    I am currently building a house I think of the entire house as my masterpiece with stacked rock on the front, Brazilian Cherry floors, and recessed lighting throughout the house. The piece above is a very nice piece and would go very well as a chandelier in the dining room or breakfast area. However the one thing I would want to be my centerpiece is a hanging front porch light. I have been looking several weeks now for a certain type of hanging front porch light. This is important to me because this is the first thing a person sees when coming to my new home in the day and at night. Hopefully over the next couple of days I will find this light.

    I would display items with personal memories or meaning in a distinctive way.

    I think lighting is everything. I love nature, too. So, that would have to be integrated somehow with lighting as my signature.

    I would design glamorous headboards. I have always been intrigued by headboards, I have actually covered my own twice with beautiful fabrics. I think it is relaxing to have a cozy bedroom.

    Some kind of nicked up, lived with, piece of furniture in every room. I like things that arent perfect (hah they make me feel better about myself!)

    oh…um…is the deadline supposed to be Monday, May 10th? Im thinking that maybe you mean the 17?…just a little heads up there!

    My signature would be more muted tones with minor splashes of color in random bottles, pillows, sculputres, etc. Muted major furniture such as couches and chairs can always work with whatever color scheme you're into for the season!

  8. My design statement would be floors and floor coverings. There are so many beautiful flooring options that can warm, cool, surprise, accent, mute, add elegance or sass, and tie a room together. And they are available at all price points. Awesome!

    My signature piece would be furniture made from recycled items such as a table made from a hood of a car or a chair made out of reclaimed wood from a old barn.
