I could never understand why anyone would hire an interior designer. It always seemed to be that when you finally make the decision to buy your home, that a lot of the anticipation has nothing to do with the purchase. When I bought my home, my excitement was how to furnish the home. I needed to find the perfect window treatments. I was kind of bummed because some of my outer walls didn’t have windows, but that was overcome when I discovered wall treatments. I was able to make a wall look like a window with the addition of drapery. I couldn’t wait to find the perfect furniture. I have a very eclectic style when it comes to what I like. I can’t pinpoint any one specific style. I was talking to the salesman in the furniture store and I was trying to explain how I like bold colors, and yet I like to throw in the sands and beiges to keep it from looking clownish. I told him that I’m not into modern, but I like the comfortable look, but I like clean. He smiled at me and he started walking. He told me the just the thing for me. I was blown away when he told me it was called Eclectic Desert. I didn’t care what he called it, I just called it home. I lived in the midwest, and I have a home that is supposed to look like a dwelling from the desert. Some people just look at me with skepticism, but I am in love with my furnishing, and I did it my way.
