design collaborations

To be suc­cess­ful as an inte­rior designer, in Con­necti­cut or any­where else, it's crit­i­cal to have a team of trades­men and crafts­men to col­lab­o­rate with and rely on. These are the men and women who sup­port my ideas, respond with enthu­si­asm (usu­ally!) and make won­der­ful things hap­pen for me and my clients.

So nat­u­rally, I turned to Steve Monti at Steve's Fine Wood­work­ing and Con­struc­tion for my lat­est project. My client has very def­i­nite ideas on what he wants, but does change his mind fre­quently — a major design chal­lenge. He has a "hurry up and fin­ish" atti­tude and is impa­tient with delays. And did I men­tion, he's five years old?

Here is the project in early development:

the begin­nings of the land yacht

a very seri­ous client dur­ing the ini­tial inspection

Steve hard at work

fur­ther progress

a hap­pier client as pro­duc­tion continues…

Stay tuned for the final results, com­ing soon.
