These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

Hee.

Second time a project of mine has been picked up by the flooring company. I designed the whole room though-- it was a very complex installation in Virginia (yes, THAT one.)


if you want to see the actual page (and the other photos) this is the linky.

:) I was just about to say..."It's the name of the company..." Thank you!

DGD was also published by Globus last year as well, for a different kitchen installation in Washington, DC, which of I have a good before/after photo set here (linky)

Yeah, this one was hard. It was a really complex installation and had several awkward design problems.

That, and this type of look is entirely *not me*. But it's not about me, it's just what the client wants. They have to live with it-- I don't. In the end though, I know theyre very happy, and their kitchen is much more effiecient and fucntional now.

very professional. If I get the money and decide I wanna stay where I am (the latter is as unlikely as the former likely) I'll get you to sort the place out for me

the people In DC waited 14 years to have their kitchen done, and they're really, really happy they did.

Viv - makes it sound like you've had a Dr Who regeneration - 'Stalker Mum to Viv in the gap between series..'

Not really feeling better. I was going to go to the Met today with friends, but I just received a txt message that indicates I should cancel those plans and stay here. :/

Change was subtle D :)

I'm sorry B'elf. Maybe it's for the best and will help you rest a little? I'm staying in because I'm exhausted and I've got work to do. Talking of which, I had better get on with it

BTW, I'll take your word for it Viv

whooo that's a tough call, lady.

Also, Ive finally snapped. Please check the comm. where you proclaimed your love to a fellow aussie.

I will get some before/after shots of this one up. This one is really dramatic in terms of style change, as opposed to contruction, like in DC.

Fantastic design there Av. If I ever have a room that needs a redesign I know who to ask.
