When a year comes to an end it is a time to reflect back and look forward.

It’s a time to wish you a very Happy New Year from Du Interiors! 

No doubt we have all had a difficult and different two years with all kinds of challenges.

A lot has changed for all of us. But we are still here.

It’s a time for gratitude. It takes many forms. For me I am thankful that my interior design consulting business has kept me active in my creative environment. It gave me the opportunity to reconnect with old friends and clients not just in Oregon but also in Texas, Arizona, California and Washington. Designing attractive spaces so that people enjoy their environments and seeing it all pulled together to create a welcoming aura is a mutually pleasing.

On a personal level, my travel passion led me to Mexico for a family reunion, Hawaii for sunshine, Portugal for a month to explore this beautiful country and to my family in Brazil in 2021.

Needless to say, I have been very active but that is my preferred lifestyle! Every project has been interesting. I hope you have also had an enjoyable year. I hope you take the time to sleep in, relax and, once in a while do a little bingeing of your favorite TV series, like I do!

A warm-hearted Happy New Year from me to you!  Hello, 2022.
