This weeks featured ladies is one of my favorite bloggers, Kirsten from 6th Street Design School. We were both lucky enough to attend Nate Day and I was super bummed that I didn’t get to met her in person that day! Don’t fret though we are both heading to High Point next week so we can finally meet in person. I really enjoyed getting a glimpse into her daily life and I hope you enjoy it as well. Kirsten is talented, loves color & pattern, enjoys a good bargain and does everything with a smile on her face.
First of all I want to preface this day by saying that seriously every day is different for me. Some days are spent out and about and other days are spent at home working on blogging and projects via the internet. No day is the same and try as I may I’ve never been able to nail down a good schedule. I do the best I can with each day to make it productive and balance time between clients and my son.
7:00 Wake up! My son Jett wakes up every morning at 7. Without fail. I get him up, get him fed and them sit him down in front of his favorite cartoon while I get ready for the day. From 7-11 we are getting ready for the day, cleaning up the house, reading blogs and responding to emails. At 12 Jett is dropped off at my neighbors house and my intern arrives. Time to get to work!
12:00 We hop in the car and drive off to a client appointment. Our appointment is at 1. We get there a little early so we decide to drop into Down East and see what they have available right now.
My intern Lauren is the best shopping partner. Down East has some fantastic stuff.
I stop for a minute to drool over this faux bamboo dresser. I dream of it in my bedroom. But the price tag is steep and we have to make it over to our appointment! No time to gawk.
1:00We arrive at my cute client’s house. She is always easy to work with. Today we are going over rug options for her living room. I’ve done up a mock-up of the rug options on her floor plan. This way we are able to see exactly how the rugs will look.
I’ve also got a great selection of fabrics to show her.
2:00 The appointment ends and now Lauren and I are off to Home Goods to look for lamps for a client. We find a great selection of art and lamps for our client. Success!
3:00 We head back. I get home in time to see a package on my front door. It’s the fabric I’ve chosen for my bedroom settee. Fabric is my very favorite thing to get in the mail and I’m SO excited! It looks great.
First I drop off some fabric at my seamstress for a client. We are going to be making pillows. The fabric is beautiful and I can’t wait to see the finished product. After I’ve dropped off the fabric I run over to get Jett’s hair cut.
There were a few tears but for the most part it was a success!
My favorite thing to do is just sit at my desk in my office and get work done.
7:00 Bachelor Finale!!! I go over to my friend’s house to watch it. We had a great time and it was so nice to relax and hang out with friends after a busy day!
What a fun day! She really is great at striking a good balance between family & work. I love how she fits so much into her days. Sometimes I feel like I never step away from the computer. Kirsten totally inspired me to mix up my routine a bit and start the search for a local intern!
