I was so excited when I first spoke to my client who was truly looking to create her real dream home. She had been preparing for this opportunity throughout her adult life, working very hard to create a successful life for herself, and had finally purchased the house that she had always dreamed of. Successful in her own right, she was stuck on the decorating of her new and happy home. Enter me.
I knew that this project was going to very special for my client but I quickly learned that on top of creating her dream home for her to enjoy for many,many, many years to come….we had exactly 9 weeks to create her dream home for her entire family to enjoy when they came for her daughter’s wedding the first weekend of November. So in true Lauren Nicole Designs fashions, my team went to work and didn’t stop until the last accessory was placed and everything was perfect for the big event.
When last week’s installation deadline was finally here, myself, my Mom, April, 6 delivery men, two delivery trucks, David my drapery installer and Robert my wallpaper installer were all ready to go. So I thought I would share with you all the highlights of the marathon 3 day installation that were truly three of my most productive and meaningful days of my career. At the end of Day 3 my client was so appreciative and so overwhelmed with the transformation of her home. Her reaction and appreciation was absolutely heart warming.
There was not one square inch left in any of the 7 suburban trips that were made and thank goodness my Mom and I are expert packers!
Gotta love a quick planning session!
My Mom said I look like I should have had a cape on in this picture and been Lauren the Super Decorator. Ha! I thought she was funny but I think she may have been right!
The landscape crew was also in full effect!
I love this cabbage plant!
It was a cushion explosion! These camel colored cushions go to a sectional sofa in this very cool indoor/outdoor room that I will show you soon!
These two dining room table bases are just ah-mazing!
Here is Paco saying, ‘seriously Lauren?!’ because this was the heaviest coffee table. Ever.
But it was worth every ounce of muscle needed. So pretty!
The outdoor spaces came together so nicely and were the first places to get done. So here is your sneak peek into the Nothing Like a Wedding installation (yes this project deserves it’s own title) but this is just the beginning. Stay tuned this week as I take you through the rest of the process and delve into certain topics like how to accessorize your bookshelves!
Great tips, beautiful rooms and maybe even a giveaway all ahead this week.
