Stop. Collaborate and Listen.

Vanessa got home very late – after midnight – on Friday night from hanging out with some of her girlfriends. By 12:30, we had started into a discussion that we had been avoiding for several days. When I use the word “discussion,” I mean “fight.” 12:30 in the morning is a terrible time to start a fight, but it was one we needed to have, and there is no time like the present, I suppose.

Imagine that your living room gets some amazing, colorful, or wacky makeover and now it completely clashes with everything else in your home. (Like in the picture – where one designer glued straw to the wall in someone’s living room.) One room, the straw notwithstanding, has the touches of a design professional and skilled craftsman all over it, while the rest of the house is still sporting items from the Walmart clearance aisle. At least when you were decorating your house by yourself, there was some consistency to it. Now, one room is different and the rest of the rooms are, well, not.   Read More…
