Welcome to Inspired Living by Design

it’s great to see you here.  Inspired Living by Design is an offshoot of my Interior Design practice, Carolyn Anderson Design, where I can share the font of knowledge I have acquired over many years of practice.  Here you will find many ideas, thoughts, insights, tips and tools that will help you create the home of your dreams. You’ll learn what the Pros do that makes those amazing photos on Pinterest or Houzz so great.  There will be announcements of online classes I’m offering, that will give you more detail than a blog can, on subjects I’ve taught in the past or that you ask for in your comments.

A little bit about my background:

I have been practicing interior design since 1991, and started my own studio in 1995. My first independent experience involved updating the interiors of some of San Francisco’s Grand Dame hotels.  My passion at that time was historic interior design; and I spent a number of years focusing on that before concentrating exclusively on residential design for houses of any age.   Since the beginning of my career, I have created the interiors of homes across the US and in Canada, working with people representing a wide variety of styles and income levels.  What I have learned along with way is what I want to share with you; and is the reason I launched Inspired Living by Design.

So WELCOME! Enjoy the blogs to come, and as time goes by, the archived blogs.  You will learn a lot. I look forward to your feedback and your thoughts on the subjects I cover here.  Lets build a community of people passionate about Inspired Living by Design!

      Many of these comments come from non-english speakers, and the translation is often not so great. I try to edit then when I have time, but sometimes they slip through.

    the web without my authorization. Do you kbow any methoxs to help reduhe content from being
    stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.

    • cschampagne on said:

      As far as i’m concerned, when we post ideas on a platform like this, the purpose is to share information freely. There are ways to monetize your content, like posting short teasers and directing traffic to your website, where you can clearly state that your words are copywrited. But we are moving into a time when that is no longer part of the human paradigm. Sharing ideas and information without condition is where we’re evolving to, so I am happy if my ideas are picked up and passed around. I belive they come through me, not from me.

  14. I tend not to create many responses, but i ddid a few searching
    and wound up here Welcome to Inspired Living by Design | Inspired Living bby
