NEW LIFE, NEW BEAUTY
Happy Thanksgiving! It’s been a while… and a baby… since I last wrote. As the season grows crisp and we nestle in for the holidays, our homes and our surroundings grow ever more important to us.
A quick update on BMD and what has transpired in the past few months. I welcomed my second son, Chase, on May 5th. Life with a newborn and a pre-schooler is busy, but days at BMD have been even busier. Since Chase was born, I wrapped up a renovation job in the Hamptons, began work on 3 new construction projects in Manhattan, helped a company imagine their new office space, and have been putting the finishing touches on a couple of other longtime projects.
Internally, I moved in to a new sun-drenched office in midtown and am hoping to finish my own apartment by early 2019. (The clients there – my husband and sons – are my toughest yet.)
Reflecting on my career came to a head yesterday with a conversation with my 4 year old:
“Why do you work, Mommy?”
“I work so I can make people’s homes prettier.”
“Because people feel happier when they live in a pretty place.”
I truly believe this, and this is motivation to keep going and growing, and continuing to find ways to help you realize your aesthetic vision. Companies are investing more in their office space now more than ever because people have been proven to be more productive in surroundings that inspire them. I feel the same way in my office and in my own home. I really am happier and more settled in a space I enjoy to be in and that feels balanced and beautiful. Aren’t you?
The fall has been non stop. I can’t wait to catch up with all of you soon. And at the risk of being unprofessional, a picture of Chase for you… at left.
As always, please reach out with any thoughts, questions, or stories. I love to hear from you.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families, and best wishes for the holidays ahead.
In good design,
