The first thing I need to tell y'all is a pro tip, and it is this: Do not buy any plants for your house that are tiny. I mean it, Internet. Stop buying baby-ass plants where you're like, "It's so cute right now! It will get bigger!" No it won't. It won't get bigger, and you will just be watering the damn thing until it dies. Example:


Do you have one of these? I'm sorry, but I am going to have to ask you to get rid of it immediately. I know you think you have a green thumb, but this will never look good. Into the trash, please.

OK, that is not what I wanted to talk about in this entry, but I couldn't help myself. I just keep seeing terrible plants in gorgeous interiors, and it's making me sad.

What I wanted to do was to feature the kind of thing I am doing with my time now. Allow me to show you a super-exciting living room design that I'm working on.

This is a living room for people who have just moved into an actual house, and not a rental space. These clients are basically starting from scratch, and definitely have a budget in mind. They want modern, but not too $$$. So, I did a bunch of high/low for them to choose from, with both low-budget and vintage items, and a couple of splash-out type situations. Those amazing orange lamps are still available somewhere, so if you find them, don't buy them.

This is where I say that I can do this for you, too. And I can! See here.

PS. My clients also love cats.

PPS. The actual curtains will be pinch-pleated.
