The Importance of Trade Shows

Every year I attend at least one large, national trade show along with a few regional ones.  I’m not one for trends and at Ruxana’s Home Interiors LLC, our mantra is CLASSIC, but while it IS important for us to keep a pulse on trends, that isn’t the reason I attend shows.  The fact is, attending shows allows […]

Travel Inspires and Educates

If you’ve been a follower for any length of time, you will know that I love to travel.  Travel is important and I consider it an imperative part of my ongoing education.  Travel inspires and refills my creative reserves.  More profoundly, it exposes me to fresh design concepts, new products, trending colors and it provides real-life illustration of the impact […]

Good Design Takes Time…. and Knowledge

I was cleaning out my electronic files and stumbled across this photograph I took last summer.  It’s a close-up of the ladies room floor at the New York Mets’ Citi Field baseball stadium. Glamorous, I know. I took the photograph because I noticed that the designers used the Mets’ logo colors for the floor.  It […]

Interior design is a trinity of Business, Science and Creativity.  To be […]

Why ‘European’ is Synonymous with Good-Quality

People frequently ask me what HGTV show(s) I watch for inspiration.  I don’t. WHY not, you ask?  HGTV has only one job: to entertain.  My design colleagues and I are frustrated by the propagation of unrealistic budgets, free labor, bad design, absurdly short timelines and the proliferation of the belief that ‘cheap is good.’  So, what […]

Hiring a Designer is like Using an EZ Pass

My husband and I just returned from a quick vacation to Sea Isle City, New Jersey. We spent time relaxing and walked the beach every day.  It was lovely to get away and recharge our batteries. I realized last year that we frequently travel to areas with tolls so I decided to buy an EZ […]
