Sometimes there are weeks that put you over the edge… ..,and we have yet another one to come. WARNING:Blue men in shirts are everywhere. Our office and home is being moved out… …our belongings are now on a truck half way across the states. Thank God for a glass of wine and my brother andMAYHEM.
IT’S REALLY HAPPENING.
Full filling a long time dream. Will it work out or not? We sure do plan on it!
Call me crazy, but the hunt is on for a DEPRESSING house far away from home.
Our house has not sold yet, nor have we even nailed down a place to rent in our new destination. This is a stressful time in our lives but we’re aiming to make it a great memory and try to have fun with (therefore this video diary!)
Thank You for all your comments and advice. WE LOVE AND APPRECIATE THEM MORE THAN YOU EVER IMAGINE!!
And thank You to talented young Luke for editing this piece.

I hope you have all had a good holiday, or perhaps still have a good holiday. Every summer we go home to Sweden and work from over here for a few weeks.
Don’t you love the internet so you can almost work from anywhere?
The beauty of this country borders almost on ridiculous sometimes. Here are some instagram pictures (JILLHSORENSEN@INSTAGRAM) , not that Sweden needs pretty photo filters! Inside my Week – beautiful Sweden
Here’s peak at a week of design.

Today we were doing this…Inside my week
We’re getting closer…. This has been a crazy busy time preparing our house for sale. When you get ready to move, it’s amazing how much stuff you realize you have that you don’t really need? How did that happen? I’ve spent days organizing, clearing things out and fixing things that had been put off forEPS. 3 – Move.Like.You – The Pod!
As some of you know I’m moving. And we are moving FAR away. We are relocating this summer to the other side of this great big country. We can’t take all of our own furniture with us, nor are we taking the design firm inventory with us either. So I’m posting a super sale on this blog, that will go on for the next 6 weeks.
So please share this post with friends or on your blog if you have one. You will be able to get stuff new or vintage for an EXCELLENT DEAL.
Items are either brand new, my own pieces, or simply the inventory you get left with as a designer sometimes between, clients, shoots etc. This post will be updated so keep checking in. If you want to buy something simply e-mail [email protected] and speak to my lovely assistant FLAVIA and get a quote to ship the item to your place. If you live in the DC area and proximity you can also come pick it up. You can pay via Paypal and credit card.Moving and Inventory Sale!!
Here are some pictures inside my last week via Instagram(@jillhsorensen.) I’m posting pictures there daily so I will always remember this crazy period of change! Cherry blossoms by our entrance in full bloom! Not sure if spring is inspiring me, but the new line of pillows, carpets and draperies I’m coming out with are allInside my week
I promised myself I would do video blogs, and when I see it I regret it because I realize how completely stressed out I am!! So apologies for my outfit and for rushing through info but it seems with everything on my plate currently, it’s unavoidable. At least I’m not in sweat pants! Okay offEPISODE # 2 Move.Like.You – One King's Lane
The next few months will bring about a lot of change. So we thought we would have some fun and share this in a video diary, instead of just stressing out about it. We want to document it and hopefully what we learn can be helpful to other people. Thought it would be a greatEPISODE # 1 – Move.Like.You
Some years ago (too many!) I got married and moved down to DC. I was working as a model in NYC so we hired a designer to renovate an old home we bought. Except…within a month I found myself doing a lot of the work, and was quickly offered a job by the designer we’d hired. To make a long, complicated story short – I ended up designing this big, old Virginia home on my own, having no previous experience. Instead of relaxing on our honeymoon I obsessively read a book on how to start a design business. And Marmalade Interiors was born.
Fast forward a bunch of years. Luke was born, we divorced, I moved out, but we lived a few minutes apart. Sadly last Christmas Luke’s dad passed away from brain cancer (some of you might have read it). After sitting empty for a year – tomorrow this pretty old house will have a new owner. They will move in to the house just the way I designed it years ago.GOODBYE dear old House.
