Some Decorating Faux Pas by Professionals
you see it in a decorating magazine or book - does that automatically mean it's good decorating? Well, maybe and maybe not. Good design must be functional, first and
foremost. Then it has to be pleasing to the eye. And that can mean different things to different eyes.

Interesting Arrangement Ideas
Choosing your accessories is one of the most important steps you will ever take in your decorating efforts. Why? Because it
is your accessories that tell the world something about you as a person. It's your accessories, and your ability to place them correctly, that will give your home the right personality

Arranging Wine Cellars
I don't happen to be a connoisseur of fine wine but I've had clients who are. And many of them don't
just enjoy a glass of wine from time to time, many of them are collectors and have incorporated wine cellars into their homes

Advice for a Successful Business & Life
Have you ever had a day when nothing seems to go right? No matter how careful you are, mistakes are happening all
around you? In your frustration, you punish yourself with a follow-up mistake, even when you're telling yourself not to make any more. Invariably when I'm late for
an appointment, I take a wrong turn and make myself even later. When I'm hostile at someone cause I'm tired (yes, I have been known to get snippy), then even more
negativity comes into my life.
You know what I'm talking about. I know you do. It's because there is a "given" in life - that what you send out into the universe will come back to you in like
kind. So if you're feeling out of sorts one day, and you send that vibe out into the universe, you're likely to run into a bunch of people who are critical of you or
who get irritable with you for no reason that you can tell.
As hard as I try to help people, there are just some people who will never be happy. They are not happy with themselves so they make everyone around them unhappy.
Instead of rejoicing over something new they just learned, they pick at something meaningless to express critcism over. Do you know anyone like this? Chances are that
person is not successful at anything.
Successful people, truly successful people, are usually very kind, warm and generous. They are people that go out of their way to be helpful, not hurtful. They
are respectful of others and respectful of the effort of others. They do not stoop to negative behaviour meant to bring other people down.
One of the best New Year's resolutions you can make is to commit yourself to passing out compliments and blessing others with your words and what you write. If you
will do that, you'll be amazed at how much more success comes into your life on every level.
