Break out the bubbly! It's our 1st Birthday!


Time definitely is a funny thing! Some days, it feels like we've been doing this for ever and other days, like we launched "DeBoe Studio Interiors" just yesterday.

Despite my having unofficially been consulting since selling my last store in 2013, today marks ONE YEAR to the day since launching our residential services.

A lot has certainly happened over the year. A lot has stayed the same and a lot more has changed. The biggest evolution to our business is still up our sleeves but we'd love to share some highlights from the past year.

{Before doing so, I'd like to take a moment to say my heart goes out to everyone living in London. I woke to the news of yet another terrorist attack there and it broke my heart and caused me so much concern.}

The Year Ahead


Before we recap the best of our first year, we want to once again say THANK YOU to everyone who filled out our Questionnaire last week. {We'll be keeping it open just through the weekend if you care to fill it out.}

As you know, we'll be continuing our regular design services  but also a new category of Mindful Modern Living products and services as well! We asked YOU what you wanted and needed and YOU are helping to shape these exciting new products. 

E-Books, Webinars and Workshops are all in the works and we are very excited about this new chapter. We look forward to connecting with more of you over the course of the year to come! Again, thank you for all of your support! In lieu of another video, I'll just say, thank you for your help, I'll be offering a really useful new tools to you all soon. In celebration of both that and our birthday, the first of which are FREE!


On Tuesday, I shared a FREE MINI WORKBOOK about the Five Elements. Well today, I've got one more Free workbook for you!  Both can be download below:

  • Learn about the FIVE ELEMENTS here. {PDF DOWNLOAD}
  • Sneak Peek into Yin + Yang + Energy Flow known as Ch'i here. {PDF DOWNLOAD}

Now that we've taken a moment to look to the present and future, we also wanted to share some of the BEST of our past year. I hope you enjoy the stroll down memory lane as much as I did!

Our Top Instagram Posts of our First Year

Our Top Blog Posts of the Year 

Well, this one was very nearly a tie, so I'll list the top two! First up, COUNTER CULTURE was the top post:

The backsplash tile post was a close second.


We aren't too surprised by these results as we know a lot of you had kitchen reno's on the mind this year!

And that is another exciting evolution of our business this year. A few months into offering our residential design services, we also rolled out our renovation services and have helped clients to:

  • Completely rethink their kitchens, changing the footprint and floor plan as well as the counters and cupboards. 
  • Expand master bathrooms
  • Add master bathrooms where there weren't any before
  • Add on a mudroom
  • Re-imagine the exterior front porch
  • Re-imagine and design an exterior back patio retreat
  • Design a new garage
  • Reimagine a new kitchen and family room 
  • and more!

Speaking of renovations, we haven't had any of them photographed yet and in fact only one is even completed! BUT! We'll have one photographed to share soon! Promise!

MVP Service

One of our most popular services is our E-DESIGN service. Over the past year we designed foyers, kitchens, bedrooms and lots of living rooms! We designed rooms in upstate New York, New York City, Ellicotville New York (hello, NY thanks for the support!), Connecticut, and all over Northeast Ohio. Here are a few of our favorite mock-ups from just a few of our E-Design clients:

Well, it's been a busy year and so much fun to stroll through it with you! It just made me so excited for all the new stuff I plan to share in the coming year.  Also! we've got a comments section now, please leave a message if you have any comments or questions! We'd love to hear from you!

Thank you again! Your support is always so very appreciated!

My best,
