I'd say YES. I worked for an upscale interior designer years ago and his talents and tastes really rubbed off on me. Yay me! I will say though, I am fortunate to be content with pretty much the original decorating job we did. Still love our paint colors, the stuff on the walls, the furniture, etc.. My kids' friends LOVE our house. Think it's very cool. Now, keeping it spic and span, magazine tidy? That almost NEVER happens. Except for this week. A missionary family of five is coming to stay five days. I have been cleaning my fool head off for two weeks now!!! Perish the thought that they see a dust bunny or grimy finger print.
One more thing. A piece of advice actually. If you have young kids, don't buy white anything. Or light colors either. I'm talking towels in the bathroom, towels in the kitchen, sheets, upholstery, etc.. The darker the color, the less it shows dirt.
