Thankful II

Reflecting back on this past year I am thankful for three things. The happiness of my family, good health, and a firm foundation of love for my children to come and go from as they grow older. I strive to keep that firm foundation of love decorated fabulously and I do believe that all of my boys appreciate it even if they don’t admit it.

Harvest moon in my family room, Gray Walker Interiors.

I think that is one of the things that led me to interior design… I am a homebody at heart. I much prefer a night in to a large crowd. My entire house can be mentally rearranged  when I concentrate and wander. Two opposing concepts summarize my creative process.  The same thing happens at my client’s homes. It isn’t unusual to be in a site meeting when something completely off topic explodes out of my mouth. That is the beauty of my long term relationships with homes and their owner’s… It just spills out when I least expect it.

My husband found that piece of coral in Boca Grande, Florida at his grandmother’s home as a child… There it sits in our foyer and we will be in Boca Grande for Christmas. I love tradition. Gray Walker Interiors.

This past year some unpredictable circumstances kept me in bed for quite some time. Home is your refuge from the world and it should be a place that comforts you when the going gets tough. Aesthetic beauty  comforts me and guiding others to achieve that comfort in their homes is what I love to do. I am thankful that I can do that every day!
