Use the fine china!

Although I am not really a “planner” type of person, I do like to have a really good reason before I will break out the china or glam up the house.
With all that life has thrown in the past few years, some good and many a challenge…I am realizing that I need to count my blessings – and use the fine china!
New Year’s Eve was no exception. I did not have a plan, I didn’t even have a single decoration. All hail to the local grocery store for supplying the last minute-ers like me with a few party horns and tiaras. My best girlfriend and I dug out my beautiful silver chargers from Crate and Barrel and quickly washed a few pieces of hardly ever used china and stemware. We raided the Christmas tree for tone on tone ornaments and threw them in a tall vase together to create a charming little barware space on top of our vintage record player.
With a tiny bit of effort we transformed our average buffet into a sparkly celebration! And thus began our ultimate resolution to really let the New Year begin.
I’m excited to see what fortunes this year holds and am truly motivated to put my efforts and talents to use every way I can think of whether or not I have a “really good reason” to. Most importantly, I intend to live in the moment.
I sincerely hope that you enjoy reading the posts to come where I will share my design insights that have come from years of staging homes, working as a graphic designer and from the endless hours spent honing my photography skills.
