“word to the wise” wednesday: john willey

I don’t like fussy.  I think it’s funny when people come to my home and ask if they can put a glass on the coffee table.  Get comfortable!  It’s a home, not a museum.

    I agree, you have to be comfortable in your home, if not what's the point!

    I just heard John Willey speak a few months back at the Seattle Design Center. I loved meeting him and hearing what he had to say about the design industry and his personal experiences. And by the way, still buying your N.C. peonies!!! xo
