Labor Day weekend is fast approaching, and aside from the holidays, it is one of the busiest times of year for design pros. Many people want to wrap things up by this weekend for a variety of reasons: from hosting an end-of-summer bash, to getting things finished before school starts back up, to coming home from their vacations and wanting to arrive to a finished space!
Whatever the reason behind it, designers this week are slammed! I like to think that I’m a bit more composed than a headless chicken, but when all is said and done, you can find me enjoying at least one day off with a cocktail in my hand and hopefully some sand beneath my feet. I’m coming for you Labor Day!!
Probably the biggest thing I have going right now is one of my clients will be hosting all of the festivities surrounding their niece’s wedding. After purchasing a new house, almost every room has a project that needs to be completed. We have been focusing on taking care of the rooms that are completely empty or will be high-traffic areas before we work on the spaces that are outdated and just need a change.
We have all been running around from Philly to New York and all corners of the internet to find materials, make selections and get things ordered. The thing is, despite ordering in advance and selecting “overnight” shipping options, we are still waiting for a few key pieces. Friday morning, I will be bustling around their home getting window treatments hung and placing furnishings that might only be placeholders just to fill the space before the parties begin.
I will take some pictures if I have time and share next week what the house looks like in it’s temporary state of completion, place-holders included. And then you can really see the transition of the space coming together. For now, all of the pictures included here are of the space as it was when I first came to see it before starting work on the space.
The one space I’m missing is their son’s bedroom, which I’m kicking myself for not taking a photo of, since even though we are doing very little with his space, the changes we are making will likely have a HUGE impact.
Anyway.. that’s what I’m up to! What are your Labor Day plans?
