“Life’s too short to be designing one’s home to suit the next person who lives there — do what’s right for you.”
– Tommy Smythe
Great advice from the design assistant to our favorite designer, Sarah Richardson! He said this in response to frequently hearing that homeowners often feel that their renovations need to be appropriate for resale.
It’s especially meaningful to us, because as we’re in the process of doing different projects around the house, I’ve wondered whether the next person to buy our house will love our design decisions as much as we do… and they may not, but we’re happy with our choices, and that’s what really matters!
