E-Design for 2014

I have been waiting on this post and maybe it's getting up at 4 am this morning or the fact that I've consumed 3 coffees and about 5 chocolates that I want to send it out now! I have some new pics of two condos to share in the New Year and I'm so flipping excited to be working with an amazing designer and shop owner on a new look for Karla Dreyer Design. As I said in yesterday's post, I'm wanting to make this blog on what inspires me for 2014 and share that.

The past year I have been working on In House Design services which I love. In this service I give the client a Design Board to show them how the room will look and feel. For 2014, I am going to be doing E-Design. This is where you send me photos of your space, we discuss your needs and I provide you with a customized design plan and links to where to get all the items so you can start building your room!

Here are some examples of Design Boards. Excited for this new part of my biz. Happy Holidays!

This word keeps popping up for me. When thinking of how I want to feel at home, work, relationships the word inspired comes to mind. I search it out. I feel on a bit of a quest to surround myself with things, experiences and people that make me feel, yes...inspired.

I am going to try and focus this blog for 2014 on what I find interesting and I hope through that it will give you a little inspiration too.

So first up, here's what is inspiring me on the home front. Back in September, the amazing Kelly Deck, spoke at the IDS West show and explained how she started a sort of vision board of how she wanted her home to feel. This wasn't a picture of a certain kitchen or light fixture but a feeling. I was very inspired by this and started "pinning" my own vision board. I have tried not to think too much about it and what's interesting is a really notice a pattern. I am drawn to a neutral palette, texture, simplicity. And I notice myself removing things from my home and replacing with this feel more.

Here is my vision board. I hope you Enjoy...
