In the dark abyss, before the healing light of design, I was blinded by my financial background, so my bias was to view every decision through a financial lens. Time and again, when I was dining out with my wife, I would comment on how much the proprietor spent on the build-out. Design, I now know is the essence of life. Everything in your world is there because a designer conceived it, constructed it and found a way to market it. Design has the ability to make our lives glorious or intolerable. We are indebted to the dreamers, the designers who move us forward with style!
