Give Honor To The Things You Love

Today I helped a client choose what to put on some built in shelves in her dining/living area.  She hadn't really touched the shelves since she unpacked when they first moved in and random things were on the shelf.  We emptied the shelves completely and then I asked her to look around and bring me things that she loved.  At first, she had a hard time picking things.  She brought me one or two and I picked a few I personally loved.  Then she really started thinking about ...continue reading
