Thank You, Anjali Arnold.

Eclectic pragmatic would be a fun one to define and show photos of, but a big challenge for the Staging profession.

Like all Houzz fans, I enjoy looking at the variety of design options featured on this wonderful site. I have always been someone who embraces original yet personal style. I love antiques, art and books. For me old is just better...I cannot imagine walking into a furniture store and getting the matching 8 piece dining room set or a room full of living room furniture from a showroom. With that said, I know that I’m in the minority and I’m glad of that. I get such satisfaction looking at the 1800’s Welsh cabinet that was originally made for a kitchen or dining room in my living room. The beautiful iron French Radiator that most likely came from a rather well to do family home and the mold of an old carousel horse that to me makes the room so unique and beautiful. So in the end, I think that all of us have this innate idea of what speaks to us. There truly is no place like home and I’m so grateful to Houzz for the many opportunities to visit all types of homes and styles from all over the world!
