"Almost everyone believes that there is something deep and mysterious about interior decoration or that you have to know all sorts of complicated details about periods before you can lift a finger.  Well, you don't.  Decorating is just sheer fun; a delight in color, an awareness of balance, a feeling for lighting, a sense of style, a zest for life, and amused enjoyment of the smart accessories of the moment."

    -Dorothy Draper from her 1939 classic, 'Decorating is Fun'
