Annette Joseph is a stylist who pulled off what sounds like a nearly impossible job - turning a raw industrial space into a family home (for Gwyneth Paltrow and her kids to use while she was in Nashville) in only 10 days. We're not talking about just "warming up" a space - this was a full scale reno, including a new kitchen and bath.
It is all chronicled in today's GOOP newsletter, from the initial planning meeting between Annette and Gwyneth, through the week of tearouts, construction, drywall, painting, tiling, electrical and various other installs. Annette says that at one point, there were 30 workers doing their thing on the project simultaneously. In between, lots of shopping was getting done.
With 3 days left and the construction work complete, Annette and her team started bringing in the furniture, getting art installed and dressing the home.
Aside from being an incredible amount of work (about a three month job, usually) accomplished in a very short time, it was done on a real-life budget (prices and sources are included in the story) and the results are lovely. Livable, beautiful and quite posh!
