As we wrap up the year, I find myself reflecting on just how grateful I am to all of our amazing clients, vendors, and team members, and I want to express my heartfelt thanks. 2014 was an eventful year that saw many memorable changes and beginnings.
In January, we took the first steps to creating Design Pulp, a brand new blog that would allow us to explore the outer reaches of design and our passion for travel, art, and inspiration.
We hired Danielle Cornely in March, and she is truly a rock star (inside and out). Her enthusiasm, creative organization, and positivity are a daily inspiration. She’s also a talented photographer!
Two large renovation projects began in April, and both were finished just in time for the holidays. We developed incredible relationships with the clients, builders, and craftsmen from these jobs as we navigated construction of new kitchens, baths, and second floors.
In May, we landed an awesome retail project, Splash of Olive. It was a joy to bring the clients’ dream to life in a beautiful Decatur space.
Thanks to our incredible design director, Elisabeth Paulson, I was able to take a much needed vacation in July. Knowing that we can all travel and enjoy time off because we have a quality team is such a relief. It’s hard to find words to express how much I value everything that Elisabeth brings to Balance Design, so I was more than happy to return the favor when she went to France in August. It’s no surprise that she had a wonderful time (you can read more about it here on Design Pulp).
In October, we got to implement several large projects that we started at the beginning of the summer. From emerald green sofas to large modern art, they came together through hard work and dedication to make our clients’ homes a reflection of their personalities.
I am so happy to be able to do what I do with the help of truly gifted people with big hearts, great ideas, and amazing work ethic. Looking forward to 2015 and all it will bring!
From all of us at Balance Design and Design Pulp, thank you.
