She Moves

New beginnings....

The room that she called home for most of her childhood will be empty once again.

The college grad is not finished learning her design craft and will be moving on. Great opportunities are here for the taking:

We have spent the better part of this week looking for the perfect pad.........

and found this great studio on South Beach. Art Deco reigns here, and our little princess will be moving on. She can't wait to start school again and can't wait to decorate. I hope that she lets me help. I will fill you in later.....



  1. Oh Janet, what a beautiful place she will be living in... would you like me to come stay for a month or so in her old room, you know, just to keep you company? I would take Murphy for walks! Doggie kisses Murphy! Bisous... Julie Marie

  2. Just a dream to study here and to live in one of those art deco appartments. We went there twice and my daughter (now 15) was so inspired to live in South Beach Miami. Wish your daugther all the luck in the world from me on her new path.

  3. Hi Janet,
    What an exciting time for one of the fufu daughters. That pad looks charming, love the checkerboard floor... ooh the things to do with that place. Can't wait to hear all about it, this moving onto a brand new phase. My how time flies so fast - but know you always make each moment count. I'm with you in spirit if you're feeling a little pang of "empty-nestitis".

  4. Ohhhh I love this post Janet!! What a wonderful apartment!! Your daughter is so lucky to be just starting out in life and on a new adventure! I sometimes wish I could go back in time and start over :) I wish your princess all the success in the world :) And I know she will let you help decorate, you have such a talent for it!

  5. Congrats! to your daughter ... many successes be showered upon her. She will have fun decorating, as you will the 'old' room. TTFN ~Marydon

  6. What a great place, makes you wish to be young again, how exciting for her.

  7. What a cool deco building!
    I'm sure the two of you will have a lot of fun making her new diggs a creative retreat perfect for the next chapter of her life.

  8. Hi Janet what a great place for her to live. Such fun to be starting out with a blank canvas to decorate.

  9. I love your daughter's apartment Janet. I always adore black and white tiles and have them in my house. I hope it's not too difficult a time for you. I would be finding it difficult to let go I'm sure! xx

  10. Hey mom, I am so jealous that your daughter gets to have such a cool place to start off with and you get to help her! This will be so much fun for both of you, such a gorgeous space, she must be so psyched! xo, suzy
