For those of you who know me and who have been to the store you may already know that I have a passion for design! I have always loved color, texture, patterns, architecture, interiors and of course fashion….you get the picture! My problem is I have the vision, but I don’t have the hand to put any of my ideas onto paper or execute them for that matter. I always wanted to go to a high profile design school such as Parsons, but was intimidated by the lengthy applications that required extensive portfolios…that I did not have. If I were to be presented with the Parsons applications again…I can promise you I would not be intimidated. My portfolio has always been in my head….I guess that is why my love for design remains a passion! When I was in my teens and in college you could have asked me any day and I would have said I want to be a fashion designer….after graduating that was still in my mind, but architecture and interior design was a close second! Opening Meadow truly gave me the opportunity to explore everything I have ever dreamed of doing….I designed almost every aspect of the store with the consulting of a few other brilliant minds, chose all of my fixtures, fabrics and of course the clothing. It took forever, but was worth the wait!
Bob and I keep talking about buying a new house….we really are outgrowing the home we are in now and with that comes a new project for me to work on! Of course first we have to find the perfect house for the FIVE of us….Bob, Ella, me and our Cavalier King Charles Spaniels (Sophie & Yaya)! So here is what my passion has been driving me to do in my spare time….I look at Elledecor.com and determine how I am going to make my new home look like something out of a magazine! I would be happy with any of these spaces!
