Location: Sunny Seattle, WA

Vocation: Full time 9 to 5’er, part time interior decorator/designer, REALLY part time blogger
Sign: Scorpio (which explains a lot)

Loves: Art/Design (duh), travel (so far, I’ve visited 15 countries outside the US, 45 cities), good food (benefit of traveling), comics, flea markets/antique shops/garage sales, bowling, JARTS (look it up), badminton, karaoke, collecting (a.k.a. focused hoarding), natural wonders, getting lost in beautiful locations, underdogs and oddballs, exhibitions of common sense, organization, and jumping off big rocks.
Design Philosophies: 1) I believe in quality over quantity, 2) COST does matter, so spend wisely, 3) the basics are necessary (visual balance, texture/pattern/color, proportion, functionality) in every room, 4) your space should make YOU happy (who cares if anyone else likes it or not – including me), 5) buy what you LOVE – don’t settle for LIKE.
