Since it's Spring, it seems like a good time to take a look at preparing your guest room for those loved ones who are planning to come visit you during their Spring or Summer vacations.
Sure, that spare room allocated for guests is probably ready-to-go, so to speak, but maybe it can be enchanted with a little creativity. What I mean is, possibly go with a theme for the room to give it some pazazz, like I did with my now "Hollywood Room". Continue reading

I want to clarify the difference between an interior designer and an interior decorator. They both do mostly the same thing - design new spaces - however it's the Designer who has a college degree and studied about architecture.
