First things first, you must be asking yourself, what on earth is “DaFAQ”?? Well, here is a short version of a long story so bear with me as I attempt to explain. Do you remember the Youtube video of the news caster who inhales a bug and exclaims, in the best way ever, “Wha-Da-Fuq was Dat??”. If you do, we should definitely be friends. If you don’t, we should still be friends, but do yourself a favor and google it immediately. Literally, the way this guy flips out is not only epic, it makes me laugh my arse off every single time I watch it!! Fun Fact about me, the way to my heart is humor, and anything that makes me laugh that hard, and sticks in my head for this long, deserves to be paid homage to somehow in some way. SO, now that I have rambled on about a viral Youtube newscaster for a hot minute, lets cut to the chase shall we? The R-rated version of the term above “DaFAQ” is meant to be read as “What-Da-f*%k?”! The PG-rated version is simply “The Frequently Asked Questions”. This week, we’re diving into all the questions I’ve been asked about “All Sorts Of”. The who’s, the what’s, the where’s, the when’s and the why’s?! So without further ado, let’s jump right on in to all the sorts of things you guys want to know about “All Sorts Of”. If I left something out, please leave me a comment below and we will get back to you with some answers! xoxo Amber
This baby is my brand new BLOG!! We’re out with the old and in with the new. Think of it as reinventing the old blog and still including the same great topics, but with waaaay more content and waaaay more in depth detail on all sorts of things. It’s going to be a bigger better version of anything I have been able to achieve alone in the past. Yes, that’s right, in order to make it bigger and better, I’ve expanded my team over here to help me create content. These incredibly cool ladies will be out in the world doing so much research to bring you the latest and greatest. The topics will range from not only all things interior design, but also look out for “City Guides,” Designer Spotlights, Meet the Makers, and maybe my fave category “Boss Files,” in which we will be interviewing other entrepreneurs! So, for a big change you’ll be hearing from quite a few other people, much of whom are cooler than I could ever be. Of course I will be chiming in, and will have a dedicated “Ask Amber” category.
There will be a huge focus on design. And I promise to you all (see, I even put it in writing) that we’ll be going back to the basics and cover literally, all the design-related things. We’ll be showing you more of the design process on our projects and all “Before and After” and project reveals will now live here. We’ll be addressing all your design and decor questions, help you source things to shop and touch on design tips and tricks that I’ve had up my sleeve!!
We’re also dipping our toe into uncharted waters a bit and expanding into a broader lifestyle category where we’ll be talking about entertaining, recipes, health, wellness, beauty, travel, city guides, shopping guides and community. Like I mentioned above, we have an interview series where we chat with our favorite entrepreneurs, designers and makers that inspire us and wow us on a daily basis.
So, YES, it’s a huge topic expansion. Y’all have been asking me about all of these things for years and years — and I’m finally giving in!! And I’m pretty freaking excited that it’s all happening.
Because we’ll be talking about “ALL SORTS OF” things. Yep, that’s quite literally how my brain works.
You guys know I’m a pretty open book, and try to always be real honest with you, so here goes… I have been given some pretty remarkable opportunities, and my interior design business has grown like crazy. When I first started my biz, I would trade my design time for the ability to use clients photos in my portfolio, and to help build my social media. As I have gotten to a level in my career, where some (not all) of my clientele are not always interested in the social media side of me, and aren’t too keen on my blasting their homes on social media. This just means, I have less frequent photoshoots and reveals of design projects. Not to mention, I take on tons of projects that will last months, if not years to build, so pumping out home tour after home tour is just not feasible anymore. Luckily, one of my other huge passions, aside from designing, and running our SHOPPE, is blogging and giving you guys a view into my world. I like to share tips and ideas, and I want to engage my people!! I have really always wanted to have a space where I can answer ALL your questions ALL the time, and with my focus on growth, I have struggled to do so. Until now, my resources were limited and there just were not enough hours in the day for little ‘ol me to do it all. So like I said, I’ve grown my team to help to get you all the answers to all the questions you’ve ever dreamed of — and starting this fresh new site was exactly how I wanted to do it!
It sure don’t! This right here is it! My Amber Interiors website with all my design work will still be there, it will be more focused on my work, press, and for clients trying to work with us.
100% YES! Please comment below on anything you want me and my team to cover. We are all ears and open to suggestions.
