Monday Matters: Finding your muse in Custom Interior Decorating & Design
I confess, I love couture details.
I have struggled to figure out where it came from…this manic love of the covered button, interlined pillow or silk monogrammed underlining on a chair that no one but the owner sees
…& why it compels me…
It finally hit me – not so subtly – this week.
Call me dense :)!…but sometimes it takes me a L O N G time to see things!!
I grew up with a mother who sewed. I am sure she missed her calling in some capacity…as she made everything over the years from bathing suits (!) to wedding dresses & even a beautiful knit out fit for my boys when they were infants.
Her creations were always perfectly cut. Always from a pattern in her brain or tweaked. Always custom.
Guess I found my muse. I miss her.
She knew how to find the exceptional in fabric & fabricate something that was magical to wear…..even when that fabric was cheap or I was overweight.
The way she cut the fabric, the care, the thread she used…the way the buttons NEVER fell off, the hems were always completely invisible…it made me feel like I mattered in a world of so many people…that someone took the time to make something special that would enhance who I was….
She made me feel special and important when a custom “anything” was made for me.
And I want you to feel that same way.
To know your value!
Let me say that again – I want you to know you are valuable. You are worth making something custom for. That will enhance your life, who you are at your core.
I can’t sew to save my dog’s soul…much less mine…but I can walk along side you & we can work together to incorporate custom into your home and life.
Who is your muse?
Couture Chateau is built on the foundation that design and living is all about you. Who you are, what you are meant to do and be. And that custom design matters because it equips you to “be a better you” and by extension, your community and the world at large are blessed because of that.
So here’s to Monday. It matters. And so do you!!
Live a custom life. There is only one you.
