New Business Cards!

I had such a fun day yesterday working on my new business - making vision boards, updating floor plans and meeting with my amazing clients!

To add to the fun I'm excited to present to you....

My business cards for the Adi Edlen Design Studio!



There they are, front and back in all their skinny little glory! I decided to go with a unique size for my business cards to make them memorable. I made them at Zazzle.com and can't wait for them to arrive!

So what do you think?! Have you been craving some new business cards? You know... for being the CEO of your own awesomeness... :)

Looking for some Outdoor Furniture?

I've been working on a few things lately for my client and tonight it was outdoor furniture! If you're looking for some good sets, check out my Polyvore account to see the presentations I've made for her.

Here's an example of my fave from Macy's:

Simple and classic, I love the clean lines and contrast of the crisp white with the preppy navy fabric.

I think the best way to go is mid-range price for a good quality product. It'll last and most importantly, won't look cheap!

So what do you think, are you in the market for some outdoor fun?

My Interior Design Dream Come True!

I've always had a love for interior design - that's why I started this blog! It's been a dream of mine to become a real-life interior designer for a while now, but the stars just hadn't aligned for me...

Well thanks to my little itty bitty blog, my big huge dream has come true! I am so excited to announce that I have my very first interior design client!

I've got a lot of work ahead of me - I spent 2 hours today just measuring. I felt like such a professional though, snapping that measuring tape back up to my hip (be careful doing that, my fingers paid the price a few times).

So once I got all that behind me, I got to work figuring out floor plans. My mom showed me this really cool site Urban Barn where you can make floor plans online for free. I might need to poke around a little more to find a more sophisticated site (any suggestions?!) but for now it works just fine.

Check out my first run-through:

I didn't make any labels or add colors - the little tiny thing in the bottom left corner is an easel and the little boxy things on the right are stairs... but pretty fun nonetheless!

I'm excited to get better at my craft - who knew there was an art to measuring or how much fun it would be to move little black and white furniture around a screen!

More details to come on the house and what projects I'll be working on - I'm so so excited!!!
