My first blog…



To blog or not to blog, that is the question…


To blog it is! A couple of days ago I decided to venture into the exciting world of blogging. Needless to say, it has not been going very well. My first crack at this whole thing started with the topic, ’25 Tips to Successful Interior Design.’ Not even two sentences in, my Mom spaced off and began to snore. What can I say, she was right. It was contrived, ordinary, and BORING. So, here I am, four days later, still staring at the same screen. Although not successful at first, I must trek on. So, I say to you fellow reader, it is your lucky day! You have the distinct honor of being apart of my first blog. Topic … undecided. This may be a bit of a bumpy ride, but here we go…


I think the easiest place for me to start is from the beginning. Back to the basics if you will. What was it that first attracted me to Interior Design? The idea that one room can be transformed into so many different styles? The creative, imaginative and artistic freedom it gives? The idea that what is in my head has the possibility to be turned into reality? I guess it’s a little bit of it all. Design has such an influence on our everyday lives and in a weird way, I feel honored to be a part of that, no matter how small or large the contribution. It’s like having a super power. The ability to infuse life into a room, transform personality into space and boldly splash color where few have splashed before! (Either I am giving the field way to much credit or I have been watching a little too much of ‘The Big Bang Theory’.) Nevertheless, you get my point.


Thought bubble…Mesa Verde Tan! We’ll talk more about it in my next blog. One clue, it is not something that you get on vacation…


So please stay with me through this journey and together we will explore what it means to create, experiment, innovate…DESIGN! Until then, I wish you happy designing!


Let me help you get your ‘think’ on!
