_Dear Clients, Suppliers and Friends, As we draw to the close of 2011, we extend our grateful thanks to you for your support throughout the year.
It has been enjoyable to reflect on the interesting projects and wonderful people we have connected with during the year, and we would like to share some of these stories with you;
We remember the client who came to us with some original 1950's vintage sofa's of her mother's, and how we had the privilege of lovingly reupholstering them, allowing our client to honour her mother, while enjoying the look and feel of some pretty awesome 'Frank Sinatra' style pieces which will last for a long time to come! (see 'Palliser Home' in the portfolio section)
Then there was the owner of a dance studio who needed some speedy design and construction in order to expand her studio to increase her Fall intake for classes, and how we were able to be a part of the design and construction team which helped her achieve her goal. An Art Gallery then approached us to help them create conceptual design and illustration for some serious fundraising purposes.
Both of these projects came to us via residential clients, which is why we find this business so interesting - There is always something new and unique around the next corner, and so many engaging people to connect with.
Speaking of engaging people, we were delighted to work with the owners of Interiors to Inspire - Calgary-based decorative painting specialists - who very generously created and donated a stunning hand painted translucent window panel for our charity project at Calgary's historic Lougheed House. We decorated a room for their 'Christmas All Through the House' event with the generous assistance of many vendors and suppliers. (see 'study' under Lougheed House in the portfolio section of our website)
Our clients needs and challenges keep us busy creating new ideas and approaches; For 2012 we are busy preparing to present a selection of eco-conscious furniture and lighting based on the demand of some eco-sensitive projects. Naturally, it made sense to offer interior furnishings which compliment homes that are built with an environmental sensitivity.
Thank you again for your support to Kevin Gray Interiors Inc during this past year! We would not be here without you, and we thank you for your trust in sharing your design challenges with us, and allowing us to assist you in fulfilling your dreams.
This Christmas and New Year we hope you will enjoy the blessings from above as we reflect on the abundance of what we have been so graciously given.
Sincerely, Kevin Gray
