The inside scoop straight from a designer

It’s almost the end of January, and I’ve spent the entire month cleaning and tidying up and switching things around in my house. Well, kind of! I don’t know about you, but I could use a little sunshine …  and a vacation 🙂 However, since that’s a ways out, an easy fix is to make sure our interiors look refreshed and ready for spring.

So, I immediately sought advice from my friend and extremely talented designer, Heidi Semler (see her website here). She has a great eye, the best taste, and the houses she has worked on are absolutely amazing … several have been featured in magazines. You can imagine how thrilled I was when she offered to share some of her favorite finds with me! So here they are, straight from Heidi herself. And since I’m a “closet” designer too, I’m sharing my favorites as well!
