Happy Friday Y’all! This week has flown by as I’ve been so busy and I couldn’t be happier that it’s the weekend. We’re grabbing dinner with some friends tonight and tomorrow I’m hoping for a productive day – we’ve got some errands to run, home projects to complete, etc. I’ve also got a LOT of blog projects in the work (including my website which still needs help…anyone have a tech they can recommend?) so it should be a fun but busy weekend. Enjoy yours!
Wishing that I was traveling to Cape Town (for a million reasons) so that I could stay in this stunning Airbnb. This penthouse apartment is huge and decorated absolutely beautifully. It’s got a huge private roof deck with a plunge pool and insane 360 view of the city. Cape Town is one of those cities that you want to see from high up. The mountains, the ocean, the city…there’s so much to see! I must also mention that this place has my dream accordion doors which basically create an entire indoor-outdoor living space between the living room and the terrace. It’s truly stunning.
Reading this powerful piece about how fear holds us back. I remember speaking with a wise friend as I was going through my last breakup and she kept telling me that fear was dictating all of my decisions. Fear of being alone. Fear of embarrassment. Fear of failure. I couldn’t agree with her more and I’ve since passed that advice along to others that I see falling into that pattern. Trust me, you should read this.
My design business is taking off and I couldn’t be more thrilled about it. I updated my design portfolio HERE but for some reason it’s not showing on my homepage (again, any tech gurus out there able to help?). I was recently approached by one friend to help with her studio apartment, a local business to redesign their employee lounge and a real estate company looking for design help for their clients. It’s overwhelming, exciting and scary all in the same. I do not claim to be an expert or label myself an “interior designer”; however, I’m trying to get more projects under my belt and learning as I go!
