One of our services here at Abode is to buy and design for clients. This client had just purchased a cottage on the river and needed someone to completely furnish it! I was the lucky person they chose! Take a look below at how it turned out.
I had so much fun doing this project and even MORE fun revealing it to the new owners! This is one of my favorite things to do here at the store. The process goes a little like this. Client calls and I look at space. Find inspiration. Buy. Decorate. I supplied everything from the sofa to the sheets and pillows on the bed. They got to walk in with a bag and be moved in, and I got to pretend like I was Joanna Gaines for the day. :) They were delighted with how it turned out which made me happiest. If you need help, even if its just with one room, stop by the store, drop a comment, message us on FB however... just please reach out! We would love to hear from you!
If you aren't familiar with Abode, let me give you some quick introductions. I am Cortney Derrow, I'm 31 years old and I own the store. I am married to this amazing human named Casey and have a 2 year old daughter named Charlie and am due in June with baby number 2.
These are the girls! Erin is on the left and Car is in the middle. Erin and I are both due in June. She can literally make any space look amazing. Car can sell anyone anything. They are both amazing friends and I couldn't be happier that they agreed to do this journey with me.
We hiked, we laughed, we ate and had the best time. I left Joshua Tree feeling inspired and ready for spring more then ever! I'm so glad I have these opportunities to travel because it really makes you realize how much is out there. I love Defiance, but it's really easy to fall into a routine and never leave your comfort zone. Something I don't ever want to do in my life/profession. Take risks, use different colors and textures! Leave the state and get some fresh air in your lungs. Eat something weird off of an unfamiliar menu. Go somewhere you've never gone before! It is good for your soul, trust me.
P.S. I linked my Desert Style pinterest board I came up with after coming home and our Airbnb and anything I could that we loved! Enjoy :)
I'm Cortney! I have a small new/used/vintage home decor and furniture store! We loved taking spaces and transforming them into what dreams are made of. This is where I hope to leave you with inspiration, love & something that drives you to make the changes needed to love your space!
