I am a cannonballer

   

Are you a cannonballer or a toe dipper?
 
I was thinking to myself about a previous blog we recently posted and how I mentioned that we are excited to leap into 2014 with so many new projects underway.  Well, I can’t recall a time that I have really gracefully entered any situation; I am one of those “cannonball” types.  As we all know, there are two different types of people, some call it type “A” or “B” personalities.  When reflecting on these two diverse types of personalities, I prefer to consider the images of someone dangling their toes into the pool or gingerly feeling the ocean water on their feet…OR the cannonball type (creating the biggest splash ever!). I am most definitely the cannonball type.  When I am ready, I totally jump in and rarely look back.
 
As we have cannonballed into 2014 we are very excited, optimistic and SUPER inspired about the fun projects we are pouring ourselves into. 
 
We are working on a few specification properties in Newport Beach, which is totally my cup of tea (or coffee because I just love coffee), I must say, thanks to my experiences at Greystone, Shea and K. Hovnanian homes.  Having worked with these home builders I learned so much about new construction, the building process and I have met some incredible people along the way.  I have incorporated this knowledge and experience into my new role as Design Principal of my own interior design boutique creating a harmonious, full service boutique for all types of design possibilities. 
 
Currently, we are not only specifying finishes for investment properties but we are also working on several one-room renovations or as I love to refer to as up-do’s. Next week we are meeting with one of our favorite clients to discuss stylizing her new back yard.  We get to help her select stone and tiles to renovate her pool and landscape. This client had us do a complete interior renovation last spring in Rossmoor Village, Los Alamitos and we just love her style and energy!
 
We are off to a fun start this year and can’t wait to share some photographs of our journeys.
 
Happy Designing!
