I know what its like…getting a fresh start. In 2011 I had open heart surgery. Some factors I knew, others were a complete surprise. But the day I opened my eyes, I made a commitment to myself that I would appreciate each new day that I had in front of me.
For that reason, I LOVE January. It’s quiet. It’s calm. All the hustle and bustle is gone. And more then anything we all make resolutions for the New Year. Discover something fresh. Get rid of the old and try something new. As part of my healing, I discovered that I love writing and chatting. So I decided to start a blog, about what I do, Interior Design, but with a little twist and a whole lot of me thrown in. Going forward I will post about design topics that matter to me, I’m a visual person too, so lots of great inspiring images by my Design partner, Linda Smith of Blulens Design.
So to that, I challenge you to get rid of the cell shades, donate the couch, embrace the color grey (and not Fifty Shades, unless you want to of course). Try a new design style, industrial chic or mid-century modern? And filter out a third of your knick-knacks. You will not believe how refreshed you feel. Linda and I regularly pilfer each others houses…”that would look great at my client’s house!” “Well…OK”, just a good excuse to clear out the old! So Happy 2013…looking forward to the future and lots of good design to share with you!
