So shrew...

Isn't this the designer's plan?  At least it is in Powell Brower Interiors. 
In scouring the latest glossies, I have an aversion to the rooms that have all the trends in one overkill, so impersonal, so 'retail' looking.  Opt for:

simple & understated
clients own collections
personal touches
antiques, heirlooms 
lived-in look
fresh & up-to-date
{pet friendly}

Enjoy the process!


  1. Nancy you are so right. The best designed rooms look collected and layered with special pieces over time!

  2. Hmmm this is a timely post. All the current trends in one room...yes....I am seeing that everywhere and it does feel like overkill. No place for the eye to rest. Lack of personal touches. Kind of exhausting. There is so much psychology behind decorating isn't there?

  3. So true! Perfectly spoken by Duke!

  4. Well-said Nancy and what a great guide for designers and just decor lovers in general!

  5. What a perfect selection of words to make a very powerful point
