POP!!!  That’s the sound of the champagne bottle opening tonight!  After many months of research, planning, and hard work, I am thrilled to celebrate the official launch of Inner Décor!  Welcome!

Here on the Inner Décor blog, I’ll share my ideas and thoughts on interior design.  I’ll discuss my inspirations from all types of sources, and I’d love to hear about yours!  My goal is to post weekly and include updates and information about projects I’m working on, my opinions on if, when and how to incorporate trends into your home, DIY suggestions, and more.  The blogging world is all about community, so please jump in with your thoughts in the comments.

Now onto a long list of thank you’s, starting at…well, the beginning.  My parents always encouraged me to pursue whatever path interested me, for which I am very grateful.  I am so happy to feel like I am finally on the path that best combines my experiences, skills, training, and creative interests.  I’m excited to learn more every day!

Next, the great, diverse blogging community.  For years I have been reading the design greats like decor8, designmom, and design*sponge, where the pursuit of creative passions is encouraged on a daily basis.  Reading their voices reaching out to entire communities of readers has been so motivating and inspiring.  I truly believe that these and all blogs can really make a difference.

So, so many friends, near and far, have offered their kind words and support.  Their enthusiasm definitely gave me the push I needed to have the courage to go for it!

Finally, my wonderful husband.  He did not know he was signing up to be the spouse and, essentially almost-partner, of an entrepreneur.  But, he has whole-heartedly given me his backing and has helped me with so many of the tedious start-up tasks…including building this website!! How lucky am I?

Stay tuned for a “regular” Inner Décor blog post and be sure to check out my services page if you are interested in decorating services locally in the Toledo area or long-distance via online communication.  A gift certificate for an hour or two of consultation would also make a great gift!

Thank you so much for visiting and reading my very first blog post!  If you’d like to keep up with my posts and ideas, click the buttons above to follow me on Facebook, twitter, Pinterest, and/or subscribe to my RSS feed.
