Whether you’re a fan of her movies like me or not, I’m willing to bet you’ve at least thought to yourself how great it would be to live in one of the homes featured in Nancy Meyer’s films. They are the epitome of effortless style. None more iconic that Erica Barry’s home in Something’s Gotta Give.
If you’re anything like me, you devoured Anatomy of a Scandal on Netflix. Based on the book by Sarah Vaughan, the psychological thriller tells the story Sophie (Sienna Miller), the attractive albeit long-suffering wife of James Whitehouse (Rupert Friend), an ambitious Tory MP in the British government. While the story itself is predictable, the stunning interiors, Sienna Miller’s impossibly chic style and my love of Rupert Friend, had me captivated.
For me the design process has always been a fluid one, navigating unexpected surprises, while maintaining budgets and timelines, but never more so than in the last year and a half. The endless pandemic related shortages and delays, have challenged all of us in the industry and most especially our clients to be nimble and patient.
Nothing could be truer for my clients at our Livingston Project. Having worked hard to build their new home, my sweet clients reached out early to start the furnishing process. Despite the extra lead time we couldn’t get ahead of the Covid supply issues, which had us re-evaluating, re-selecting and finally releasing – trusting that things would show up and be worth the wait. Thankfully, I’m happy to report, that nearly a year to the day we first met, my clients home is complete and it was indeed worth the wait.
