Under design: Contemporary Meets Mediteranean all under Screen
Exterior Decorating.com Outdoor Design Project by Kim Levell
This isn’t exactly how it’s going to look although it will be ten times cooler! So far I have completed demo on entire back yard. We have permits to move forward and should be building at full speed by next week. Oh wait, that’s Thanksgiving! Argh…..”half steam ahead!”
HARBOR VIEW HOUSE BEFORES
Harbor View House: This client wanted a bug and leaf free environment having lived under two grand oaks for the last ten years. When I stepped on the scene they were already planning to build a screen enclosure. It’s a big step for clients who really do like to keep it natural. They enlisted my help to create a warm inviting space that they could entertain and still feel like they were in a luxury atmosphere. The challenge then becomes creating a cool creative space that doesn’t feel boxed in. I’ll be using reflective light on cut metal screens to create beautiful mood lighting. Oh and I’m super excited about the fire place! This job should take a little bit so stay tuned for updates…
For the love of it!
I think blogging for me has actually been the hardest part of my entry into television more than anything else. It always happens the same way. I psyche myself to work on social media. I type for hours making 10 blogs to run consecutively and then bupkis, nadda, zip. You won’t hear a word from me for weeks.
I started asking myself why is this so darn difficult? Why do I dread this part of the process? Quite honestly I simply don’t enjoy coming up with copious amounts of content. Which is why I do what I do. Otherwise I suppose I would be a blog writer.
So hear is what I proposed to myself. As an exterior designer I pour my heart and soul into every job that best suits my spirit and those of the people I am creating for. Why not tell people why your job gives you such joy. Write a blog about how you completely surprise people with how absolutely comfortable and happy they are in the exterior space that you have created for them. That subcategory is called Inspiration and from time to time I hope I inspire you to get out outside and get closer to nature!
