One of my favorite shows on HGTV is Find Your Style with Karen McAloon. If you’ve never seen this show, the basic premise is that people in need of design help call in a designer, who helps them find color inspiration in a piece (usually artwork) they already own. Then, they go out to purchase furniture on their own, and return to arrange everything in the room. Karen steps in and gives them other options of layouts, accessories, etc. I love that she doesn’t design a room for them, but helps them learn how to design a room themselves. Also, I love that the homeowners make (or at least seem to make) all of the decisions themselves. But seriously, how awesome would it be to have someone come in and teach you little things to make the pieces you already have look even better? Karen can call me anytime!
