Our months here at GHID seem to just fly right on by – and this month has been no different! We’ve traveled, attended various design events, hosted rep meetings, enlisted in a CEU all the while maintaining our workload and managing our projects.
Take a peek at our GHID month in review…
Garrison Hullinger Travels to San Francisco:
Garrison recently traveled down to the Bay Area to speak at an event for both Rejuvenation’s Grand Opening at their Berkeley location, as well as a realtor event Houzz hosted. While there, Garrison also met with a new client who’s building a home in the Portland-Metro area, and supervised an installation for a client we’ve been working with for several months now. Check out a few pictures…
Party at Kush Handmade Rugs:
Alison and I represented GHID at Kush Handmade Rugs, Dangerous Rugs that Won’t Eat Your Pets event this past First Thursday. It was a beautiful evening, a perfect summer night, filled with beautiful rugs and a great presentation from Ryan Higgins and Tamarian. We love Kush and always enjoy their parties!
Client Meetings & Presentations:
During an average month here at GHID, we meet with our clients about two – four times a week, an average of 16 client appointments a month (and this doesn’t include new client calls). Below are a few examples of what we have presented to our clients this past month – CAD drawings, hand-renderings, style sheets and more!
Rejuvenation Warehouse Tour – Portland, Oregon:
Our contact at Rejuvenation, Amy Hekker has been so awesome and generous to GHID, and this past month invited our team to tour Rejuvenation’s Portland warehouse facility. We had such an awesome time looking through all the treasures packed in their sprawling warehouse as well as checking out their organized systems for orders placed and ready to ship. We absolutely adore Rejuvenation and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to peek through so much their history.
Interior Design Photo-Shoots:
Over the past year, GHID has partnered with Blackstone Edge Studios to update and catch up on our portfolio by scheduling a photo-shoot twice a month. It’s been very exciting to see these photos continue to roll in and share them with our clients as well as through our various social media accounts. Be sure to check out our updated portfolio as well as our Houzz account to view these new projects!
This year’s Neocan’t, which happened to be on the rooftop of the DeSoto Building, fell on one of THE hottest days our Portland summer had to offer. However, the heat didn’t get us down. Our team had a fabulous time (as the pictures so plainly display) and saw a bunch of innovative products that we’re excited to source!
GHID takes every opportunity to continue learning about new products, codes and specialized niches by taking advantage of continued education courses or CEUs. This past month Garrison and I attended a CEU on The Green Kitchen, hosted by Standard TV & Appliance at their Beaverton location.
Hood to Coast 2012 – My Shameless Plug:
This past weekend marked the end of an era – I Nicole Copko ran my first running race EVER and couldn’t be more thrilled! Hood to Coast is one of the greatest events Oregon has to offer, and I can’t wait to run again next year. I’ve officially got the H2C bug!
