Decorating this room was a joy. I could do what I wanted with NO CLIENTS!!!! (not that clients aren't wonderful, sometimes, now and then, on a good day, when the moon is in the seventh house) This was another ebay adventure, hunting for the great deals, looking for the exact piece, searching for the unexpected. I taught myself how to make a dust ruffle, and found out that Lowe's sells rugs! Click on the picture of my cottage at the right of this column, and it will take you to my website, then click on the project button, and you will see the whole transformation of this room.

I've been a designer for longer than some of you have been alive. I have now started a new page of my career, closing my firm and designing furniture, as well as writing decorating books. Some of you may be familiar with my work over the years by seeing me in magazines. I tend to think that I'm funny, so please read my postings with a grain of salt thrown in for flavor. My spelling is atrocious, so I am refusing any responsibility for spell check right here and now. I hope anyone reading this will enjoy the pictures, info and humor.
