Welcome to my site! I truly hope you’ll enjoy your visit…I will try my level best to help you find what you’re looking for, and have a little fun, too.
Making Your Space
Unless you plan on staying your entire life in a home the size of a postage stamp, the task of making your house a home is never complete. Wallpaper will come in and out of favor (is it in now?), popular paint colors will change (that’s why I own a silver car), and new and better styles will come on the scene. And when that happens, you begin to question why the hell you decided on that paisley floral as your inspiration piece. Guess what? I’m pushin’ 50 and I’ve decided that MY SPACE IS MY SPACE. And if I want to hang a watercolor rendering of Venice right next to my son’s pencil sketch of a 70s Ford Pinto, I’m gonna do it. So there. 🙂 Are you with me?!
Cynical Creatives, Unite!
All rants aside, there are abundant sources on the internet for design, color, accessorizing, gardening…you name it, you can find it. My objective is to help you zero in on what you need, when you need it, shoot a tranquilizer in it, throw it in your flatbed truck and bring it home. And when you need a bit of what I call, well, “cynical creativity” I’ll share some, too.
As an entrepreneur and real estate investor, we’ve been moving around a bit…so it has only been lately that we have decided to settle in and actually stay awhile in our current abode. So…this means we can embark on this journey together to make our spaces home…on a budget! Because no one wants to have to donate a kidney to buy that $2500 rug that the cat will be yarfing a hairball on. They just don’t. Well, I just don’t.
Berries in a Basket
I hope that tranquilizer comment earlier didn’t offend…it was only a shopping metaphor. I guess I could have used more benign language like “gathering berries in a basket” or something like that…Naah. Not the same effect.
At any rate, I hope this will be a refuge for you in the jungle of box stores, discount sites, foo foo design opinion pages, etc. and you can read, enjoy and contribute to your heart’s content. If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
