Plaza Tower {first and final look}

  I'M STILL HERE!

I know it's been a while since I've visited the blogging world, but there's been a lot happening at Jennifer Taylor Design.  We recently finished up a great project and I'm excited to share.  These clients called me as they were purchasing a condo in downtown Tallahassee.  They love FSU football and wanted a place to gather, with their entire family, and share their love for the Seminoles.  Not only were we hired to furnish the entire unit, but we had to finish it out.  This included flooring, paint, trim and lighting upgrades.  Cabinets and counters were in and could not be changed.  There was a lot to do and not very much time as October 10th was only a few short months away!  As with any good blog post, let's start with the BEFORES...

Did I mention my clients lived in South Florida?  That meant the entire selection process was done remotely.  After two boxes of samples and many emails and my client's TRUST we had a design plan in place and the work began.

I only had two face-to-face meetings with my Plaza Tower clients.  One when we signed the contract and the second was when they walked into their beautifully furnished home in Tallahassee for the first time.  It was an HGTV moment for sure!  During our initial phone conversation, "mister" client said he wanted old south and quail hunting and "mrs" client said she wanted light and airy.  We succeeded in giving them both what they wanted.

In addition to lots of great projects, we are moving into a real office space in Midtown Tallahassee.  The place needs a lot of work, but I'm up for the challenge.  Can't wait to share more.

Chez Sois {final take}

Almost two years ago, I received this message on Houzz: "Jennifer, I found you on Houzz and like what I see in the photos of your work...I have lots of ideas (on Houzz) about what I'd like to do, but need a good designer with an up-to-date aesthetic to help me expand some ideas and refine others...and just keep me from making those costly mistakes...My style is grounded in traditional, but I've moved away from total traditional to a more European, elegant feel that says "today." I'm single now and want a totally feminine home."

Little did I know what a wonderful and collaborative project this would turn out to be.  I'm always a little nostalgic when a project comes to an end, but this one will always hold a special place in my heart.  Chez Sois was a total renovation and there wasn't a surface we didn't touch.  The result was EXACTLY what my client wanted when she sent that first message to me.  Before you continue, please take a minute to read my first blog post so you can see exactly what we started with.  The transformation is beyond words...
