Helping you DESIGN the Life of Your Dreams DeAnnaRadaj...Helping You Design the Life of Your Dreams From the Outside In
Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you'll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you'll find that you have more of it.
The above picture is one I took a few years ago as I walked & explored the Uptown area of Charlotte as I was making my decision on what city to move to. This is part of the Greenway at a beautiful park located right in the middle of downtown. Quotes from poets, little bistros & wonderful seating areas offer a gorgeous respite from the crazy that living in an urban area can bring. I visit this area each time I venture uptown.
I realized it has been a long while since I wrote so wanted to write a quick note as to what's been going on....not much sums it up. Finishing up the projects on current home & was ready to get it on the market....however, I couldn't find anything to move TO. You see, Charlotte is in the midst of a huge housing SHORTAGE. Properties are being sold w/in days of being put on market...& anything that hasn't sold asap is either priced too high, has had very poor remodeling work done (future DeAnna On Design podcast) or is so far gone it takes someone like me to see the potential in it. Que current situation....I have found THE house, however, it's a short sale. Being self-employed has many upsides, however, one of the big DOWN-sides is that you aren't a great loan qualifier. (Purchasing a short sale requires you have the funds in your account at the time of the offer NOT at time of closing like in a traditional sale). So, I'm in midst of trying to raise/manifest required funds to submit an offer & for required remodeling work as it requires a complete gut & rehab....but it will be so worth it!! So, fingers crossed!!

New DeAnna On Design episodes.....
Empty Nest Design...this is a HOT topic right now & will also be addressed in an upcoming issue of Real Life magazine!
What Does An Interior Designer Really Do?....this is a bit of a vent that is the result of a recent "discussion" w/an individual who stated that "no degree is needed" & that "anybody can do it...all you have to do is install high end fixtures & you're done". DeAnna addressed this. Hint: not true.
In honor of all the "about to be" Empty Nesters...
I'm offering an Empty Nester consultation....a brand new consultation that you can choose either a 3hr web consultation OR an email consultation w/30 min web follow-up for only $750! (this is a savings of over $600). Consultation will address clutter-busting, a Feng Shui analysis of the room to create a space that will support the NEW FUNCTION of the space, color suggestions & any design advice on an as need basis. This offer will be good until Aug 31, 2014, 11:59p edt. Contact me here to schedule.
Until next time....happy designing! DeAnna
