Long distance relationships can be a doozy but working with these clients in Texas was a dream come true. Last spring, we first met with Client TX at The Mill during their visit to Mississippi. They had just moved to Lubbock, TX after a long stent (20+ yrs) of living outside the US and were in the market for a new home. Shortly after our initial consultation, they closed on a home and I was jetset to Lubbock.
What made this project so unique was that even though this couple was fresh into retirement, they were starting this journey with an absolute clean slate. Having devoted their lives to mission work, they were always on the move so owning a home was a new stage in life for them. Usually when working with clients, whether they know it or not, they have some idea or vision of what they are wanting us to achieve in their home. That was one of the most exciting aspects of this project. This couple’s focus has never been on their home but always on improving the lives of others. So, there were no Pinterest boards or magazine clippings. Our first meetings were solely based on establishing what they wanted out of their home and helping them discover their personal style (and of course, meshing the couple’s preferences together).
After several months and a few minor renovations later, we were pretty excited to install Client TX’s new home.
