I'm sorry for my lack of posts and visits the last few weeks. I mentioned we are creating new systems in our business, we started by employing an operations manager (big word for me He! He!) so that all I have to do is the fun part create, buy and design.We now have a retail floor manager, decorators and admin staff that will make us "iron out our creases" so to speak and provide even better services to our clients. We want to expand and grow our interior design business to become a team of decorators. The recession is keeping people home more, they are entertaining at home, having dinner parties rather than dining at expensive restaurants. My customers are wanting us to help set an impressive dining table, add new curtains to there home, sometimes its just small little touches they are after, some wanting a complete make over. I'm just loving that are homes are becoming a place we love, not modern minimalist spaces that lack any character or style. The old crystal is coming out, linen tablecloths, candles and beautiful flowers, tables are being filled with books and family photos are back on the wall.
