I've finally got around to photographing a few rooms in my home.  By showing these to you I am also exposing my neuroses surrounding my inability to design my own space.  For clients, I make decisions quickly and determinedly - but in my own home I can't hang art on the walls.  For my clients I have a clear design vision from the start but my own home is a mix-mash of styles and items I love but simply don't go very "designerly" together.  I fear a completed and cohesive space because I know I'll redesign the room the minute it was finished.  I am afraid I disappoint people when they visit "a designer's house".  I have heard that I am not the only interior designer with this issue, but seeing other beautiful homes of designers I think I actually may be. My house is always "in progress" but here are a few shots of what it looks like at this moment of time.

He is not normally allowed on the bed, does he look guilty?
A designer nightmare: a single offset window.
