Lots of people might try to “play it safe” with a “standard-sized sofa,” there’s a BIG PROBLEM with that strategy.
➡️ TRUTH: There are A LOT of “standard sofa” sizes. For example, lengths of 72″, 84″, 96″, 110″ …. Depths of 36″, 38″, 40″, 44″…. Heights of 30″, 32″, 34″, 36″ ….
➡️ TRUTH: No house is “standard.” Going out and just buying stuff without first thinking through how it will work in your unique home WON’T give you the lovely rooms you crave. Making your space plan FIRST is work, but it results in CONFIDENCE, knowing that your purchases will be a success.

And I was once that clueless Forever Homeowner, just like you!
When the info I needed to design my own Forever Home the way I wanted to wasn’t available, I decided to boot-strap it and learn design from the ground up.
Now, I’m a professional interior decorator with dozens of happy clients & a slew of magazine-published projects. I’m also a design blogger through Home Glow’s “Saturday Blog” & design educator with “The Home Glow Method.”
My passion is helping YOU decorate your forever homes, with the character, quality, & comfort that will stand the test of time!
