Is the Summer almost over with already? I feel like it was yesterday I was shivering from the winter blues, longing for warm lake days, and here we are with this season coming to a close. This summer Ally Whalen Design really hit our stride with incredible projects that took us all over the country and culminated with a strategic move into a new shop in Davidson, North Carolina (The Elements 4 Life). We even managed to sneak in a few family trips, boating excursions, and checked off a few of our to-do items at home as well (being able to design spaces is an incredible job, however I would venture to say most interior designer’s have a laundry list of things that they never quite get done at their own homes).
Although life hasn’t slowed down, I believe it has become so much sweeter. I’m finding myself surrounded by clients that allow me to fuse my creativity with their sense of style, ultimately culminating in some gorgeous design spaces. Scott and I have also been intentional in carving out more family time, especially with our two beautiful daughters. We both are entrepreneurs and constantly looking to expand our knowledge and areas of expertise, and that is why AWD as well as our family has flourished- we make it a family business. Working together as a team, Scott and I have grown this small little side job of mine into a full-fledged, nationally recognized interior design company, complete with our own line of furniture.
Reflecting on life lately, we are growing in the right direction with supportive friends, family, and clients- I can truly say we are right where we belong. Thanks for such an incredible summer!
