exciting news

You guys, I have some exciting news! I got a dreamy job in a furniture showroom here in San Diego. It is called Sofa Designers on Miramar Road. I will be creating custom upholstery for people and also going to homes as an Interior Designer to help clients create their perfect pieces. I am so thrilled to be back in my comfort zone with design, since this is exactly what I was doing in New Orleans for the past seven years. I also cannot be more excited about the wonderful people I will be working with - they are the best! I thought it might take up to six months to get a design job in SD, and it took four - the perfect Christmas present for me!

In other design news, I had this amazing stump and zinc table custom made for a New Orleans client, and it is on its way to her as we speak:

This table is really large so I cannot wait to see it in person when I am in New Orleans in a couple of weeks. I will also be shopping for a funky bohemian mirror for my San Diego client. When we started she already had the sofa, chair and pillows, and didn't like any of it.

We have added a stone and wood coffee table, white cowhide, fig tree, white side table and green glass lamp, and beautiful abstract painting.

It is already a million times warmer, but we need a huge mirror, colorful pillows, a floor pouf and throw blanket for more impact. They spent good money on the sectional and chair and unfortunately it is all just the same color as the walls, so we have to create some texture and interest.

I hope you are all having an amazing holiday season. I am looking forward to lots more design work and blog posts in the New Year as I begin working here in San Diego. Have a great week!
