Home wasn't built in a day.
Jane Sherwood Ace
I love that quote. It fits the 200 year-old home of one of my favorite clients, who really has become like a long lost friend rather than a client. (I love when that happens.) I did most of her first floor four years ago, and it struck me while visiting today that "home" is a word we ought to reserve for a sanctuary; one that has taken on a warm patina from the lives that it holds within its walls. Home tells a story. And when you walk into this home, you know exactly what kind of people live there, even if you never were to meet them. That's a home.
Sometimes, I think we can get caught up in the make-it-beautiful-now emotions of decorating (especially when you do it for a living!). But keep in mind that taking your time can be the quickest route to home. (Hey, can I quote me on that? lol)
Talk to you soon,
