When we design for a client, not only do we design for who they are and how they live but more importantly who they want to be and how they want to live. Designers often refer to the design process like a movie playing inside the mind. Scenes and characters taking you to a different time and place.

Fortunately...and sometimes unfortunately...the movie never stops for me and it certainly never stops for Nancy. This weekend, for one of my projects, I am taken back to a time of glamour and romance. Enjoy!
