The “Red and White” of it all.

I’m not talking about wine. It’s about how I got inspired to become an interior designer. Back in high school my friend Margie invited me to join her when she was baby sitting. We entered this luxorious condo and “WOW” was I impressed. Plush white carpeting welcomed you in. Hanging on the wall was this multi-level irregular shaped mirror that sparkled brillantly and as I turned to the right was the master bedroom. I was immediately drawn into the room. A modern splendor of red and white. There was a mixture of textures, plush white carpet, red lacquered dressers with red framed mirrors mounted above, and a white leather headboard. The bedding was a fluffy white down comforter. I loved the crispness and clarity.
As I stood there admiring and absorbing it all, I said to myself ” I could do this.” It was that simple. I was so moved by the beauty of it all. It stirred in me the direction my life would take. I don’t know if I ever told Margie but I’m grateful to a friend who wanted company and opened a door for me into a world that has given me the opportunity to design remarkable homes for remarkable people.
I dedicate this first blog post to my friend Margie. I hope heaven is as gorgeous, beautiful, and inspiring…………….. Here are some red and white rooms that I hope will inspire you too!
