The Dream

Lately, I have been unable to think of anything but the day when I will be able to open my own business.  

It has been a dream of mine FOREVER.  Those who know me best know that I would be happiest to be my own boss, able to create my own hours, and still make it to those important family events.   Owning my own design business is a high priority to me.  I am working on my business concept, trying to find a location, and creating a plan of how to make this amazing dream come true.  It’s hard not to get excited about the future when I start the planning process.  I know that this is not going to happen overnight, and I know that it’s going to take time.  However, I know that Jeb and I both want this, and we are both business-minded.  With him by my side, I really do feel like we can conquer the world.

A Creative Jump-Start 
Instead of coffee, most anything related to design is my ‘caffeine.’    
The past several mornings, the equivalent of a shot of espresso for me has been time spent on Houzz.com, ordering fabrics from Lee Industries, and playing around with this amazing FREE design tool I found online.  Thanks to Homestyler, I have been having a great time virtually planning my showroom!!

In case you haven’t figured it out, I am crazy, wildly, passionate about design.  
 I pour my heart into my designs.  I love the psychology of it; the challenge. You have to get inside your client’s head, help them discover what they want, and then bring those dreams to life.  
Sometimes I can’t believe it.  People respect my opinions so much so that they will let me TELL THEM what to do in their house.  I don’t live there, and I definitely believe that their opinions are more important than anything I think or say.  I feel so inadequate sometimes, and I’m usually just hoping that I don’t mess it up.  It’s a pretty big responsibility, but it’s awesome to know that you can truly make a difference in someone’s life.  
I hope that in my future, I am holding a set of keys to my own Design Center.
For now, I am so thankful for the opportunity to keep doing my thing!

By the way, I think you’ll be seeing a lot more color in my posts.  With all of the dreary weather we’ve been having, I think we could use an infusion of color!!
