“HELP!” cried the email, from a lovely divorced single parent rebuilding a nest in a high-rise condo, “Is there a Design Doctor in the house?”
With a busy professional life, and enough resources to buy the basics – sofa, coffee table, dining table, desk and office console, and a killer view that she felt wasn’t being maximized – our client was at a complete standstill in her decorating project and needed help with the finishing touches.
She liked the “Huffington” aesthetic of marrying old and new and high and low, and loved the art from the gallery. The only catch was that she was busy and in a hurry, and asked if we could do it all in one morning, just three days away.
Two of our Design Doctors, Heather and Debbie, were dispatched to the condo for a quick recon, before scheduling the movers, booking the elevator and gathering a truckload of art and accessories into the condo. It was the fastest fluff we’ve ever done. (And it was so much fun!)
Our job is done and our client is thrilled. We wish we could do the terrace, but it’s raining, so we give her some suggestions for pillows and accessories, then wrap up our pieces that didn’t make the cut. It’s 1:30 p.m., our time is up and we head out.
Over the weekend we get a nice note from our client, with pictures of her terrace, which is the icing on the cake.
Her note says:
“After the divorce I worked on ‘me’ (the 3 “L’s” – lipo, lift & new life). Then I looked around my condo and realized it needed a lift as well. Thank goodness that your Huffington Design Docs came to the rescue!”
Thank you, dear Client, and we’re so glad you’re cured!
PS: Are you in need of a little Design Rx? If so, call on us. Our Design Docs are happy to help whether it’s a minor fluff or a full redesign. Just take it from our condo client: This cure is so much fun!
