Over the next few months I will share some of my experiences of the last twenty years. I was lucky to have worked in some very beautiful homes across the country . . . from mobile homes to mansions. A big highlight of my career (so far) was the ten years I spent working with HGTV's Decorating Cents.
These (not so clear) photos are from the 1st newspaper article about my new business (what was that hairdo?) Many more articles would follow this one, along with magazine stories, and TV news segments in San Diego and Phoenix. I was very fortunate for all of the coverage I received from the press.
One funny story from about nine years ago was how hard it was for me to transition from interior designer to shopkeeper.
I finally had the shop looking really good and was ready to open the doors to At Home on Main Street. But the big grand opening was not until the next day and I wanted to impress my special guest - HGTV's Michael Payne (from Designing for the Sexes) who was coming to talk and sign books.
