Yes! … our Studio Grand-Opening in the Semple Mansion was super lovely and we are so blessed that so many of you came out to celebrate with us!
I am still doing a bit of recovery… taking care of client appointments and design projects that were scheduled after our crazy week last week, BUT… I promise to have some wonderful photos and sneak peeks of our studio for you real soon!
Alicia and I just want to thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for your lovely support!
Be back soon…
It’s a Grand-Opening Celebration!
Yes… in only 2 weeks… we will be celebrating our new studio space! Please join me at the opening of our new Studio Space that I’ll be sharing with Alicia Danzig of Lulu Painting.
Yes, it is the final rush of completing our colorful little studio and filling it with lovely things in time for a party to take place! There is still so much to be done. In amongst painting, designing and taking care of our clients, we are also planning the final details for the delightful evening we have in store for you!
The event will be held from 7-9 pm with optional preview shopping from 6-7pm. Enjoy a tour of the Semple Mansion and it’s other wonderful businesses, music, happy drinks, special desserts, toasts and giveaways! (We’re giving away lots of lovely things… services, self-care, jewelry, special treats.)
There is free parking located across the street from the Semple in the Park Nicollet parking lot. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at; email@example.com or call me at: 763-441-6950.
So, please come, bring a friend, tour, mingle, shop, eat and celebrate with us in our Opening Gala!
Okay, I thought I better share some of what is going on in our space!
Progress has been slower than we desire in the remodel and construction of our new studio space, but none-the-less, it is finally moving along! We are a bit further than these photos will show now, but I will give another update soon, as things are changing every day around here.
To start off with… this space was awful when we signed the lease…. a dark, dirty storage room in the lower level of the mansion that had not been rented out before. We knew it had potential for our first joint studio space… so we plunged ahead anyway!
Here is what we found….
Just to let you know… none of the stuff in the space was ours at this point, so it the cleaning staff had to remove all the items stored there before we could even get to the next step.
Oh, these pipes… they have been quite the challenge. We have chosen to ignore the ones on the ceiling (as most other tenants on our level have) but the ones coming down the wall are being encased in a wall for the most part.
The joy of old buildings!
Okay… this is a small hint as to what is to come for the space. We used some inspiration from this House Beautiful issue to add some design and style to our space. To transform this space we will definitely be pulling all of our design tricks out. Decorating with paint and color will be the most transforming elements. In the next post… I will let you in a bit more on what that inspiration direction is!
That’s all for today… thanks for stopping by!
