One person we have yet to introduce in our blog is Susan Snow of Moving Designz. We have known Susan since 2005 when she helped us decorate our cottage on Panmure Island. The work she managed for us was excellent and the result was so impressive that we were included in an article in the first issue of Island Living magazine in 2006.
Since working on our cottage Susan has become a good friend and therefore when we started work on Number One Grafton Street we consulted with her to develop our thoughts on how we wanted the rooms in the house to look. We wanted to create a welcoming and comfortable environment within a heritage building. We were also keen to ensure that we included some antique pieces of furniture but kept the overall appearance quite soothing and uncluttered. This was quite a challenge but with Susan's help we believe we have managed to achieve our aim.
Due to PEI having a relatively limited number of suppliers of suitable materials and furniture we called on Susan's experience to help us source items for the Bed and Breakfast.
Fortunately as well as her interior design consultancy Susan also runs a beautiful store in Summerside, PEI which stocks the most stylish range of items on the Island. Details on her store can be found at her website http://www.movingdesignz.com/
She is also an excellent blogger and regularly includes beautiful images of her project work and the island. It is well worth a visit to http://movingdesignz.blogspot.com/
Over the period of the renovations Susan has been including blogs to record some of the details of the work on Number One Grafton Street. Look for the following blogs:
