So, it’s official. It may not be New Year’s Day, but for me it’s like a new year is commencing.
My resolutions? They’re all about this website, this project. It’s a new start, a new chapter unfolding, the adventure of entrepreneurship. It’s exciting, exhilarating and a bit scary all at the same time. But contrary to all the resolutions I’ve never kept (we’re all the same, right?), I plan to take my idea as far as it goes.
So to make it a reality, I’ve worked twice as hard this year. Not only on this website, but also by setting up my showroom. But first, I had to find the right location…
When you’re as stubborn as I am, finding the perfect location was not an easy affair. In short, I was looking for an inspiring space, full of good vibrations, creativity and beauty… In other words, I spent several weeks sifting through the classified ads without realising that my dream place was right under my nose. A little house on the edge of the lake, incredibly charming with old wooden floors, a small fireplace for keeping warm on winter days and a garden for sipping cocktails in the summer. Did I totally fall head over heels for it? I signed quicker than you can say my name!
Once the location was settled, the more creative and fun part could start – planning the layout. I can’t tell you just how much I loved drafting the plans, searching for inspiration (thank you, Pinterest), imagining each room in its every detail. After much hesitation, I finally found the spirit and ambiance I was looking for. Now all I had to do was go bargain hunting, find the furniture and I’d be ready. Said like that, it may sound easy but this was just the beginning…
I look forward to welcoming my clients and friends to my dainty dolls’ house. As an appetiser, here are a few photos of my little showroom. Don’t hesitate to write to me if you have any ideas!
