A home should be a clear, vibrant expression of those who share it. It should be as individual as a fingerprint, and as unique to you. A designer should be a benign sort of enabler - someone with whom you create a visual, spatial manifestation of your best self.
No other home should look, or feel, quite like yours. Inspiration is essential, but replication for its own sake is never a good idea. The art, objects, colors and patterns surrounding you should mesh harmoniously, and should feel organic to who you are.
