So many firsts with this project… & all equally terrifying. I’ll start with saying how intimidated I was. In fact, I almost didn’t take it on because I was that scared. This is a gorgeous new construction home which means there’s no real construction for me to do. I'm used to making families go 'omg wow' on reveal day because they see I removed a wall or demo'd & rebuilt their kitchen. This house was perfect (just like the adorable Fertig family residing in it). How does one improve upon perfection? I realized immediately after stepping foot in here that their reaction will be 100% dependent upon just the decorating.Can I truly transform a space just with decor, paint & some wood wall accents? Not to mention, because I'm still green at this, I've never done a nursery or child's bedroom, so those were another fear factor for me. And I don't have kids yet so will I even know how to make these functional but still whimsical? Despite all this fear-space (fearful headspace), I said yes. I believed in my ability to work that much harder until I figured out how to deliver this dream for them. Then I went home and poured my heart & soul into every inch of these spaces. They wanted me to warm up their super modern home with farmhouse touches & blend the two styles, so that's just what I did. #modernfarmhouse I could NOT have pulled this install off in 72 hours without my shiplap master @jcdelgado2020 , @chaosncream ‘s painting, my operations queen @monica_bustos17 & all the beautiful hearts who showed up to help clean, paint, make Panera & Target runs at all hours @miiss.yolii @lama.leonard @kaymarryshow @_ashley.oneill_ 💕. I love & appreciate you all beyond words. Finally, thank you @derekfertig & @the_silvs for trusting me blindly from day one. The courage it takes to give a total stranger off Instagram your NEW home AND your savings is almost incomprehensible…& that’s why I take this so seriously. You get everything I have to give. Can’t wait for phases 2 & 3, so many more surprises!! I LOVE YOU GUYS SO DANG MUCH!!!!
