April marks the end of my term as President of the High Desert Design Council
(HDDC). In fact, it will be the first time since the group started that I won't be on the board.
For groups like this, new members equal new ideas. A fresh start all around. Looking forward to seeing what's next!
Designing is a term that encompasses many aspects. I spent last week creating a website for Living in the Garden
, an incredibly gorgeous garden center in Pullman, Washington.
I enjoy the diversity of creating beautiful spaces whether they're in a home, a business, or on the web!
I've spent the last few months helping with the design of a delightful, fun, slightly quirky outdoor wedding. Since I live 4 hours from the wedding site, we used Pinterest to share ideas.
It was a good way to share inspirational photos and to get a clear idea of what both the bride and groom liked and disliked.
The wedding was last weekend and it was charming!
A little visual interest as one comes up the stairs to my office: air plants (tillandsia) suspended on cables.
Doug Wagner of ModernFab
shares the deck space with me between our offices. We've been tossing around ideas for months on how to incorporate a "green wall" or vertical garden in this space. As I'm not much of a gardner, I thought air plants would be the easiest to care for since I definitely do not have a green thumb. Doug designed the metal/cable system to tie in with the deck/stair railing. Happy with our collaboration!
After having company for the weekend, I realized the guest bath could use a few more 'hooks'. A place for guests to place their robes as they're showering - more space for towels, etc. Rather than driving to town to shop for something, I hit the stash...the ever-growing pile of items that I just might use someday...for something.
A friend of mine used to work for a cabinet company. She gave me a number of door and drawer fronts that (for whatever reason) didn't quite meet muster. I used one as a board for my project...a place to mount three mismatched door knobs to use as the hooks.
Perfect for what I had in mind...and it didn't cost me a thing!
