My friend Susan the decorator and her assistant Mary recently won the bid to decorate two models for a high rise condo going up in our nearby town. This was a great job for them and luckily they asked me to join in and help out with my trees and some other silks. I recently went to the models with them for a day of trial and error on placing accessories. The rules are very strict with construction so without further ado, let me show you a most flattering picture of such a stunning trio! :)
I am on the left, Susan in the middle and Mary on the right
No doubt they would try to physically harm me if they knew I was placing this picture on my blog. Shhhhh!
A workman had to escort us with whatever we were carrying up in a makeshift elevator. Notice Susan’s TJ Maxx bag. She wears it proudly.
Susan and Mary each had their own condo to decorate. Susan’s was more traditional to transitional. Here is the entry hall.
I really thought these mirrors were a cleaver way to take up wall space in a long hallway. She wanted even more but the money was too tight. It definitely brightened the area.
This was one of my very favorite parts of the decorating. Susan found some old sheet music at an antique store. Notice the perfect coloring for the decor.
The music was actually falling apart. She like the words so she cut part of it and included it on the bottom part of the frame. This was done by herself (not custom) with a frame she found at Hobby Lobby. It was an open frame that she bought glass for. Click on the picture to read the words. I LOVED THIS!
She also went to an estate auction and bid on these retro dishes. Again, the perfect color and feel for what she wanted. The table was very small and round, so I could only do a vase with some stems coming up the middle. The day I was there, a lot of work still had to be done so I didn’t get a lot of the finished pictures.
This was the bath off the master bedroom… And here is part of the master bedroom. I am so sad the lighting didn’t allow me to get a good picture. This chair had the cutest little leopard print you ever did see.
This is the living room in Mary’s more contemporary condo done in eggplant.
This winds up my tour for today. I wished I could have been there on the final day to get better pics, but I think you get the idea.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit today. I love having you to share projects going on in my life.
