There's so much going on guys one of these days. But I know everything's gonna be fine. Everything's getting back to normal. I can see things improving week by week, slowly but surely. 


But honestly I'm hanging on by a thread and I have such compassion. I mean, I've always had empathy for my clients, moving into a new space living with zillions of boxes feeling uncomfortable, waiting for a couch for two months, dealing with supply chain delays, but I have empathy on a whole new level.


Now that I am going through it. I am hanging on by a thread and I feel your pain. So if you're moving, if you've just moved, if your life is in chaos, if you can't remember where you put your earrings either? This is the reality of my life. And so it is so fun to have an escape, my escape being talking to you and answering your design questions. 


In the meantime, you have been sending me all kinds of amazing questions and I am excited to hop into the mailbag today. 

This episode, we discuss…

[5:40] Window treatments for 1962 Mid Century Home (Tim)

[14:11] Choosing living room and dining room rugs that complement each other (Kristen)
