I am excited to share a few things with you! This also probably applies to other business owners too! So tag a friend to tag a friend to tag a friend!

We’ve all been there…you’re leaving a new business meeting with a potential client and just have this weird feeling that something’s not quite right. Trust your instincts – if you got negative vibes, you’re probably right about them! The best thing you can do as a creative entrepreneur, especially as an interior designer, is value your vision and services. Sometimes, you simply need to turn down business for the sake of your peace of mind. We asked #IvyDesigners to provide the most telling red flags they come across that help them decide to graciously pass on a client. Check them out in the #IvyMagazine [link in bio🙏]. #maketimefordesign
Here's our second tree for our '12 trees of Christmas'. This is Rachael's favourite 'No needles, easy to put away after the festive season (roll it up) and use it again next year. I like that the image is a digital picture of a real tree. It'd be fun to have presents underneath to give the illusion of a 3D tree. Best for contemporary homes and when decor is uncluttered and walls are plain in soft grey hues.' So, could you replace your traditional tree with this alternative?
