As Seen on TV: Design Myths & Reality


Rooms You Can Use
Magazines and decorating programs can show us what is possible.  They can inspire us to think differently about the space we have.  But when it comes time to make changes, it is important to think beyond the frame. While we want our homes to be pleasing and attractive, we need them to be functional as well.  That is where the expertise of a professional interior designer can prove invaluable.
