The Color of Home: The Show

Call me crazy... but I saw this raw space in January 2018 and thought it would make the perfect spot for an art show. My husband and I spent our weekends cleaning every inch of this space. At one point, Curtis even had a vacuum cleaner in the rafters.

 

 

Then, was the real transformation moment... I had it painted all white. I was absolutely terrified when I pulled up to see how it looked. Was it going to be a total mess or would it look incredible?

It looked incredible! I was SCREAMING with excitement.

The art was painted, so now it was time to get everything up on the walls! Now, are any of you stubborn? Because I am! I told my mom a million times I didn't need her help setting up though she continued to offer. Of course, I called her a week before the show and begged her to get her butt down to Charleston! As an extrovert, I not only needed the extra set of hands, I needed someone to talk my ideas out with. Plus, she is an amazing interior designer, so she has a great eye for this kind of thing. We make a good team! *Cue embarrassing photos of us getting sh*t done!*
  

Now for the pretty photos by Jesse Volk!

Once everything was hung, Celadon came in and completed my vision. They warmed the space up with incredible chandeliers, jute and turkish rugs, plants, sofas, and more. Seriously, I was blown away with all they did! 

 
   

I can't believe how many people came through those doors. Old friends, new friends, neighbors, artists I admire, and my sweet family. I was thrilled to get to chat with everyone and couldn't have imagined a better evening. 

 

Thank you to Farrow and Ball for the signature paint colors that graced the back wall.

To Basic Projects for letting me use their space.

To Celadon for the incredible transformation.

AND to you, for following along, for coming, for buying, and for celebrating this dream come true!
