Part V - Of The "Five Most Common Decorating Problems that People Have in Decorating their Homes"Wherever you go - Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, parties, meetings, family dinners, everyone is talking about their goals and changes they want in their home.
We all may be different, but then we all have so much in common. One of those items we have in common is that we all have distinct ways we process change.
Change is a funny thing. It can be good or bad. It means different things to different people. Some people thrive on change. Others sense change as scary or intimidating - so much so that it stops them in their path of doing something new.
All of my successful decorating clients want change. Some need encouragement to go forward. Others need a second opinion in their decisions.
But most of all, they realize that doing nothing means things stay the same. The living room will look the same, the kitchen will stay cramped and dated, etc.
The biggest problem in decorating to me is the decision to make a commitment to schedule a date when the home makeover will begin.
You can talk about it, spend hours on Pinterest, read every decorating magazine on the newsstand. But, nothing will happen till you pull out your calendar, call your contractor, call your interior designer, or visit the kitchen showroom.
Lesson #5: Change is good!
