Designer Insights on Terrys Fabrics

A few weeks ago I received a request to be featured on Terrys Fabrics blog. They have a section called “Designer Insights” and they have featured some fabulous designers, so I was super excited to be included in this group. The article went online today.

One of the fun things was selecting my five picks for the season. It was harder than I thought! So take a look at the interview and a few of the things I’m digging right now. Then pop over to the Designer Insights section of Terrys Fabrics and see what other designers are coveting- it’s really inspiring. Thanks for featuring me!

Meet The Newest Scout

I’m super excited to introduce the newest Scout to you all. Meet Sarah Gibson:s_gibson

Sarah comes to Vintage Scout Interiors with an expansive pedigree of design work. With a background in graphic design and marketing, a minor in art history, and photography skills to boot, I am hoping to glean some knowledge from her.

Sarah and her husband have taken on the renovation of an old farm house and she’s documented the process in her lifestyle blog, Room For Tuesday. Jump on over there, take a look, and I’m sure you’ll see why she’ll fit right in at Vintage Scout.

Please join me in welcoming Sarah to our team!

Renovating My Master Suite

I am in the middle of a full scale renovation of my master suite. We have been putting it off for years, saying its not the right time or we don’t have the money. Well, its never the right time and the money- you know that story- so I just bit the bullet and told my contractor to put me on the books.

No ifs, ands, or buts about it, renovations are tough. Everyday life becomes disrupted and then there’s the mess… drywall dust for days. The budget stretches, scope creep occurs, and something unexpected always happens. The worst part? All the decisions! Why did I do this to myself? I know the answer to that question and it’s what I continually reassure my clients in the middle of their projects: it’s going to be worth it to walk into that gorgeous new bath, actually have a place to hang my clothes, and the space I’m gonna have in that king size bed!

In the meantime; the dust, the decisions and the constant stream of contractors in the house are keeping me humble. I can’t wait to share the process with you, both in my house via the blog and your house as your design advocate.
