we're moving november 1st.
ed has given me free range over the design of our condo - however, we're on a very tight budget and whatever i decide to do can not be a permanent thing. we're only going to be here for a couple of years but as i see it, for those years i want to live in a space that i find comfort and relaxation in. i want it to be a home. our home.
so this will be my first "rental" budget re-design. i plan on using our space to get more low budget clients and even clients living in rental units for fast and quick fix-me-ups. after all every challenge is an opportunity.
there are 2 things i definitely want to incorporate in the space. first, a black wall and second a white fireplace mantel. the black wall i'm thinking of putting up in our dining area. we have 1 large wall in the dining room which is hidden from the rest of the house unless you walk into the dining area that i would love to paint black against a row of black and white photographs. the white manel fireplace i want to fill with chopped wood and place on one of the walls in the living room which filters into a sun room which is surrounded by floor to ceiling windows which makes the entire space feel very much like a loft.

one of my passions when it comes to designing is mixing vintage with modern. luckly i've been able to work with clients who have the same love of design as myself.
