Designer 4 a Day Blog

 

Hello & Welcome:

The Designer4aDay Blog shares my passion for interior design. See for yourself how exciting “just-looking” can be.  And buying?  If you’re a shopper like me you’ll be in “shopper” heaven.
To see some of my favorite new pieces and experiences visit my FaceBook page, and take a look on Instagram, to see some of the images of products that move me.

I promise an exciting treat for your creative senses. Stay tuned.

Your Designer4aDay,
