Years ago, I had a design business (in addition to teaching) that I named House Calls.
It’s premise was simple.
My clients were often friends or someone who called me because of a recommendation.
*As my sorority sister and dear friend in college used to say, ‘everyone is doing the best they can’.
*Design choices are easier for someone who is what my mother, daughters, and I have always called ‘a house person’.
For example, I love houses in all shapes and sizes. I love your home, and I haven’t ever seen it. I love thinking about houses and imagining what I would do to that house. I love the potential that exists in all houses.
You are a house person too.
*Houses have bones and recognizing those bones and how to enhance them and fit your needs is really all design is.
Is there enough space on a bedroom’s headboard wall for side tables to live- with electrical outlets and without blocking windows?
We are all designers. You are a designer.
Our home has a long living room.
