Home means different things to different people.
But mostly, at the beginning and the end of each day, it’s home base…even if it happens to be a hotel room.
It can also be our private oasis.
It’s a matter of well being, well lived…
The best home design creates rooms that speak, in a beautifully personal way, to those who live in them.
I’ve been happily helping Design Civilians* (could this be you?) to help themselves to beautiful homes for over 20 years.
For roughly a decade, I’ve also been writing about interior design from the viewpoint of clear reasons, not half baked old conventions. Logic is the best basis for all the decisions needed to create your perfect space. One that specifically suits who you are and how you want to live your best life.
There is magic in the logic of design.
I love writing about about my favorite topic for your entertainment. Hopefully, you will also find these guides useful to help you, help yourself to a beautiful home too.
Here are a few good places to start:
- How To Make Your Tired Home Design Look Great
- How To Avoid Over-Done But Under-Effective Decorating.
- Living Room Living: Do You Really Live In Yours?
- How To Choose Terrific Paint Colors You Will Love.
*Design Civilians are those appreciate good design as spectators, not facilitators….unless a wonderful library of home design reference articles appears at just the right time….
**Several of the articles presented here are based on earlier published work and are referenced accordingly.
“Pretty In Pink”…The room, I meant. It was the attic of a “renovated-for-showcase” townhouse, upper east side, Manhattan. The skylight flooded the room with afternoon sun. It was like standing in Matisse’s dreams.
