This dark and dreary room is no place for a young mom to raise her kids and entertain friends and family.
The feathers, heavy valance, dark wood furniture have been vanquished. In the next few weeks, our goal is to turn it into the feminine glam space of her dreams. I'll post an update each week so stay tuned as we transform the dining rooms and main floor of her home.
Some background on this client, Samantha. She is one of four clients I've consulted with, and or signed this year who first found me via the Internet. In previous years, all my clients, with the exception of the amazing Doris, had been referrals. Not only did these clients Google local designers to get to me, they then read the blog, followed via Houzz, Twitter, Pinterest etc...to make sure they felt comfortable enough to invite me into their home.
Now, it may seem as if you're being stalked just a tad, but I like to think of it as clients doing their research aka due diligence. I have had a bit of Facebook stalking recently but that's a whole other post!
If you're in business, and still not comfortable with social media or understand its importance, I think I've made a case here for why it's so critical. Get on the train folks, get on the train.
Happy Hump Day!
