inspirational rooms o' the day...

Who doesn't love a little inspiration now and then? It's everywhere.

Todd Alexander Romano is a decorator who's work is definitely worth looking at. All the elements of great decorating are used in classic ways, but if you look closely...there's freshness and some fun going on as well. I'm a big fan of the fun. Rooms that take themselves too seriously are like people that do the same. You never want to hang with them.

David John-

A few tips I have are:

-Make work for yourself all the time, even if it means helping friends and family...AND take before and after pics of all you work. ALL of it. I didn't when I was starting out and now I wish I had.

-Use your own home as a "test lab" to try new ideas out before you use them for clients.

-One of the most powerful things you can do is say, "No." Not every client is right for you. It's a real personal relationship and if it doesn't feel right for either you or the client, it may be best to not work together, no matter how much you may need the job. Trust me.

Hope this helps a little and continue the creativity...
