If you live in the decor/design world, then more than likely you know about Kelly Wearstler. The media has a love affair with her. I think most of us love her, but I'm sure others not so much. Think of her designs as you will but if there is one thing you can not call her, it's timid and afraid of design. I happen to admire some of her work, better yet adore it. Not only does it resonate with my own tastes but it inspires me to quit being so timid in my own life and just. live. life.

Too many times interior designers/decorators and bloggers (whatever you want to call yourself), myself included, live afraid to unleash themselves and reach their true potential. What many of us don't realize is that interior design/decor is more than just adorning a place, it's a way to express yourself and to convey a mood or atmosphere. It can be art at its best.

Why do we go through our lives as designers/decorators with a nice, but safe, and dare I say somewhat dull, home, only to go online and drool over photos with daring elements and bold color. Oh, if we could only be so brave to live in a house like.........
Why can't we, better yet, why won't we? You have one life, do you really want to live it safe all the way? . Do you really not want to see what type of potential you really have? What is stopping you? Are you afraid someone might not like it? I hate to break it to you but there are always people that won't like what you do with your home. I'd hate to say I lived my life timid and afraid of expressing myself in favor of what is safe and yes, dull at times (I'm speaking to myself on this) over a matter of some nay sayers.
