Hello to Another Year

Updates, Reflections and Resolutions

January 25, 2010

I'm excited to welcome the new year as it marks the official one-year anniversary for Laura Weimer Interior Design LLC. Last year started slow but ended in a hustle with the decoration of Tipp City's Willowtree Inn for the Holiday Homes Tour. As if that wasn't enough, the sets for Grace Community Church's annual Heart of the Holidays Dessert Theater were built during the same time! You can check out photos for both events on the home page.

Aidan 5
The past few months I've had the privilege working as an illustrator for the cutting edge web series "Aidan 5." The sets are hand drawn to create a truly unique look with an enticing plot to boot! Here's an excerpt from the website:

"Produced locally in the heart of Columbus, Ohio and based on the award-winning 48-hr film festival short, Aidan 5 is a no-budget sci-fi web series made solely with an all-volunteer cast and crew under pressured time restrictions. The goal: to achieve an impossible vision with creativity and determination as the only resources. Set in a futuristic city, Aidan 5 chronicles the journey of one detective who must unravel the mystery behind the serial killings of his own clones."

Knoop House
Another exciting upcoming project is the Dayton Society of Interior Designers 2010 show house taking place in the renowned Knoop House just outside of Troy. The show house will be open to the public this fall from September 25 to October 10. The house and acreage was recently donated to the Miami County Parks District and serves as their main offices. The preview party took place January 21 where designers, park district employees, benefactors, and friends joined to celebrate the designers' plans for each of the rooms. Currently, the designs are still on display so head over there and check them out! Laura Weimer Interior Design LLC was selected to design a front porch. The plans will be posted shortly!

Home and Garden Show
My latest endeavors have been to prepare for Dayton's Home and Garden show taking place at the Convention Center February 26-28. Each designer will have their own space in addition to many of Dayton's home remodelers, builders, landscapers, and more. DSID (Dayton Society of Interior Designers) is proud to be part of this event and will have a who-dun-it "Clue" theme. My vote goes to Mrs. Peacock in the library with the rope.

Wishing you a fantastic new year!
