It’s the beginning of summer and that brings with it a lot of family activities. You might think that would mean that progress comes to a halt on the remodeling & design efforts at Hildring House. Nope. They’ve slowed, somewhat, but certainly haven’t stopped. A lot of what is going on now involves tweaking, though. You remember the shelves in the library. We’re still rearranging but I think they’re looking quite nice, don’t you?
A new project! This one is going to be SOMUCHFUN! I love this couple and they have a really great design sensibility. When we met to discuss the project and started throwing ideas around, we were able to distill it to: earthy modern boho – sounds great, right?
I was having lunch with an interior designer friend the other day and she confessed that she was many years into her career before she realized how important her job truly was. I can understand this; I’m sure many people think of interior design/decorating as frivolous or inconsequential. But it’s not. Design matters.
Design has always mattered intensely to me – I am a homebody, I love to be home and I need to feel loved by home. I want that “aaah” feeling every time I walk in my door. And lucky for me, creating designing, decorating, these are my favorite things. I realize it’s not so for everyone:
We closed on a new property yesterday. We’re calling it Hildring House. It is a 1960 modern-ranch-style home. I guess you could call it Radern. Or Monch. For now, we’ll stick with Hildring House. This will be a short post, just to introduce it and give a little feel for the massive amount of work that has to be done to bring it up to Debra’s standards. The potential definitely is there, however, and we’re looking forward to diving in. This first pic is ill-defined, to illustrate that it’s in a kind of amorphous design state.
