Coming Attractions: Our Renovation

For the past two years, I've been working with an amazing designer, Lauren Muse, of Muse Interiors.  Lauren helped us decorate all the new spaces involved in our home renovation project.  I've been nagging Lauren to get a portfolio of her work on the web, so that I could share her great style here...
The sign outside Lauren's offices
Lauren was so busy with clients, that she couldn't dedicate the time needed to create the site that she had envisioned for her growing company.  Recently, with the help of her terrific assistants, Ryan and Heather,  Lauren was able to get started on her soon-to-be launched website. As part of this project, John Bessler, a very well known interiors photographer, and Karin Lidbeck-Brent, a talented photo stylist, were here last week, along with Lauren and her team, to shoot my home for Lauren's portfolio. 
 Here is a sample of John Bressler's work
from past projects he has done:

  

And here are some photos from Karin's extensive portfolio:



And, what would a post entitled, "Coming Attractions" be, without a sneak peak of what Lauren helped to design here at our home!

Maison de Zhush!
Needless to say...we are thrilled with the results...pops of purple and all!  Hopefully, the rest of the photos will be published in a shelter mag...but if not, you can be sure I will be posting them here!
