So...I have finally started my own blog. It has taken forever. Not because it is hard but because I have NO EXTRA TIME. Wow. I do love my life right now, though. Great kids, husband, dog, house, career, etc... Just busy.
Well...here is a picture of my first big job. My client bought a condo, finished the condo, hated the condo and started all over. That is where I came in. My client set the tone when she called to tell me that she had just bought an old Murano chandelier in NY. Not a cotton candy chandelier. A really simple and elegant clear Murano chandelier. My favorite. Then she called to tell me that she had some incredible embroidered Chinoiserie panels but they were falling apart. What could we do? I love this lady. Well, I ended up framing them in plexiglass boxes to preserve the embroidery and original silver leaf frames. I love these so much. They are spectacular. When looking at fabrics at my house she had fallen in love with my vintage chairs that I had recovered in Robert Kime's Susani. Can we get 2 more, she asked? Of course, we can. Ebay! I also just love, love, love the naughty little Opium Smoker over the fireplace that showed up next. Well, you get the picture. Dream client. Dream job. Patti...you were the best first client a girl could ask for... Thanks.
