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.
