It’s all about collaborative LOVE

JHIDUncategorized

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I thought I would write a little post about work appropriate love.

My favorite projects are those where we have a great big group of talents. It starts with the architect, interior designer, engineer, and contractor team, and then builds to landscape architect and lighting designer, if we are lucky. Construction begins and in comes the artisans- they aren’t just subcontractors in my world. Experts in their field, they can offer new perspectives and expertise to enhance our designs.

I am lucky to have discovered and assembled a killer team of fabricators that we collaborate with during the furniture phase. The sassy seamstress, metal mastermind, quirky furniture maker, finisher magician, family of upholsterers…you know who you are.

I am grateful for all of the talents I have the pleasure of collaborating with. Those that try to handle it all themselves are really missing out on all the fun. After all, I wouldn’t be in this business if it wasn’t fun!

Happy Friday, Happy Valentines Day. XOXO
