about   abode

 

Why when I walk into the home friends, family and acquaintances have created over time, do I find these places are magical, but by contrast, when I look at rooms that interior designers - our paid experts – have created, a wave of disappointment often washes over me?


In my quest to understand this conundrum, I dug deeply into my own past: pouring over notes, diaries, conversations with my mentors, as well as photographs and tear sheets I'd accumulated. I've attempted to pick out the best of the best. 

 

I believe that the power to create magic within our own four walls is not held by a select few but rather is within all of us to grasp. This is because no one knows our rooms better than we who dwell inside them everyday.
