"And I have heard just about every possible argument against hiring a designer-they're too expensive, or they push people into going beyond their budgets and style comfort zones. 'I don't need one,' I've been told, 'because I have a connection who can get me into designer showrooms,' as if designers were little more than personal shoppers.
None of this is true, of course. I have had the privilege of watching designers at work, and have witnessed how much thought, expertise, hard-won experience, and sheer legwork go into the seemingly magical transformations they oversee. Even the grandest talents never lose sight of the practical-such as where to place overhead lights, or how high the light switch and the door lock should be. It is because these myriad mundane yet crucial considerations are second nature to them that designers can make creating a successful room seem effortless." - Michael Boodro, Editor in Chief Elle Decor
I thought this was so well put; thank you Mr. Boodro for a eloquent Editor's Page in this month's issue. The rest is certainly worth reading.

Another birthday came and went this week but I could not really think of anything I particularly wanted. Except this....
I pass three Wagoneer's every day on the way to work and I think they are starting to rub off on me. Also, would not mind an old- circa 90's- Land Rover. Just a thought....

need would like some light fixtures just like these.
Details...they are just so important.
Normally the scale would drive me crazy but it works here....and I like it a lot.
Easy. Need I say more?
