Aaaah, something to celebrate...
My little blog here has turned one year old!
I’m so proud I’ve made it this far and been able to reach so many design lovers out there. And I thank each and every one of you for visiting and sharing my love for the beauty and business of interior design. Really, your support means the world to me.

I was in Denver last weekend and stayed at the most wonderful hotel in a historic property, The Crawford Hotel, located downtown in Union Station.
It reminded me of my stay at Hotel Emma in San Antonio. I love staying at hotels that are thoughtfully designed, have a sense of place and a story behind them.

I have had clients where style and the ultimate goal or look of the project weren't quite defined before we signed the contract.
Or maybe we all thought we understood the ultimate goal, but really, we weren't quite on the same page about what the client wanted for an end result.

First of all, let me just say that I’m hardly an expert at managing finances. :-)
However, when Amanda Gates, Linda Holt and I talked recently in this teleconference about some ways to invest in your home with a lump sum of money that might befall one with a tax refund, I couldn’t help but dream up a few ideas of my own.

These kitchen backsplash dilemmas are just getting too good not to share. I do not make these up…..I swear!
I received these two uploads this week on one of my old blogposts about kitchen backsplashes. I couldn’t help but plunge in and answer, mainly because I love resharing these problems so others can benefit from the information.
Just when I think I’ve seen it all…..there’s another tiny deviation of where to end a kitchen backsplash or how to detail it.
