When I worked in high-end home decor retail it always struck me how worried my clients were about things looking just right. They were so concerned that their houses look "perfect" that they forgot to have fun. They did their research and consulted designers, but the one thing they lacked was passion. For me it's so important that my home be a place where I'm comfortable, happy and surrounded by things I love. I want it to look nice, but nice according to my rules, not anyone else's. I may have some funny-looking things, but each and every piece I own means something to me. I have fun with my decor, and that's something my former clients didn't seem to have. I encourage everyone - no matter how big or small your home, and no matter how much money you have - to decorate with passion. Create a space you love and you'll be happier for it.
