Just a short tip today for those of you who, like me, have grown so accustomed to your own idiosyncratic spaces that you can't figure out what's what. You know it's an issue for you when you can instantly see what could be improved in someone else's space, but pull your hair out trying to figure out your own needs.
After living so long in the same space, I become blind to the actual merits and flaws. Everything is just too familiar and my brain can't make the distinctions and analyze the design correctly.
So - I use a mirror. What I do is I look through the mirror to see the room BACKWARDS. Wow. Totally different.
Now all the flaws become obvious. Easy to see where you need to adjust, shift, replace, perk up, remove. I can see it now because in my mirror it is a NEW ROOM.
And better yet - a fresh look will help you see how FABULOUS your room really is. Your design was spot on all along - you just got so used to it that you forgot! It's like putting on a new pair of glasses. With the nose. Try it.
If you need a little help (or a lot) call me.
I'd be delighted to make your interior world rock!
