WREC Women’s Real Estate Club

Bonus Space

In preparation for introducing the idea behind WREC, I visited a home today.  I’m not sure how many blog posts I will write about it (maybe two or three total).  This post is about what I found that the agent did not include with the listing.

Let’s start by putting in a blue stone patio in front of the “two car detached garage”

Lap tops and cell phones have given us the ability to work wherever we are in the world.  FemShui Design is a “brand” I created based on wanting to bring feminity into a woman’s workspace, whether at home or at the office.

Examples of FemShui Design can be found at two blog entries – Of Course the Answer is Two Boars Heads and A DPhiE Prequel.  Those posts are about work we did for a client – the IHQ of Delta Phi Epsilon Sorority.  During the summer I started working on the office of the new CFO.  August at Innovasion was Elvis Appreciation Month and he went with me everywhere.

Angel wanted her office to be blue, cream and brown and we went with Sherwin William’s Atmospheric for the wall color.  Looks like a robin’s egg blue to me.

Enough talking, let’s just look at some images for using robin’s egg blue in a workspace.  Pretty and somewhat formal.b3759c0c37419e2c4b282d2ede97c1e9

And isn’t it great that, if we want, we can work from any room in the house?
