"Speaking!" He said in a cheerful London accent.
"I just read your want-ad.... and not to toot my own horn, but I believe you wrote that ad for me!"
He laughed, we chatted and soon after a new working relationship was born.
It was challenging for myself and my amazing, talented team of carpenters, painters and fellow designer Virginia Maffini as well as for Line and James. But this was an opportunity that led, not only to an awesome transformation, but learning experience and finally what I think will be a very successful and functional space. Now that Virginia and I have cut our teeth, so to speak, on a commercial space, we have decided to create our own sideline of a design business, specializing in staging homes for sale and helping people tailor their homes and businesses in a fresh, modern way.
Line and James took a chance on us, but I believe we lived up to this challenge, we gained invaluable experience and two wonderful new friends. We are so proud of Le Resto and are looking forward to the delicious cuisine and relaxing in what has become a lovely space.
Please check out the before and after pictures on James' website and if you are in ever in Chelsea, your mouth will thank you for stopping by either of these fine establishments!
Le Resto opens it doors Monday August 31st
