dinner_settingI spend most of my time these days as a non-objective painter.  Before I retired, I ran a one-person freelance business as a web designer, graphic designer, and illustrator.

My attraction for interior design began as a teenager and was renewed when we purchased our lovely and charming 1937-era home that was in need of more than a little paint and polish. I took my first interior design class a few years ago primarily to learn a few things about redesigning our space.  I have also occasionally helped friends, relatives, and neighbors beautify their spaces.

The work on our lovely old house continues in fits and starts as time and finances allow.  I can at least imagine an end in sight, when all the remodeling and design projects are complete, and we can just enjoy the beauty of our space.  In the meantime, I’ll be posting some notes and photos about things I learn through our renovation process, along with the trials and tribulations, and hopefully, positive outcomes!
