sektion launch

Along with Kim, our Sektion sales leader, and Erin, our Visual Merchandising planner, we created a beautiful department that kitchen dreams are made of.  Here we are below sitting on the famous concrete Klippan sofa.

While there, I collaborated with Common Store Planning to create the layout of each kitchen in our store. When I came back home, I had about 5 weeks to and create all of the IKEA roomsetting documentation, as well as all of the official installation drawings and contract documents for city permitting.

My mother and I spent Thanksgiving with my sister in O'Fallon Illinois which is just minutes outside of St. Louis, Missouri. It snowed the day before Thanksgiving, which was surprisingly wonderful. 

While we were there, I helped my sister create her first table setting (which is special because she's not usually into that sort of thing, but you know that's my jam). For the centerpiece I just picked some tree branches out of her backyard. 

We also helped her set up her first wine bar (which has grown to include a bar cart and wine fridge since our last visit - busy girl!)

PS, can we wallow in the beauty of her door knobs for a second? Th…
