Hello there!  It all started with a conversation with Ron Snyder.  He asked me, can you paint a mural for our new pediatric playroom?  Sure…can I decorate the room, too?  Then came a quick visit to the actual space for photos.  Then a visit for measuring and talking.  Then came a ton of Pinterest posts.  I am not one of those Pinterest-ruins-my-life people.  Pinterest is a powerful tool.  Think of a bulletin board with hyperlinks.  Cool!  Then came a tangible moodboard, and some swatches of grasscloth and other blues and greens, a quick printout of a photo I took, etc.  I took this tangible copy with me to the office to show the staff my thoughts.  I tried not to schedule too many meetings since I usually charge per hour and I like to keep things efficient.  At this point I would like to add an observation.  People hear “hire a decorator” and get intimidated.  A decorator can get a lot done in an hour.  I know that our church hired one just to decide what color to paint a main accent wall.  DONE.  Anyway, Ron and I did some quick messaging back and forth to handle the quick questions.  For example, he chose the theme, Shore Thing, in a quick Facebook message.  Done!

I am very sorry to leave you hanging.  I need to do this post in parts.  We are having some major drama at my house!!!  Stay tuned!  The rope knot definitely comes in later.  I’m posting it now because the picture is so bright and cheery. Unlike…my..house…right…now.

More soon!

Hannah
