…..TRUTH be told, I would far more enjoy reporting to you about some amazing chandelier I got in Los Angeles…like these from my FAVE place…well I HAd many FAVES…but this one
MADE ME WEAK AT THE KNEES….
or I would loved to have stashed in my luggage a few things at
WHERE I met some of my Design Idols…..
WHERE I am sure they had to haul out the mop to clean up the tears and drool I left behind…honestly the Textiles…basically everything there… Works of ART!!!
..but alas, I am home, in my own little “Greenwood at Home” , I have left HOLLYWOOD and even my new amazingly talented and beautiful new Designer friend “HOLLY” of The English Room- Musings of a Design Afficianado” behind…I am back to real life and while not all makeovers are very pretty…they ARE important and in the end will make room for much beauty to be REVEALED down the line….SIGH
THE UPSTAIRS CEILING MAKEOVER
A little over a year ago, after years of lining the upstairs hall with buckets and before replacing the roof…our old plastered ceiling gave way….and came crashing down…chunks at a time…loud and dusty and messy….! Forces beyond our control contributed to the time lag and finally NOW, this week…the blizzard behind us…Our upstairs ceilings are being replaced.
They will do the Hall, the master bedroom and bath first…and then do the kids rooms in April.
…SO…THERE YOU HAVE IT..I am home and the beat goes on. Last week was just what the Doctor ordered. It was an amazingly Validating week…It was good to get away…I made wonderful new friends, invaluable connections, and met so many of my Design Idols. I promise to post about them this week. I was inspired to just continue on the path I have carved out….in fact, perhaps the sentiment which resonated throughout the week, repeated in a multitude of ways by nearly every speaker was…
FIND YOUR NICHE AND JUST GET VERY GOOD AT THAT THING THAT MAKES YOU SPECIAL!!!!”
more on my new friends…here is a sneak peek….
