Growing up, friends & I generally lived in newer construction homes, nestled in the burbs. So during our summer breaks/teenage wanderings, when an event brought us to the east side of Milwaukee, we would linger past sunset to walk through the neighborhoods near Lake Drive, filled with historic “mansions”.
When the sky was dark & the lights were on, we were in awe of the views, so different in style than what we were used to. Crystal chandeliers, bold, bold paint colors- royal blue, red, yellow, stately furnishings. Visuals that delight at any darn age.
To now find myself in these homes, painting & decorating, well it’s been a winding path. Unexpected twists led me to the most satisfying creative work, I never want to leave. Here is a warm example >
“Hello, I moved into the house across the street from the Smith’s and LOVE the color scheme I get to look at daily. I tried to email them to find out who helped but my emails were returned. So I googled color consultants in Milwaukee and found you. We are planning to paint the wood trim on our house & I would like you to help me select paint colors.”
The home the client refers to was one of my first exteriors (6 years ago). I can admit that now! :) We are currently working on the client’s home & 2 apartment buildings. She came to me with this wonderful array of projects. You have to see this one >
I’m dying to get started! All new color scheme wanted, completely open to direction. We must share the result!
Cheers readers, come see us for color & interior design.
