    Although the project ended on a sour note, I learned some valuable lessons that I am sharing with you so you don’t make the same mistake that I did.  Listen to the podcast to hear more!

    I strayed from my process!

    I strayed from my process!

    In this solo episode, I review a previous client project to share CLAIRE-ITY.  These Burlington clients were busy working professionals with 2 young children. They were fabulous to work with and were interested in having me put everything together for their quaint sitting room. 
    Although the project went very well overall, the biggest lesson I learned was that it’s okay (in certain situations only!) to bend your processes a little, as needed. You have to go with your gut and look at the whole picture, to determine when this is okay.  No ‘red flags’ here, just a great opportunity. Listen to the podcast to hear more!

    My client’s experience of working with me

    My client’s experience of working with me

    This is the second part of my interview with past client Tara Vernest.  In this episode, we talk about the process of working with a designer from a client’s perspective and what expectations she had when she hired me. We also discuss details of having both a contractor and designer on-site and who to turn to looking at different aspects of a project.
