Welcome to the Interior Designers Blackbook.  The intention of this website is to be a collaborative source of information for lovers of interior design.  I want to answer the how to’s and what fors.  These could be things you may not have learned but turn out to be fascinating.  Or, the subjects might cover what was in that class you skipped,  the book you forgot to read,  the facts with which you didn’t want to overburden your memory bank or the question you didn’t want to appear stupid for asking…

The subject is vast and always interesting. Interior design is a subject that affects all of us in one way or the other. How and where we live, work, play and interact is strongly influenced by our surroundings. The way an interior is arranged, painted, furnished, organized and accessorized influences our thoughts, moods, and energy. Whether we will buy a shop’s goods, eat in a restaurant or look forward to going home at night can be attributed by the subtleties of interior design.

Stay tuned as I develop this blog into a website that will give the budding designer (or a seasoned one) products, services and insights that can help to better organize, stay creative, discover resources and stay on top of this ever changing field.

Our categories are not  just random thoughts but layers of information that build on the subject under which it is listed.

My name is Mary Stein.  I have practiced in the field of design for the past 25 years and explored its varied areas of opportunity.  Design is in my blood  and the reference point I start with upon entering a building or home.  I am fascinated with the creative minds that put forth new ideas and show ever evolving ways of viewing our world.

I hope you will join me on this journey as we expand our understanding together and enjoy the interest we share in this creative niche of the world.~~
