New Year, Who Dis?
January 28, 2023
Full disclosure, I don’t know how Insta-influencers do it. How do they manage to bring their professional A-game every single day while also maintaining an up-to-date online presence? Whatever they’re drinking, I’d love a sip. As it is, I choose to focus on my clients and the nitty gritty details of their interiors projects that bring their vision to life.
Case in point, I was radio silent most of last year because when I wasn’t busy planning my dreamy August 2022 wedding, I was knee-deep in work here in North Carolina and in Ireland. Since October I’ve had a number of projects on the go, but one in particular is on my mind at the moment: the refurbishment of a 1967 ranch-style house in Winston-Salem’s leafy Old Sherwood Forest neighborhood. What started as a simple bathroom has blossomed into a 650-square-foot extension complete with a walk-in wardrobe, dual custom vanities, a highly-detailed window seat with built-in storage, and wet room with sauna tub. To that, we’re adding a stone-paved sunroom extension with a double-sided fireplace, bi-fold doors that allow the wall separating the newly paved patio to disappear, and a split-gable exterior set off by a beautiful King Post truss. As lead designer, I have so enjoyed using my years of experience working in architecture firms, interiors, and historic preservation to weave architectural gravitas, balance, proportion, and carefully chosen materials into a cohesive scheme. My client has particular practical needs and a distinctive Transitional taste that I am excited to combine into a home that is as beautiful as it is timeless.
Permits acquired and with works scheduled to commence the first week of February, now it’s time to get down to all of the highly customized work we do at Today & Tomorrow Interiors. Bedding, casegoods, window treatments, wall coverings, lighting, rugs, and decor to name a few are on the upcoming docket. And of course, we’ll soon be choosing tile, paint colors and other selections that are an integral part of the interiors scheme.
This job is the tip of the iceberg of all that I’m excited to dive into professionally in 2023, including creating a new website dedicated solely to my interiors projects for easier navigation and a more complete online portfolio. I may not have a ton of time for Insta or keeping a blog as fresh as a Salisbury Green sunroom, but that’s just because I’m too busy doing what I love.
