A Colorful Vibe

Kelly Wearstler shared her new blog yesterday, MyVibe MyLife, with some pics from her office and some organizational tricks, like her color trays for each client.


   


Like Kelly, we try and stay organized by containing our inspirations for each client in separate bins.


We organize & label everything in our office! Drawers full of hardware, wallcoverings, stone and wood samples and each manufacturer has a home on our shelf. I also keep file drawers full of magazine clippings, filed by room or idea so I can grab a collection of looks that fit a client, like... "tudor style kitchens". Clear drawers hold fabric swatches from our go to showrooms like, Quadrille, Madeline Weinrib, Sister Parish and Schumacher.

 


 

Each week, Anne Marie schedules a showroom to visit our office and present new lines or ideas. This builds our library and keeps us up to date on all the new happenings in the design world. To keep our designs fresh and new- these meetings become so important to the process.



I use this large bulletin board above my desk to remind me of ideas, travel snapshots or past projects to inspire, remind and push me to discover the next big idea.
