I can walk into an empty room and instantly get a feeling for what it would take to make the space spectacular. A good designer has to be able to sense it. It's more than about what goes where. It's about creating a balance. Both physical and emotional. When people tell me there is something missing in their design project, what I hear is that I haven't found the necessary balance. You see, it doesn't matter if you're the type of person who likes a room full of stuff or a few carefully chosen items, when your soul senses balance you'll know it.

So, if you are just starting to decorate your home and need ideas, then yes, look in magazines and collect ideas where you can. But if you have the foundation pieces, then please shut off the computer and start living. Start living and collecting and smiling and feeling and hunting and gathering and filling your home with love. Then you'll feel the balance and see that nothing is missing.
