I should've been a Lucy...

I don't know if you all have noticed, but I tend to vary on the design scale. I love it all, I  love vintage, modern, and definitely industrial. Mid-century, however, holds a special place in my heart. It may be the 2 million hours of I Love Lucy I watched growing up, and still watch every time I get sick. There's no doubt about it, I should have been born in the '50s. I love the fashion, the movies, and the lifestyle (I'm not going to lie, I wouldn't mind staying home and being a homemaker, while my hubby goes out and provides for the family....oh wait I basically do that now). And now, those retro/mid-century styles are definitely coming back...
Mid century design is an architectural, interior product that generally describes the mid-20th century developments in design and urban development from roughly 1933-1965...and it's definitely making a come back in a big way. Yesterday morning I met with a good friend/realtor/previous client who has a client of her own who renovates 1950's bungalows in Lawrence, Ks and may need help staging the homes for sale...Yeah, my heart just stopped...If you know me, you know that staging is where my heart lies, it is what I want to do someday. It's not that I don't like working one-on-one with my very small group of awesome clients, I love it in fact, but there is a lot more opportunity in the staging world. There's more freedom and definitely a more flexible plan when it comes to staging. In any case, I'm super excited about this opportunity, and thankful that they are willing to work around my strict schedule so that I can be even just a small part of this. And while, it wont be just me (I will be assisting a more experienced home-stager and her small team...thank goodness) I may just pee my pants....or throw up...In any case, I'll keep you guys updated along the way..not on my bodily functions but on this project...and you're welcome for using the words "bodily function" in this post...Wish me luck!
P.S. If you're interested in design services or staging consultations (and you should be, I'm really good :)), you can go here for more information.
