As a native New Englander, I can tell you that springtime gives us a boost of energy filled with extended sunlit days and bits of color sprouting out all around us. It is the time of year that we are wishing away the piles of snow along the streets and searching our gardens for the slightest bit of “green”. It’s the time of year that we are so eager to add rich color to the grey landscape that we have been living in over the past few months of winter.
This is how I feel when I begin the journey of design with a new client. Their house is the landscape or the backdrop of their life that we will fill with the elements of dimension & depth, scale of color, life experiences and always an eliminate of surprise! Take a peek at these pictures included in this post that help visualize these things. Look at the symmetry of the depth, dimensions and color in the rich velvet green mountains with white silk tips against the calming blue of the sky and then giggle at these hands sprouting out of the water anchoring this building!
The single most important part of my job is to get to know my clients, they are the “focal point” of the job. The challenge for me is to fill each room with things that will make every family member feel happy in that space and incorporate all of the elements. It could be as simple as the fabric color on the sofa that makes mom smile when she walks by it or the fuzzy-furry white pillows on that sofa that makes the teenage girl feel like a movie star or the ultra-lux seat cushion that the dad sits in at the end of a long day. That one piece that makes everyone feel like it was put there just for them.
What I love most about being part of the design team at Darby Road HOME, DRH is that we work together to keep our showroom filled with pieces that allow us to take a house and make it a home! We have so much fun and we welcome our customers into the store as if they were guests in our own home with great music playing in the background, a cup of coffee or glass of prosecco. We surround you with stunning furniture, accessories and art to inspire and make you feel as you do on a warm, sunny spring day.
I’ve been with DRH for a little over 3 years and a designer for a little over 20 years! I live on the Southshore with my husband where we raised two fantastic girls. We love entertaining our family & friends and I love changing my décor seasonally…no surprise!
