Quote from 'The Key to Successful Interior Design' at http://www.squidoo.com/successful-interior-design
'I want to make the point that people often have two sides - the side that they show us when you let them know you are coming to visit and the real side that you see when you just drop in!
That drop in side is what the designer detective needs to unearth to show how the client and family really live. Then they will have a feeling for the type of design that will work for them. You need to dig deep to find out what they really need as well as want.'
I have been looking through back issues of Vogue Living Australia which I collected a few years ago and have stumbled across this beautiful safari lodge in Nairobi; Ngong House www.ngonghouse.com
I haven't felt this much obsession for an interior for a long time. Perfect, like an African take on a 'Toast' interior.
