I think it's darn cool to get an email from another blogger with words like "you are funny"...."I love your work"....Partly because you always want to know how you come across to others.
Thoughts like "is this too much" or "I don't want to sound like a know it all" invariably cross my mind when I am writing. The thing about blogging is it can be slightly narcissistic....after it all it's about "you" and what you're up to. Then you add all the wonderful comments that mostly strangers leave and there you go skipping through life like you own the place.
Autumn from Design Dump kindly said those words to me last week when she asked me to participate in this tour. Yeah.....I wasn't about to say no and burst her "Sherika" bubble right?
Let's take a look at this talented Salt Lake designer's work.
Last year she participated in the ORC with her office and boy was I jealous. Mine looks like a room on "Hoarders".
Then you have this nursery....
So eclectic and funky....love it!
I remember watching this bathroom come together. Crazy about this wallpaper.
Or when she got a hold of this dining room which now serves double duty as a library.
Girl can knock out a design board which make mine look scribbling from a kid at pre school.
And.....here are my thoughts.
Why do I write/create what I do?
Heck I don't know....how about the fact that one day I just said "I want to shout my thoughts to the world and then read what people would say about it!" As far as design.....I can't do math so it seemed like design would be a good alternative. Little did I know that invoicing would would take some of that "fun" away:)
How does my style differ from others in my genre?
Oh I'm all over the place. I might not like a particular style for myself but I can totally appreciate a well done space. If I had to pin it down it would be casual, functional and well edited rooms. It's no secret that I like neutrals.
What am I working on now?
I just announced that I am doing the ORC again and along with a few other clients fall is looking pretty busy!
To continue the tour I am selecting another favorite designer and blog friend Mary Ann from Classic Casual Home.
Ambush! I better send her an email and let her know!
I think our styles are very similar. Check it out...
She has just moved into a rental in SF and I love seeing how her things look all mixed up in different rooms.
We both share a love of neutrals, blue and Pyne Hollyhock fabric:)
And these bookshelves.....hello mommie.
This is a picture of her old home. I could move right in.....
Mary Ann if you aren't cussing me right now then hopefully you can keep this going....if not no biggy.
Cause it has to stop somewhere:)
Come back on Wednesday and find out what I am doing for the ORC this round!
