“word to the wise” wednesday: ruthie sommers

I’m over the idea that a decorator is anything more than a decorator.  You sit on the floor with clients, talk about chairs, push fabrics.  Lifestyle architect?  Tastemaker?  Please.  If you have taste you never even say the word!

    Great quote. Love those multi-colored dining chairs - I wish we all had the guts to use color so boldly!
