As it Should Be.
Recently a client of mine posted a photo of her new kitchen to a social media site (I won't repost it here as it's not mine to do). We had worked together pretty hard to get to the finish line on this one. There was a lot of back and forth with the city, a lot of drawing, many phone calls, many revisions and a tonne of shopping. It was a good project with a great client.
The photo shows baking supplies on an island we designed together. In the background, appliances arrayed on a counter (maybe not quite where they'll live permanently yet), beautiful aqua blue tiles behind them, something already affixed to the fridge with a magnet, and, barely visible in the background is a laundry basket, – evidence of a happy family at home in their newly renovated house. Hardly the kind of photo typically used in a portfolio, which is sad because no other project photo could make me happier. This is what we were shooting for after all of those (sometimes crazy) months of working together. This is exactly what I wanted to see.
This is as it should be.
