The Miriam Webster definition of design is stated above.
As a Designer, mine slightly differs, and is listed below:
To be given the ability to do what you love, with good intent of the outcome for all involved; to be allowed to let your soul sing; to create with the purpose of enhancing the lives of those using the space with functionality, aesthetic and inherent value; to consistently produce quality with a high level of integrity and creativity.
My thanks to all of my clients over the past year for allowing me into your homes to create a space that you dwell in everyday. It has been my pleasure to listen your ideas, give input, tweak, brainstorm with you and create a space that not only fits your needs but adheres to the William Morris principle - "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful."
Happy New Year to friends and clients alike. Funny how many of them are now one and the same.
All the best to you all in 2012.......With thanks and always, take good care,
