I'M BACK!

It's been a while since my last post - a long while actually. As you can see below, I've been a little busy growing, delivering, and taking care of a baby. A very precious, healthy, baby girl that we feel extremely grateful for.


My husband and I at the hospital right after we had our third baby girl - I look tired because I was! (and still am)


my girls meeting their sister for the first time
Having baby girl #3 has been wonderful, challenging, and just plain tiring, but overall we are happy and feeling lucky.

-----------------------------

Before I had the baby, I finished up another investor home - the La Har project. Here are some snapshots...

KITCHEN
brass hardware, white subway backsplash, and carrara marble countertops
GUEST BATH
white hex tile, carrara marble countertops, medicine cabinets, and gray/green subway tile shower

DINING/KITCHEN AREA

This home has a lot of charm. A loft bedroom, a beautiful yard, and cottage-feel that makes it very homey and inviting. It's still for sale! And located in a fun neighborhood between Sugarhouse and Millcreek (for those who are familiar with Salt Lake City). Message me if you are looking for a home and are interested! We are also working on a couple other homes in the Avenues, and one in the Foothill bench area - can't wait to show you the progress on these great homes. 

--------------------------

I am starting to work a little bit, and so far, so good. Before I had the baby I wrapped up most of my projects and didn't take on any new business. With this new year, and a fresh start, I'm thinking about approaching my business differently this year. I'm not sure what exactly it will look like, but I do know the goal is to achieve higher levels of efficiency, professionalism, and continue to learn more about design and hone my skills. There is a lot I need to think about and act on with my business, and with the sleepless nights, some days it feels daunting, but other days it's exactly what I need. I know I will figure it out and White + Gold Design is going to have a great year this year.

All in due time. But for right now, I'm going to snuggle this little one and take it day by day...

    2. And hey Ashley! Sorry, didn't realize it was you. If this would be for your family, it's probably too small, but maybe not! Might be worth a look...it's a super cute house. I personally love it and the neighbors have been really friendly...

  10. I just love her eyes. So precious, congratulations. Your work is beautiful. I have an investor home in a great neighborhood in Orem. I would love to talk to you about how you figure out how much money to put into it. This is a home I inherited from my Mom, so I paid off my two siblings with a 2/3 of the current value loan on it. I would love to talk to you if you have the energy.
