"So, how do you work with people long-distance?" I've been asked. Let me tell you the story of working with the lovely and inspiring Annika.
I worked with Annika on creating a vision for her space. She is in Colorado and I'm in Niagara Falls, Canada, so thank goodness for modern technology that made this possible. ;) Annika has been renting and has moved around a LOT in the past year. She'll soon be moving to a place where she knows she'll be for a longer time and she really wants to start bringing more of her personality and style into her space, She also wants to make sure that when she buys things, they really represent HER and will last beyond this particular apartment, but become a foundation on which to build on over time.
On the day of the consultation, we met for about an hour on Skype. Beforehand, she'd filled out my Lifestyle Questionnaire and sent me some beautiful inspiration photos as well as photos and a video of her space. This way, when we got on our call, we were able to get right to the good stuff.
I shared my ideas for her space and we talked more in-depth about things she mentioned on the questionnaire. It was a productive and fun time!
Afterward, I sent her a PDF with notes, resource links and a moodboard.
Here's what Annika wrote about the experience:
"Even filling out the questionnaire to prepare for our consultation helped me get clear on what my problems were, and what I might look to for inspiration. During our consultation, I could tell that Jadyn had really taken the time to prepare and meditate on what it was that I needed or could incorporate into my space. She channels creativity so well, and really knew how to read me. I felt like every suggestion was completely tailored to who I am and couldn't wait to get off the call so that I could go and start using them!
I have gained total clarity on exactly what I need to do, received specific suggestions of places to go and things to use, and above all, feel a lot of passion for this project where I used to feel overwhelmed."
You can find her full testimonial here. I feel so blessed to have been trusted with helping Annika create a vision for her space, it's truly an honour to be a part of creating a home for someone.
