A Day in My High-Heeled Shoes

By 09/19/2009January 26th, 201717 Comments

Head on over to High-Heeled Foot in the Door where I’m the featured blogger in Camila’s “In her Shoes” post today!

I had 3 consultations that day.  One at 9:30 am to finalize a garage door colour, another at 10:45 am to help an interior designer with the colours she had specified for a renovation she was working on; and the last one at 1:45 pm to discuss what shade of white to paint the kitchen cabinets and whether the tile flooring should be replaced (among other decisions to be made)!  Click here to read the entire post!
I love Camila’s blog (isn’t her header adorable?), and I was thrilled to be included with a long list of prestigious bloggers and designers!

One last little thing, the shoes I’m wearing at the end.  Cute but not the ones I spent the day in, they just looked the best for the picture 🙂

    Great to see experts hiring experts. I learned this from my clients.

    I can design landscapes but it was no help when inheriting a baby grand piano.

    Hired a client, an interior decorator, and the piano is perfectly positioned in the same spot 12 years later.

    I cringe to think how many times I would have moved it without her help.

    Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
