Sheron Cardin's Input...: March 2007

I have been an interior designer for over 27 years and I have always taught my clients the principles I used while decorating their home so they may enjoy decorating too. The home staging trend in residential real estate is a great way to reach more people every day and what I enjoy the most is they are learning the basics of good design through staging. It is my dream for every person to know the joy and pride of living in a decorated home.

The Art of Visualization...

Question: What do rich folk daydream and visualize about?
Answer: Yeah, whatever they want.

Question: And what do poor folk daydream and visualize about?
Answer: Yeah, whatever they want.

So simple yet so true. I am still wandering with my minds eye closed and this little ditty brings it all back into the focus...the smallest of dreams can become the greatest deterrents to where we want to go if we don't catch them and throw them back into the pond.

Happy and productive dreaming! 

Namaste
