My First Decorating Job: Working Around Existing Pieces + Choosing a Living Room Rug

I want to talk to you about a very common decorating dilemma:  Decorating around existing pieces that we want to keep.

Add Decorator to the Resume? My First Decorating Job!

I know.  I can’t believe it either.  I am taking on a decorating job. I’ve been asked a few times if I’d be willing to help people decorate, and I’m always happy to offer some advice, throw out a suggestion, or share a paint color, but I always end up saying no. Even though I […]

I started thinking about (and taking pictures […]
