It was, by all accounts, also a smashing success.
During install, people were so confused when they walked by my space and saw that it had later been painted white like, "Wait--wasn't this space black before??".
Finding the right art piece for this space--one that had the right look AND wouldn't be too heavy for the walls which was a major concern) was a chore but I found perfection at Beau Holland Studio in a metal, oversized elephant piece. The space was finished with Arbor Vitae trees & planters from a local nursery plus my favorite Kravet Cross stool (in citron velvet, no less!) and sculptural brass wall art from Baker.
