I landed a coveted internship with one of the greatest, Bunny Williams and worked hard, very hard. Going to Bunny's office every morning was a dream to me. I was eager to learn and willing to listen.
Bunny Williams former proteges, Todd Gribben. Todd spent a decade with Bunny and was now branching out on his own. He thought I had a great eye and offered me part-time work as his design assistant. I jumped at the opportunity. Besides his own design firm, he owns Gris - an antique shop , he's part of 1st Dibs and was a tastemaster on One Kings Lane. Class act and very talented.
After my stint with Todd, I formed my own corporation and branched out on my own. I have been mindful to build my business slowly, but steadily with quality work. I have been determined to balance motherhood with working, even if limiting projects up until now. Being a doting mother is important to me, and so is following my passion.
Why all of the sharing? Traditional Home is asking bloggers to nominate the next top 10 New Trad designers! Nominating yourself is not an option, so I'm asking my blogging friends...who wants to see images of my work (that aren't on my blog) and if you think I'm worthy, nominate me? I'm ready...are you ready to be a guest editor at Trad Home if we are both chosen?
Image property of Trad Home, with permission it's shared.I'm putting myself out there. I'm okay with taking chances. I support whomever is picked as the the new Trad Home designers, good design is good design...whether mine or some elses. Good luck to everyone who nominates and is nominated!
