CCH is filled with simple, bite-size style and decorating tips, because I believe everyone is entitled to live beautifully, comfortably, and happily. To me, this is what interior design is: helping people do just that.

You don’t have to do everything at once. (Talk about overwhelming!)

Let your home talk to you. Consider the architecture, the layout, how you use the space. Note the light, the property. It will all work together to shape the answers and help you create a welcoming, comfortable, beautiful, and thoughtful home!
