If you’re the type to coo and swoon over ridiculously cute pictures of other people’s newborn babies, brace yourself. The SHADES family just welcomed its newest member. And she’s very, very small. On the 13th of March, in the wee hours of the morning (3:15am to be precise) our very own Maddy, together with her partner Andrew, welcomed little Ms. Charli Parker Smoel into the world.
Which means, of course, that Maddy just celebrated her first official Mother’s Day! (Maddy and Andrew already have a Golden Retriever, so it’s a bit of a motherly grey area, but still…) On behalf of the SHADES team, our suppliers, staff, and all the customers who miss Maddy like crazy, we’d like to extend a huge congratulations to the whole Smoel clan.
Maddy has actually been with SHADES for over nine years now. She’s our hard-working soft furnishings and design expert, and it’s been hard to imagine the SHADES showroom without her. Maddy, from all of us here at SHADES, enjoy your maternity leave. Soak up every last moment. And pro tip: it’s never too early to teach them the value of quality window furnishings.
