Remember last year when I was too busy to blog because I was decorating a friends place? Well what I didn’t share with you was that the joint was being staged rather than decorated. Yes, staged for a photo shoot and then a party.
Let me show you around,
Don’t be too picky as I’m only responsible for most of the work. If you like it, then I did it. If you don’t, then it was the work of the home owner.
The foyer, (foy-yay), as it’s pronounced in a proper Southern accent. This tree literally swallowed ornaments. The Hungry Christmas Bitch!
The upstairs Art Deco drawing room.
The front parlor, (paa-lah).
The Louis style commode in the dining room. Showcasing my latest invention, Instant Drapery. See what you do is…go to Home Depot and buy $6.00 drop cloths then clip’em, poof’em and zhoozh’em.
The glorious wreath I made from scratch. My girlfriend Heather said, “Oh no, no, no, You can’t cover up a mirror like that…all the girls will want to check themselves in it, you have to take it down!” Turns out it was the highlight of the Christmas party. If you stood to the left of the wreath and a cameraman stood to the right, then your face magically appeared inside the wreath. Next day it was everyone’s new Facebook picture. Heather said, “Woah, I misjudged that one.” See darling that’s why I’m the professional Kringle here…
The dining room table by Knoll in extinct Brazilian rosewood with extremely fussy Christmas table runner centerpiece, I call it, “Leftover Christmas Doo-Dad Jewelry on White Porcelain”.
Lindsey Mae the harlequin Great Dane lying on her throne.
I gave you my work, the very next day you packed it away...
