People Fall in Love. Get engaged. Sell a home. Parent a 5 Year Old Son. Expanded a Business. Plan a Wedding. Become a Future Aunt. Move to a New Home. Get Married...in New York City. And prepare for the arrival of Baby Piccirilli, Coming July 2016!
I'm back. And back as a Barrow. I'm adjusting but loving the name change! When Josh and I went to City Hall in New York City, to get our marriage license, I remember thinking this is a big deal! It's not like changing a paint color or a tile backsplash. This was for real. And forever. After the license was signed (and the shock settled) I was proud to take his name. My husband makes this southern, independent, and hardheaded woman a better person. He truly is my better half...
Mollie and her husband Nick, along with Millie, will welcome baby Lena in July. This is their first baby and it has been so much
fun watching Mollie experience pregnancy and all the little things that come with it! Babies are such as precious gift and I'm so thankful for another child to grow up in a business where kids come first. As you all know, Oliver has always been my first priority along with his wellbeing and happiness. I can't wait to watch our swag kiddos grow up and be lifelong friends!
In addition to our personal life, SWAG is on a design high that I could only dream of 5 years ago when I envisioned the success we're experiencing today. Home Staging has turned the Birmingham market around and we've encouraged other accessory arranging, art hanging, fabric moving stagers to follow their dreams. On the design side, new construction is on the rise. In January 2006 when I returned to Birmingham, from Manhattan, it was a booming residential market. Since then I've ridden the real estate roller coaster and I'm proud to say I've adjusted with the market and survived.
This blog is going to be our daily and design diary. Mollie and I decided years ago that work is suppose to be fun. We have surrounded ourselves with unbelievable clients...Our homebuyers are full of energy, we partner with excited Realtors that are motivated to sell, and we service builders that are proud to have us on their team.
Get ready swaggers, as we backtrack to 2015 and share the excitement 2016 has to bring! We're going to make you laugh, cry, and redecorate your space...all in one day. #swagdesignstudio
