today i officially finished my 2 powder rooms at the 2015 aso decorators show house! i say "officially" because i had the fabulous photographer, emily jenkins followill, shoot my rooms today and i'm not changing anything and my brain is not allowed to think about it anymore. period. what they look like now is what they will look like for the opening night party and for the tour. i say "finished" because up until she started shooting i was still cleaning, rearranging, second guessing, rearranging, sweating, staring... mid afternoon i left the show house, starving cause i hadn't eaten lunch, but so immensely satisfied with my attempts that i will definitely sleep well tonight! never mind all my poor clients who have been so graciously patient with me (well, that's a huge over statement). lesson learned here is that it's reeeeaaaaaly difficult to juggle a show house and a couple of full houses and several smaller projects at the same time. i'm pretty sure i've already mentioned that i'm a tad nutso, so that's really not new info. but i'm an aries so it's expected. :)
anyway. let's party people!! it was my 45th birthday yesterday. yes, i'm perfectly ok admitting that! as it turns out, the aso decorators show house also turns 45 this year!! how appropriate is that! so. i'd like to cordially invite all of you to my (our) birthday party (opening night party, whatever) on friday, april 17th!!! here is the link to the show house site, where you can purchase your party tickets, as well as get a list of the shops selling tour tickets. the opening night gala includes a ribbon cutting ceremony, lots of alcohol (always a must ;), dinner, music and dancing, a silent auction, and lots of mingling with the designers and other very important people (my dad and his wife will be there!! you don't want to miss that!?) such as hgtv's vern vip and chip wade!!! and me, getting my uptown funk you up on the dance floor! all proceeds benefit our phenomenal atlanta symphony. we have all worked so hard and the house is so well done! come party with us and get your exclusive personal tour from all the designers themselves :)
hope to see you there!
