What a week it has been! After spending last week in London, I returned home to a huge pile of work and hit the ground running. I’ve been going non-stop all week. I really think I am going to have to get an assistant soon, but I’ll be honest with you, the idea scares. I need to find someone trustworthy and hard-working who is passionate about design to assist me with my design work, some clerical work, as well as helping out on the blog side. I am getting closer and closer to taking the plunge and looking for someone, but it seems so daunting! I am so thankful to have the amazing projects that I do, but there just aren’t enough hours in the day to do everything that needs to be done—design work, client meetings, product sourcing, clerical work and managing orders, editorial planning, researching and writing blog posts, managing blog/brand partnerships and ad campaigns, speaking engagements—the list goes on! I’m either going to have to find a way to clone myself or bite the bullet and look for a fabulous assistant. What are your thoughts on hiring help? I could certainly use some advice!
Having said all of that, all I want to do this weekend is take a long, relaxing bath with the book I’ve been trying to get through for the past four months, but haven’t had the time to read. It probably won’t happen, but a girl can dream! If I could choose any bathroom to linger in, it would be this marble-swathed dream created by Sara Ruffin Costello. The use of bookended slabs is so decadent! It really looks as if the room and tub were carved out of the walls and floors, doesn’t it? The classic fittings and fixtures look fabulous juxtaposed against the modern skylight. The garden stool provides just the right amount of color in this stunning bathroom while the Bergere chair adds the perfect amount of femininity in this bachelor’s bathroom. Isn’t it a gorgeous space?
Have a wonderful weekend! Again, any advice you might have about hiring an assistant would be greatly appreciated. Merci beaucoup!
