All the cool people I know started blogging about a decade ago, so I'm a bit behind on the whole concept.
But now that I have my new gig here as a designer-for-hire, hopefully I can share some fun tidbits with everyone about the world of interior design. Some say that interior design must be so Fabulous! Like with a capital "F". Sure, it can be that, sometimes. Other times, you just want the sofa to fit through the door. Over the last dozen years I have seen so many amazing homes, and it always astounds me how much work really goes into creating these environments. Emails, phonecalls, paperwork, budgets, contracts, lead times, discontinued items, etc. So glamorous! Not!
With this blog I hope to share some things I've learned over the years, for example:
- the best vendors in the Bay Area
- where to spend, where to skimp
- how to work with subcontractors
- common mistakes to avoid
- how to avoid trends but stay cool and timeless
- where to find unique items locally
Join me, as we explore the crazy world of interiors!
