While I’m on my "inspiration kick", I thought I’d share with you a glimpse of this project I have had the pleasure to be a part of. About a month ago, I did something I often do when I want to target a new neighborhood for potential business. On a sunny afternoon, I walked door to door and left my over-sized postcard in their door. (note to anyone who wants to try this form of marketing… it is illegal to leave such materials in a mailbox, so place it elsewhere).
Here is the front side of my postcard.
And here is the back side. I can use it as a mailer, or when dropping off in person, at homes, I can write something in the blank space… such as "Get your home ready for the Holidays!" I get all of my postcards and business cards from Vista Print, on line.
I always enjoy this little activity, because you I get to leisurely stroll around some very nice neighborhoods. Sometimes I get no results, but other times I do get one or two clients out of this. It really only takes one new client to make this more than worthwhile.
Anyway, on this particular day, as soon as I returned home… I got a phone call! This lovely woman called to tell me she was just looking for someone like me to help her with this "Van Gogh Bedroom" she was recreating in her home. She has been working on this room, engaging several different artisans to help her with the elements in this room, for the past 3 years. I am only going to post 2 pictures, because I know she wants to have this room photographed and submitted to our local media soon and I don’t want to spoil that. When this room is unveiled for all to see, I will post more about this.
This is the painting of Van Gogh’s bedroom that the room is based on.
I think this bed that was commissioned by a furniture maker in Maine, is the best part of the room!
More to come when the room is complete and unveiled!
I am off to visit a friend in New Jersey for the weekend. Hope everyone has a great weekend. And of course… Go Red Sox! 😉
