Sharing My Design Process

We've been in our house for a month now and am proud to say I just unpacked the last box yesterday!  Finally I get to focus on decorating!  Our first project and biggest project will be our living/dining/kitchen.  Our main level is open concept.

It's simple, I look at other people's photos and I ask myself what I like about them and why they work. Houzz This photo is a corner shot of…
