and what an exciting first half it has been!
We had a few post migration snafus with the blog last week that have been resolved. We were busy finishing off our #TrexRooftopMHD project in time for yet another Chloe Magazine shoot. This one was a Design meets Fashion shoot. I snuck a few shots in end of last week for you. A few more in progress shots are forthcoming here today. The spread will be in their Summer Issue available this July.
The week ahead is exciting for a few different reasons; First Courtney of Courtney Out Loud infamy is flying his fabulous self all the way to Toronto to um, be my intern for the week. Yes, you read that correctly. After a year or maybe more now of teasing me about wanting to intern for me, he took the redhead by the horns and asked if he could shadow me in my own element. I am still recovering from the shock that his sweet sentiments were actually serious and more so that he is making it happen. I hope I don't scare him off of Design Forever.
We're in the middle of installing a contemporary residential project. Sadly, the client has requested that it not be a part of the blog but I will be sharing some of the conceptual aspects of the job that will give you some insight into the range that MHD has. We're very excited about how it is all coming together.
We're also trying out Area Rugs at our Kingswood 2.0 project this week. SO. MUCH. FUN. Area rugs are always a wild card for me. I've mentioned this before but I always choose to do area rugs last in projects. Then we pick a bunch to try out and I kid you not, rarely is my first choice or favourite the one we end up loving in the space. By we I mean the client and I. I often love rugs that don't speak to the client in the same language that is speaking to me. I especially love when we put down a rug and Jumpy Claps happen.
Major meetings moving our #KellysBakeShoppe & #81Yorkville Salon projects this week too and The Permit Gods finally got their arses in gear and finalized Permits for our #SnugBistro project. The clients for that have decided to change the restaurant name (I'm not disappointed) I think it's going to be #25Liberty but I will have to get back to you on that.
Here's what all this looks like in pictures...
