Hello, my dear reader(s).  I don’t know who you are yet, but I hope I’ll get to know you soon.

Who am I?  I’m Lisa, a forty-something year old gal who late in life decided that interior decorating was the most exciting, creative, challenging hobby I had ever pursued. For the last 7 years I’ve immersed myself in all things interiors. I even graduated with a Certificate in Interior Design from the New York Institute of Art and Design. Decorating interiors has been on my mind almost 24/7. Right now, that’s my dream life. My real life consists of a full-time job that pays the bills and a family that takes up much of my time. I dream of a day when interior design will pay the bills and I can create beauty in other people’s spaces.

Why Did I Start This Blog? Almost one year ago we moved from a two bedroom, one bath condo to a newly built home that is over three times larger. It’s a dream come true really. And a blank slate.  What do we do with a blank slate? We scribble all over it. Just joshing. We paint it a pretty color and then decorate it. Ha! That’s what I plan to do (and have already been doing). I figured that a blog would be a perfect place to share the process in real time. Hopefully it’ll be a place to get ideas, find out what not to do and share some of your own design knowledge.

P.S. If you ever have questions, feedback or just want to say “Hi”, I’d love to hear from you.  Leave a comment below.

Take care,
