It seems to be that when I am busiest I get the most new leads and clients contacting me yet when I am sitting on my arse pushing my toes into the sand and wondering where my big next job is going to come from noone is calling my phone then are they? No new emails are landing in my inbox and no contact forms are being sent from my website. It’s like the universe senses when I am in super productive mode and decides to hammer me with more and more work to test me. I see you universe and I raise you! 😉
In the past month while I have been juggling 3 renovations and a styling job I have had no less than 5 potential new clients contact me all with “urgent” requests for quotes. Messages have piled up in the inbox that I only check every few days with desperate pleas of “Please call me back I need your assistance with XYZ” … I feel both happily popular and slightly horrified at the same time as I have no idea how I will time manage myself through this busy little spell.
Ok me aside there are lots of things happening in the design world with the Salone Del Mobile Milano … commonly known as the comparatively boring sounding “Milan furniture fair’ which has just wrapped up and which I stalk every year with the keen attention of a jilted lover looking up their ex on facebook.
With so much on offer in Milan over the week I find it hard to know where to even start as far as covering it goes but you can see an overview by Dezeen here and there are some good short video clips showcasing some of the furniture ranges on James Richardson’s facebook page here.
I am sure that all the big design mags will be doing wrap ups of it later this week so keep an eye on Vogue, Habitus and DQ if you want to see more as they all usually do a good briefing.
My favourite exhibits so far seen are these ones:
Right – enough from me for one day. If you need help with any design projects please form an orderly line just over there in May please … Also try to be organised with your renovations and ask me NOW for work in the coming months, don’t call me the week before your deadlines are upon you because I will laugh AT you not with you.
Happy Sunday to you!
