Q: I read design blogs and Love It Or List It is my favorite show, but I can't decorate, paint, or replicate the home of my dreams like so many DIYers can. I've accepted it: I'm design-challenged. I cannot make decisions on improving my home because I have no clue. No idea what I want, no idea what will look best, nada. I've come to terms and accepted that. My problem is what to do about it. The only option I see is getting help from a pro. Honestly, I'm scared. They will require answers from me that I can't give and the thought of that embarrasses me. What I need are the twins from Property Brothers. Anyone know them? -Sent by Trish
Editor: Oh my goodness, my heart goes out to you, Trish! It's never pleasant to feel intimidated, embarrassed, or lost. I think we all have at least one area where we feel the same way, whether it's at the doctor or the mechanic or even the florist. What advice to do we have for Trish to help her feel more confident? How can she figure out what she likes and how to make it happen? What are some good baby steps she can take into the world of design? How do you recommend she approach any future meetings with professionals? And does anyone know the Property Brothers? If so, please send them her way!
