I’ve been thinking the last couple of days about writing a blog, but I’ve struggled with what I might write about. What’s my point of view, what do I need to communicate and does anyone care? Do I have to be a serious writer??? If that’s the case this is definitely not going to work out… I am not a serious writer. What I do know though… is that I have lots of ideas, tips and shopping finds I can share that I think you’ll like. Maybe I’ll share what’s happening on our job sites, some before and after pics or some pretty story boards that you can try in your home. Perhaps it’ll be some DIY project’s you can take on, advice on choosing the right paint color or maybe even a recipe I think you can’t live without. We’ll just have to wait and see.
I’m sure the blog will change and evolve as all things do in interior design and life. Hopefully something I write or share will enrich your life in some way and you’ll walk away having learned something useful or have been left feeling creative or motivated.
As for this, my first blog, I will start with this…
I am Valerie Helgeson. I own a design and remodeling company that I founded in 2000 with the encouragement and support of my handsome husband Keith. I live and breathe design. It’s what gets me going in the morning and keeps me motivated to work 7 days a week. I even dream about it when I sleep. I get chills when an idea comes together in a cohesive “ah-ha, this is it” kind of way. I love the smell of fresh paint, lumber, and new textiles. I love being able to see the potential in a home or space that others struggle to see. I adore tearing down walls and creating big open floor plans where families can live and play together. More than anything though, I love helping people make their dreams come true. It’s hard work and rarely glamorous, but it’s all worth it when the pretty stuff goes in and my clients walk in to to see their finished home or space for the first time. So check back in often. Take this blog ride with me and let’s see where we’re going.
Peace and Love,
