Now, the honest people will also tell you that building a house takes a lot of work, decision-making, and some blood, sweat, and tears, but it will be worth it in the long run. And, as an interior designer building a home for myself for the first time, I believe everything everyone has said to me thus far is true. That said, NO ONE could have prepared me for the painstaking hours, hard work, and attention to detail involved in building a house. While I have always had faith in my ability to do my job for clients and do it well, I am now my own client, and I am flat out overwhelmed! It is so hard to make decisions for yourself that you know YOU have to live with permanently! Accordingly, I’ve decided I need TWO designers on “my job,” and my dad (CHD’s Patriarch and Master Designer) is the lucky winner of my design team for two openings. I had plans to be his favorite client, yet with all my experience and knowledge, that was sure to make his job on our “design team” easier. But, after several hours in the fabric room yesterday asking Dad’s opinion on selections for myself, he informed me I may be his most indecisive and high-maintenance client yet. Daddy, you are welcome. I must get it from somewhere, right?
