Wondering if any of you have toyed w/the idea of making a business out of design. Anyone already putting themselves out there? Any advice Abigail?

Don't do it! Kidding sort of, its a hard gig being an interior designer but I found using your own home as a showcase helps big time as it shows off your style. If you can get it in a magazine even better as it will launch you - it certainly did me. You'll then get clients on board who love your style which helps greatly. Good luck with it let us know how it goes

Wow, congratulations Kate. You have the most beautiful home. I am beyond jealous. Best of luck with this exciting venture, though I don't think you need it.
