America is in the midst of a superhero craze with the recent release of Captain America: The First Avenger and the after effects of Comic-Con. While I’ve always been a fan of fictional superheroes and their ongoing save-the-day adventures, I prefer real-life superhero moments of the design kind. Some have been best friends who’ve rescued me from style mishaps and design tragedies of epic proportions. HGTV’s David Bromstad ranks up there, too. But my most amazing superhero design moment is all thanks to Mom during my recent move.
Superheros of Marvel Characters, Inc.
Going from a studio to a two-bedroom apartment meant that except for a bedroom set, life in my new home began with every other room pretty much bare. Then, Mom came to the rescue! She handed over a favorite sofa of hers, side tables, a coffee table, artwork for the walls and home decor she felt would look better in my pad than hers. Like Clark Kent in a phone booth, my new place transformed into home. And if it wasn’t for her, I’d probably still be sitting on crates on the floor in front of the television.
What is your most memorable design superhero moment? Did someone bravely stop you from covering your floors in puke-green carpet? Or did a particular Candice Olson design tip completely inspire you to transform your living room into a stylish masterpiece? Maybe you are a self-identified design superhero?
