Re: House plans coming along

I'm going to have a customers wife come out and help me since she went to school for design and likes to do it on the side.  She doesn't work outside the house and has told me that she's itching to "have some fun"....I think I'm scared...LOL

Re: House plans coming along

Just make sure the result fits your taste, and Todd's. Mike's sister had a decorator do their whole house, almost forty years ago. It was beautiful, and great quality...then, with only two older people in it, what wouldn't last? She has changed virtually nothing, except the television, in four decades!

I had to laugh when she visited Jenna's house last year...she kept remarking on how creative everything was...how she wished she " could do that!" It is a mishmash of old pieces we gave Jenna, her wild paint choices, a few vintage finds I made at friend's shop, etc.

Her comments were way beyond just being polite. I noticed her next couple of times we talked, saying she needs to change some pretty significant stuff at their place.

I guess when you spend decorator-level dollars, you live with it a LOOONNNGGG time! Make sure your friend knows your budget.

Enjoy!

Re: House plans coming along

It will definately have to fit mine and Todd's taste.  Neither of us are fussy and we don't like a lot of knick knack stuff so it'll be interesting.  I'm more interested in her helping us pick out paint colors and what not.  It would be tough to decorate with all our dead animals on the walls that we have.  4 deer head, a duck, a goose, and a phesant.  2 sets of elk horns and a 56" muskie that will be coming as well.  These will all be in the family room (Todd's man cave room) anyways but it should still be interesting.  I'm looking for comfortable as my main objective with everything else.
