The always swirling world of design is exciting… but sometimes overwhelming. When it come to decorating your home the endless options can discourage you from ever getting started. As an Interior Designer we typically don’t start with a completely blank space. Our homes have layers of things we’ve collected that reflect a history, in the heirlooms we’ve acquired, of the pictures and art on our walls, of souvenirs of special vacations, of color and fabrics that make us happy. Your home is a personal expression of comfort. It is the beautiful backdrop for entertaining, holidays and special occasions. The trick is to know when to edit(throw out or donate) our possessions and when they can be recovered or repurposed to enjoy for many more years. I’ll share what I love and what I’ve learned. Posts will be as diverse as the world of design is-some time practical some times outrageous. our posts will be insight to trends, products, materials, DIYs and tips to pull it all together. My hope is that this blog inspires you to think outside the box!
