Hi, My name is Joy and I have Design ADD.
What is Design ADD, you may ask. It is the NEED to change the design of your home at least on a quarterly, if not on a monthly, or weekly basis. Some may call it an addiction. And, as with most addictions, it can be costly. But it doesn't have to be. Take my tin mantle/shelf, (well, don't really take it because you'll leave some big holes in my wall and you'll have to hire a moving company to carry it out because it's 8 feet long) I changed out the decor on the shelf using things I already had in my house. The pictures came from my bedroom, the leaded glass window was in my kitchen, and the candle lights were in my family room. The only thing I did spend money on were the topiaries and they were 75% OFF! (oooh, I love a good clearance sale). You know, it just might be an addiction because I do get a bit of a high when I see how just a few, simple changes can transform an entire room.
If you decide to admit that you have Design ADD too, look around your house and see if you can make some changes without spending any (or very little) money. Then you can experience a design high too!
