Sometimes decorating your home involves compromise. I like to think I take both the wants and needs of both the husband and the wife when I’m creating a color palette or decorating an interior. As I was arranging furniture yesterday in a client’s bedroom, she made mention of the mounted deer head she had seen on my blog.

If you are a design junky, you probably have spent a little time on Houzz.com, the leading online website for residential remodeling and design. This week they announced their "Best of Houzz 2013" awards, and I was happy to hear I was one of the designers who received an award, determined by the more than 11 million monthly users that make up the Houzz community.
What really makes me happy is that the award is for "Customer Satisfaction," which is something that is very important to me. I want each of my clients to be happy with the work I've done in their home and to believe that their time with me is valuable beyond the fee they paid.
So why did it bum me out so badly to find a negative review posted about me on Thumbtack today? This man said that I didn't return his emails or requests for a consultation and that he "had a very low opinion of me." First of all, I do not recognize the guy's name and really don't think I blew him off, but I let it make me feel bad anyway.
