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.
