Quote of the Week
I recently purchased the new book by interior designer Celerie Kemble, To Your Taste, and absolutely love it. Not only are the photographs of her incredible work inspiring, it's also beautifully written with tons of practical advice and tips on design. Instead of a quote for today, I wanted to share an excerpt from the book:
PHOTO CREDITS: (TOP) JONATHAN ADLER & LIVING ETC.
"People are often afraid that their taste is wrong; they are fearful that the cost of making changes will be prohibitive; they are anxious about making expensive mistakes; and, more broadly, we are all busy - it often seems easier to put off the time-consuming task of reordering your home than to tackle it, even though you long to be surrounded by an environment that soothes and delights you...It can all see daunting to someone who does not know the terrain. Armed with information, the right attitude and the understanding of beauty and comfort, these challenges, and others you confront, can be gracefully overcome."
