Creative Friend


Lucy, me, Suzanne
University of Georgia-circa 1995

Those days we were all juggling studies, football games, frat parties, and post-graduate plans.  I headed to graduate school and my friend Lucy to NYC for an exciting job at Sotheby's.  I would come home exhausted from a day spent dissecting a cadaver to muffled messages on my answering machine...

"hey, Mick Jagger is in my office right now"

-beep-
"JFK Jr. was here today and we toootally made eye contact"
-click-



These days, life is a little different...but no less exciting.  Rather than celebrities...Lucy is juggling two young sons, a beautiful home and a growing interior design firm in Norfolk, Virginia.

You will never find Lucy's home the same way you left it.  A recent visit was no exception...I arrived to find her waterfront home had undergone a large scale renovation/addition with fresh interiors to go with it.  Still in progress, Lucy describes her home as "evolving."

A gifted artist as well, her work is elegantly displayed throughout her home.  Abstract, textured and colorful.

Lucy travels to the NYC Design Center twice a year, always prepared to assist her clients.

Crissy: even her apartment during college was stylish...she had a picnic table as a dining table, it takes talent to make that work ha

Patricia: our maturity level seems to disappear when Lucy and I get together...how high is your tolerance for juvenile humor? Thank goodness for friends that allow you to be silly....and husbands who just ignore it
