I knew when I was assigned with the scary task of decorating Rachel and Rodger's enormous home that It was not going to be an easy job. There were so many thing that need be completed. Never mind that I had to find all of the of furniture for the home, but we had to move everything from their previous home; every piece of art had to be selected, hung and arranged; every accessory had to be placed and arranged; every square inch cleaned and polished and most of the items were custom-made, so I had not seen them post production and design.
You can see just how little sleep I had that week. I am by nature a perfectionist, so as you might imagine, this job doesn't lend itself well to sleep! LOL
I really wanted to push Rachel and Rodger’s design style. I wanted them to see they could still have a modern and contemporary environment even with the introduction of some traditional pieces. One way I did that was by designing a sofa that had clean modern lines, but by adding the chesterfield style back and cushions, it became a smart blend of the two styles!
Your home should be an extension of you and who you are as a person. If you can come home, and actually feel at home. . .that's fantastic design.
I can’t tell you what it felt like to have Rachel and Rodger come into the house and say they loved it. Rachel is someone whom I deeply respect and to have her say, "This is perfect." Well, who needs sleep? Those words made it all worth it.
You did such a fab job with her home- I adore!!! Where did you find Rachel and Rodger's canopy bed? It's stunning!
You did an amazing job! Congrats! Don't listen to people telling you abandon your dream of becoming a stylist. I'm sure people told Einstein that he was an amazing patent clerk. You have an amazing career ahead of you. Especially if you don't let that snake-in-the-grass Joey get under your skin. The guy is definitely not a talented team player. He's jealous of your innate talent. Shame on Rachel and Rodger for not encouraging better team work. Keep up the great work.
I loved what you did with Rachel and Rodger's house. Mixing styles is how I am redecorating our new house; modern and traditional looks fresh and real. You obviously are a talented decorator and I want to see what you do as a stylist. I want to see more!
How did you get this job? I dont understand why Rachel Zoe would bring you on as a "stylist", when you have no experience as one. No offense, but even you admit you dont now what you are doing. She doesnt have time to hold your hand and guide you through everything. Be her interior designer, but stylist????? Really makes no sense. Sorry, I am sure your a nice person, but thats like a mechanic becoming a make up artist......need I say more???
Jeremiah ...you are adorable and very very talented. The house was amazing. Joey pulled some white shirts and he thinks he's a stylist. He's not all that good with hair either?! Rachel needs a new style and a trim......she is starting to look a little dated! Just saying!
