Tailored Living + Meredith Ehler = Your Dream Closet! | Meredith Ehler | Closet Organizer | Sterling, Virginia

Every woman dreams about the perfect closet!  One where you feel like you are shopping in your favorite boutique yet everything is free and in your size!  As a closet-organizer, I know the impact that a well designed and well organized closet has on a client’s life.  Each day just starts out better, as you are able to choose and accessorize the perfect outfit in a well-lit and glamorous space.  When I organize closets for my clients we can make huge improvements by just editing and re-organizing the contents.  But sometimes a closet needs more TLC thank I can give it.  Sometimes a closet needs to be re-modeled.

I recently met a wonderful woman, Martha Dahlman, and a local business event.  When she told me where she worked I said that I had to come and visit her at work. She took me on a tour of the Tailored Living showroom. As a closet organizer I was like a kid in a candy store!  As a woman I was like a kid in a candy store!  I didn’t want to leave.  I would have been happy just curling up near the granite-covered closet island with the build in ironing board and staying there for hours.

The first thing that caught my eye was the array of finishes and moldings available to customize your dream closet.  The second thing that caught my eye were the lighted clothing racks.  I am dying for them! Have you ever been in your own closet trying searching for a particular black sweater in a sea of black sweaters?  No more struggling to find anything when you have racks with lighting in them.  When you turn them on, they softly light the tops of all of your clothing hung on the hangers.  Then the lights automatically turn off for you.  Dreamy!

Tailored Living offers a myriad of designs, finishes and services for almost every room in your house.  I even got an eye-full of the possible makeovers for my garage and kitchen.  I was inspired for sure!  I recently had a home-decor client of mine ask if I knew of anyone that designs custom Hide-a-beds, or Murphy bed.  Well, I do now. Yes, Tailored Living can do that too.

Clearly I was in heaven.  But don’t take my word for it.  Learn more at Tailored Living on Facebook, Tailored Living on-line, or stop in for a visit.  If you are in the DC area they are conveniently located near the Reston Town Center. Tell them Meredith sent you!  And if you decide to upgrade your closet you may just get my organizing services thrown in for free!  Ask Martha for details.

See you in your new closet!

5 Tips for Great Summer Makeup | Meredith Ehler | Makeup Artist | Loudoun County, VA

Summer brings so many wonderful things like lazy days at the beach, canoe rides on the Potomac River, picnics with friends, and in my case, freckles. As great as summer is, nothing is worse than trying to keep your makeup in place a hot and humid day.

When I lived in the South Carolina I experienced humidity that literally felt like you had walked into a steam room. Living in Loudoun County, Virginia is not much better. Washington, D.C. apparently was build on a swamp…thanks founding fathers! Living in these parts of the country means asking makeup to defy the elements and stay put when it should instead roll right off our face. Let’s not even mention what happens to my hair – not a pretty site!

Here is a link to an article I wrote for Loudoun County’s Times Newspapers. It gives you 5 tips to keep your makeup looking great in the summer heat!
