Hi friends! Hope you’re having a happy summer! It’s getting extremely hot here in Oklahoma. So we are swimming a lot and generally having a great time with friends and family.
Change is a part of life, right? Well, without being aware of it, this blog has changed. In a good way, I hope! I’m pretty much finished with the major remodel projects around my house. I’m still working clients’ homes (which is my love). The more I work on other projects, the more I come to understand all of the nuances of design. A few years back, I was a teacher. I come from a family of teachers, so naturally I want to teach and explain why I design the way I do. I even like to explain other great designers rooms. I like to dissect rooms to understand why it makes you feel a certain way. Design, is feeling and function to me. Every little detail contributes to the overall look of a room.
This blog has been a blessing in my life. I wouldn’t have a design business without it. I think it makes people feel comfortable with me. They know what to expect when they ask me to help them in their homes. In future posts, I will keep doing what I’ve been doing lately: posting pictures and explaining what makes each room is so special. I might also throw my opinion in about certain styles. There’s not really a style of design that I don’t like. Just as every personality is different, so should every home be different. Your home is a refection of you!
So I will leave you with something that inspires me today. I’m obsessed with wallpaper. You have to have a bold personality for many wallpapers. This is one I’ve been dreaming about for months. I love this because it could go so many directions: bohemian, formal, or even nursery.
