We had a great time working with Kari. She is delightful! Love your blog! (But not the glossy ceiling in a bedroom.) :-) Keep up the awesome creativity!

Your POV had become a little famous. Might want to participate there so they can talk to you better and you can attract more readers.

Second best part of interior design is technology.. what would we do without the easy access to our clients?!!!

As for the ceiling… I believe it is a little to “Vegas” (if ya know what I mean) for the style of the room. Its classy, and then bamb…

I have too much fun doing my own! And I’m afraid I’d feel “boxed” in – what if I just find something random I want to add? How would I feel? Would I second guess my decisions? (Yes, I know, I think way to much.) I’m a constant re-designer. Drives my hubby batty. : )

Our fellow Chicagoans, Kelly + Olive, do a great job, and if you haven’t heard of Betsy Burnham’s Instant Space, that’s another great resource. Thanks, Gabrielle, for including us in your post and LOVE your sister’s living room! Is that little Ikat settee the Nate Berkus one? Great color palette. As for the glossy ceiling…not sure I’m loving it. Makes me feel like I’m under water- not in a good way. Love glossy walls though! Great trick for dark apartments, we did it in ours – it bounces light all over the place.

*I’m also mentioned in the article above as I just launched children’s design to-go… But I do lots more than that!

I’m in NYC and would love to help. Shoot me an email at michele@lavenderandplum.com.

I have been looking for decorating/design ideas for my new living room. This helps me out oh so much. Thank you for posting this.

BTW, I LOVED the pictures of your sweet June! I especially love the 2 of her 5 siblings surrounding and loving her. What a precious moment to capture.

Glossy ceiling elsewhere = cool.

I also am very, very excited by the idea of long-distance design services. What a great way to make use of technology and gain a wider base of possibilities from both a client and designer perspective. As someone who is contemplating trying to make a career change into becoming a designer, this idea has a lot of appeal. Greater ease of working at home which matches well with having a family, and being able to cast a wide net. I can’t believe I didn’t hear/read (or grasp it if I have come across it!) about this sooner. Thanks, Gabby!!

As for me, I think playing with texture and different types of surfaces is always a neat way to add impact and interest to a room. I would say, though, that for me personally, I wouldn’t do it in a bedroom, and I definitely prefer the color version to the white version. How about that cool black basement you featured (was it yesterday?)…I wonder how it would look with a low ceiling…could be cool.

We are painting our house this summer and I am quite overwhelmed with choices. The house was built in 1908. I love the idea of accessing a great designer from another part of the country. Thanks.

The glossy yellow paint is classy, though it would make my textured bedroom ceiling look like meringue or something from a bad sci-fi flick.

Best,
Tina

For years now, I have helped people via email and fed ex sending paint swatches, graph paper, carpet samples, etc… It’s a great way to make decorating more accessible and less intimidating! Although I’d rather help in person, in the actual room, there is something nice and easy about sending off the plans and letting someone else complete the project. P.S. I love the glossy ceiling. It made my heart skip a beat.

I love the idea of someone advising virtually, but don’t know that it would work in a redistr. situation. Regarding that mirror-ish ceiling – holy claustriphobia. Mirrors generally open up space because of how they reflect light, but in that scenario, it feels like the ceiling is pulled down closer to the floor.

I’ve never used a design expert as I’m lucky to have my hubby — an industrial designer who specializes in interior architecture and marketing. I have a few years of design school under my belt too. Most of the time we can collaborate in a good way. Other times I wish he would just go with the program!
