So, April 1st has come and gone. I am now 30 (and liking the way it feels quite nicely). But unfortunately we were unable to also celebrate the opening of the emilie inc. studio yesterday. Due to some unforeseen requests in the inspection earlier this week, we have to wait a little bit and hopefully I'll be able to occupy the space by the end of next week (fingers crossed) if all goes well.
I did go over to 227 Congress today, tho, to check on the progress. The space looks great! I am lucky to have a landlord who allowed my input when making several decisions, including the kitchen area. Instead of a typical kitchen layout, I created a clean, modern bar-like space with chocolate brown cabinets and a white counter top. There is no fridge (it will be tucked away in a back closet), dishwasher or oven- I don't need that. I wanted a cool area for entertaining that flows with the rest of the interior design we are after. I definitely think we achieved that!
Next step: painting!
I also met with Rob Verrier of Curvwork today who is working on my signage. It was so cool to see how things are coming along. I'll have the emilie inc. circle mounted to the brick on the front of the building (it is black in this print-out, but the type will be reversed when completed), as well as the interior stairway, the door into my space, and on a wall within my studio. After all the big purchases I have made to transform this space into my own, seeing the actual signs are what makes it feel very real to me.

Can't wait for next week!
