I am a Serial Remodeler who suffers from “While We’re At It" Syndrome. This serious disorder, though not officially listed in the DSM IV, can be quite crippling when the sufferer does NOT have a project to satiate their urges. This would be the state I currently find myself in as I sit in a housing “holding pattern”.
After finally selling our home in the city (a two year real estate saga), we have decided to rent while we figure out what sort of digs we desire in our new suburban zip code. During my stint in remodeling rehab, I seek solace by trolling favorite home design blogs for inspiration. The downside of this self-imposed “one step program” is that is has spurned a new disorder, Design Schizophrenia. I am now envisioning myself in a mid-century geodesic farmhouse, painted all white and furnished with only recycled objects.
I think I might need to seek a support group.
I encourage you to find your own inspiration at…

This is the design company of the family who is now featured on Bravo. Check out “9 by Design” every Tuesday @ 10. I would happily throw myself into their chaos to live in one of their brilliant spaces. Surely they have room for one more.
Kellykellykelly, how I love thee. Kelly Werstler is the cool girl’s guru. He funky, edgy, fearless vibe makes me giddy. I would like both her house and her wardrobe.
Another Kelly and one of my all time favorite designers. Hailing from the UK, her take on simple glam is spot on.
