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.

Couple builds dream home in Walla Walla

Melissa & Mike visiting the construction site... a marvelous winter landscape! The calendar years of 2020/2021 have been one of the most challenging and unpredictable years of my life. On the other hand, they have also been one of my best professionally. The saying time flies when you are busy is true! My last blog was in November! Therefore, I am enjoying taking a break and sharing with you my pleasure in having had an opportunity to meet some wonderful new clients and catch up with existing clients. They kept me busy with consultations, renovations, new contractors and problem-solving with people working and teaching their children at home. You might think the interval during new construction won't have much of an effect on interior design, but decisions made from initial drawings and during construction have a profound effect on home decor. They set the groundwork for client satisfaction, such as this project. As the point person for a couple building their third (and fi

For many, it could be your inviting spa just down the hall. Bathrooms do not have to be totally utilitarian. Adding certain elements can transform them into comfortable versions of a spa. You can create a place to rejuvenate and retreat to with the addition of details, and details matter! You can update a few elements such as the faucet, hardware, lighting and accessories that can miraculously change the look and function of your bath.   https://www.houzz.com/hznb/photos/manhattan-beach-ca-beach-style-los-angeles-phvw-vp~138004736 How much should you update?
