Mother’s Day 2011… May 3, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — sarah bernardy-broman @ 12:55 pm

What will you be doing this Mother’s Day May 8, 2011? I will be running the Race for the Cure at the MOA for my 3rd year in a row. What better way is there to celebrate Mothers/women then to help us fight for our future health without Breast Cancer? Join me and thousands of others as we race to fight this horrible and curable disease.

“You will find beauty and peace with the power of many.” That’s how I felt when I ran this race for the first time 3 years ago, so inspiring. It’s unbelievable the number of people brought together to celebrate their love for a mother, sister, brother, or friend that may have battled and either lost or survived this disease.

Happy Mother’s Day!

I get goosebumps when I see really good design. In a market that is saturated with products of various degrees in both style and quality it’s great when you see a new spin or twist to something old. Here’s to those butterflies in the stomach that make you want to create something better for yourself. 

These are my February finds, inspiring and unique products that I just have to share with you. Let me light the way…

It’s that time of year again where we spend more time being thankful for all we have been blessed with. We are merrier and yet we are busier. And so I wanted to say thank you to all of my wonderful family and friends who support me throughout the year. This includes not only my children and husband, parents, in-laws, and siblings, but the people who help me daily in making my clients happy. Without my contractors, workrooms, and suppliers to make my creations come to life, my designs would only be visions. It is our combined knowledge and experience which creates the strong team that supports my work and the beautiful projects that my clients allow me to create for them. Thank you clients for trusting us with your home. I am truly blessed to have all of you! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Interior Design isn’t about making a room pretty, it’s about expressing the personality of the client who lives there through thoughtful detail and planning.

View the link that I’ve attached below to get some design tips on how you can maximize your current space or any future ones you have the luxury to plan.
