You can call us Lucy and Ricky.
I am an interior designer, with an artistic bent. Ricky is an artist, though that is not his day job and he makes up the labor part of our duo.
We make up Design Fluff. Design Fluff is about the "fluff" of the design world. DIY, all things pretty, inspiring pictures and projects, and me chronicling my design fails and successes to eventually get to that "Before and After" moment and sharing it with you.
"Ricky" thinks it should be titled, "Blood Sweat and Tears," his blood and sweat and my tears cause he's not finishing fast enough.
What you can expect from this blog:
This blog is mainly about anything to do with the home, which is mainly diy and decor. At times I may share beauty things or a recipe, which most niche blogs do regardless. In other words, this isn't a lifestyle blog. I'm not Martha Stewart or Gwyneth Paltrow (I think they are both marvelous at what they do). I don't have domestic diva powers to show the rest of you how to live. I think you should live like you anyways. I share, at times, high end images simply for the design appeal and to inspire others who want to bring that aesthetic in their home. They are NOT shared because they cost a lot. This isn't that type of blog. Those with a creative mind can always take those images and perhaps spin it around into a diy for their home. Or, maybe the color palette and textures alone can inspire someone to interpret it into a more affordable project for the home. Inspiration can be in anything.
"Have you ever considered how much pure stuff and nonsense surrounds this subject of interior decoration? Probably not. Almost everyone believes that there is something deep and mysterious about it or that you have to know all sorts of complicated details about periods before you can lift a finger. Well, you don't. Decorating is just sheer fun: a delight in color, an awareness of balance, a feeling for lighting, a sense of style, a zest for life and an amused enjoyment of the smart accessories of the moment." - Dorothy Draper, Decorating is Fun!
