Motivational Monday – Creating your Home

“life isn’t about finding yourself it is about creating yourself!” George Bernard Shaw

Are you always trying to find something better or are you doing something to create it?

When trying to create a new idea for a room, having it look exactly like others is never a good thing because you will always be comparing and never be happy. It should be finding what you like and then creating your space into something that suits your lifestyle, it then becomes your own and not a copy.

    Dear Karen:

    I’m new to the job and new to this industry so I’m also brand new to your blog and your business. But I look forward to meeting you. I love the thought of working from the context of rhythm and color. I think it should be the mantra for designers to replace form follows function. Looking forward to meeting you and learning from you. Hope we can be of some assistance for your business and your clients. Best wishes, Winston
