How to Redesign the Interior of Your Home

Hello, my name is Mary. I live alone in a large house in Perth. I never used to give a second thought to all these interior design programmes you see on the TV. I thought it was all nonsense. However, after my husband passed away a few years ago, I fell into a deep depression. I didn't leave the house for weeks. My son came to visit me and suggested that I redecorate the family home. He called in an interior designer who talked me through the changes I could make. Planning a new look for my home really helped me to overcome my grief. I decided to start this blog to encourage others to use interior design to improve their lives.
