The job I allude to

You've seen my intern in action before, and I wanted you to know that I'm keeping her busy.
The end of last year was a crazy full time for us- wrapping up things for clients, attempting to install items before holiday parties, etc. I don't know that I've explicitly explained before that I am an interior designer (schooled, worked in a professional firm, time with Holly Hunt in Chicago), and in the summer of 2009, I started my own company, Foster House Interior Design. FYI, if you click that link to my site, please excuse it. It desperately needs updating. Its on the list.

I though yall might want to see a little bit of what I've been doing at work. These photos aren't professional, edited, or staged, and most of these pictures don't show the final product. I realize this is an interior design sin to show unfinished work, but I've decided that I'm okay with it.
The photo below is a room I am currently wrapping up. We're waiting on a few more pillows, cocktail table, art (obviously), etc. But I had to share the color scheme with you because I LOVE it. The walls are Benjamin Moore 2166-30 Bronze Tone.
I'll post more pictures of this house soon.

These next few pictures are a from a fun project that is having a busy week this week. Their custom Dining Room rug was delivered on Wednesday, the built-in's I designed are getting the finishing touches, the painters have been on site, and the electrician wrapped up his final trip (for now) yesterday. I'll post pictures of the spaces once they're finished, but for now, here are few sneak peeks...
This is the scheme for the Living Room (sorry its sideways). I love the evergreen and turquiose combo- effervescent.
Check out this vintage piece...
It has gotten a makeover, and is being delivered tomorrow. Can't wait to see it!

Here are the DwellStudio pillows we had made, and I think they also look nice on my sofa...
Hope you've enjoyed a little glimpse into my work. I'll post more soon, if you tell me you like to see it :)
