Hey everyone!!!  I know that it has been an insanely long time since I wrote, but I had a baby and life kind of got crazy! I figured that since I had a baby, my first blog after returning should be about NURSERIES. [caption id="attachment_22422" align="alignright" width="300"]...

I recently met with a client who went through an absolute nightmare with her contractor ... he didn't install anything correctly, he installed items after she expressly told him not to, and generally destroyed her condo.  She was supposed to move in a year ago, and she is at this point starting over.

Many of us have a guest room in our home, but sadly it is a place that we don't want anyone seeing, let alone having a guest stay in!
These rooms tend to get the scraps of our furniture, art, and bedding, making it feel more like a storage space than a temporary home for our friends and family.

Okay, so you know that saying, "do as I say, not as I do?"  Well, I seem to be the queen of that!   As much as I love great design, and having a space look absolutely beautiful and put together, it is sometimes hard to actually get everything together in order to get it done in my own home (not to mention the time it takes to convince my husband that it is the right design choice for our place).

For years I've been trying to get my clients to use wallpaper, and every time I suggest it, I'm forced to have the same discussion with them.  They are always nervous about it being too busy, and they don't know if it would work in their space.  I don't know if it's the stigma from the wallpaper that was used in the 70's, or if they are nervous about having to take it down later on.  Either way, I'm going  to finally put an end to all of the wallpaper doubters out there!
