Moving Back ‘Home’

I’ve been away from this blog for a while! I have been so lucky to have been extremely successful with re-dew interiors in Denver. So busy that I haven’t been able to pay much attention to the blog. I am truly blessed for that!

We’ve had a lot going on in our family over the past few months. Life changes, career changes, changes of heart. Change always spurs the conversation, “what if?” Like, if we could live anywhere, where would we live? That question is a big one in our household. After a lot of thought we have decided to move back to the First Coast of Florida. I can’t really explain it, but it’s always felt like home (even though I’m from New York!). Maybe it’s because I met my husband there, or maybe it’s because my first daughter was born there….or maybe it’s because it just feels right in my heart. It’s hard to say – I just know it’s home.

Neptune Beach, Florida

That being said, we are selling our beloved home here in Denver. It’s a bittersweet feeling for me. This house was a labor of love, and where my business reached heights I never thought it would!

I want to thank Zachary Cornwell for taking such lovely photos of our home. Joe Phillips of Synergy Real Estate is marketing our home (if you, or anyone you know may be interested in our home, click on Joe’s name!). I have had the pleasure of working side by side with Joe over the past couple years staging his listings and helping his new construction buyers create the home of their dreams. It has been a truly wonderful experience, and I will miss working with him.

So, now what? Well, we were lucky enough to find our own little piece of heaven just two blocks away from the ocean in the sleepy little town of Neptune Beach. We are currently working with architect Bob Esposito of Esposito Design to draw plans for our little beach cottage. Here’s a little sneak peek of what we’re working on:

I am super excited about the opportunity to build a new home, and bring my business to the First Coast. I’ve always had a love for coastal design, and I’m really looking forward to building new relationships and bringing my ideas to a whole new group of clients. I will be blogging our progress on this new house right here too! Stay tuned….

One last thing. Just because I may not be living in your city, I can still help you out with your home! I am glad to be a part of the Laurel and Wolf Designer Network. If you’d like to work with me from afar, just click here to get started: Laurel and Wolf Private Design Projects

Love this Farmhouse Cottage!

Welcome to my blog!

Welcome! I’m April Carney – a wife, a mom, and a great lover of interior design.  After years of being asked by friends to help me decorate their homes, I have finally decided it’s time – and now that I actually have the time (after having two kids) to have my own interior decorating business. I cannot tell you how excited I am to begin this journey and bring all of my ideas, research and thoughts into other peoples homes to make their space beautiful, functional, and inviting.

Here you will find me commenting about the latest design trends that intrigue me, current projects I am working on, or just what I happen to be thinking about at the time!  I hope you will continue to follow me as this new chapter in my life unfolds. I welcome your comments and suggestions anytime!

Happy decorating in 2014!

April
