While we are still finding ourselves social distancing during this pandemic, I suspect you and your families are taking note of what is most important to you. Now more than ever your home is the base for the way your family lives and works. Interior design is so important not only to the beauty of a space but for your mental state and keeping spirits high. This is a great time to reflect on how interior design impacts your life. Know that SDG is keeping up with the latest design trends in our new normal. My passion and mantra have always focused on transforming spaces to be more useful and to meet the needs of my clients for the long term while beautifying and adorning them in the process.
Keeping up with SDG
At SDG we are catching up on our continuing education requirements. As a registered interior designer, I am required to complete 12 hours of education. The industry is doing a great job publishing online webinars and planning video meetings through GoToMeeting, Zoom, and other platforms. Some of my classes have been on New Trends in Luxury Kitchens, Understanding of Acoustical Treatments, Gourmet Outdoor Kitchens, and Wellbeing and Design. Who knew interior design could be so technical. I just LOVE it!
In my volunteer work as Chapter President of the National Kitchen and Bath Association, we have planned a virtual “Mimosas with Monogram” for our newest members. Monogram’s chef is sending out a recipe that participating NKBA members can make in advance. We will be able to eat, drink, and be merry while we learn about product design. Next week we are participating in a virtual scavenger hunt. My team is highly creative!
On the home front, my husband talks on the phone incessantly (partly his nature but required for work). My high school son is keeping busy in his bedroom, but for me, our small temporary apartment just doesn’t fit the bill. I feel blessed to have an office to go to where I can stay isolated and accept deliveries. This really helps break up the day plus makes for a HAPPY marriage!
The science behind interior design reports that Sensory Overload leads to Stress, Procrastination, and weight gain. Keep your homes clutter free and organized and you can survive almost anything!
Stay Healthy and Happy,
