7 Things About Me You Don't Know.....

before i go on.......
In accepting this award for "The Versatile Blogger" , I want to say "Thank You" to Bette@ if you don't know about Bette or have not visited her blog please do.She is the wisest of most of us.
She has helped me in more ways than I can express.

2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass this award along to recently discovered and often visited blogs you enjoy reading.
4. Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know about the award.


I am a child of 50% of the rest of this nation,
and so is my daughter.
I don't like it ....but sometimes it is the lesser of two evils.

I believe strongly in G-d.
When my back is against the wall,
And lately that seems to be an everyday occurance
I depend on him.
When I don't know what to pray for;
I simply ask him to 'STAY WITH ME.'
....He does.

Interior Design is the one and only area in my life
that I am completely sure of my choices and decisions.
Everywhere else in my day to day dealings....
I am a square peg trying to fit into a round hole.
hence; the 'loner artist evolves.'

I am a loyal friend.
I do not take on many
but those that I do consider to be friends
KNOW they can count on me.

My favorite color combinations are;
black , creamy white and emerald green.
black, creamy white, chinese red and tan/taupe/camel
creamy white, chocolate brown and black with a touch of copper
Charcoal grey , creamy white, yellow, and pale lavender - in a plaid
I think you know i could go on and on.....

Blogging has saved me.

I am willing to do anything that has to be done to mke my new showroom
'The Trade' in Boca Raton a success.

Here are the bloggers that i have chosen for this award:

  15. Renee this was so interesting and well said. I think its so telling how you said blogging has "saved" you, I have heard this from so many people...its amazing isn't it, and I would venture to say its really the people you connect with and interact that make it what it is, and have 'saved" you...dont you think so? Like you, I am a fiercely loyal friend that trait alone will get you far and there is no dbout that you WILL succeed.
    Congrats on your award and to the other recipients...hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving!!

  16. you are one of the reasons I keep blogging YOU HANG IN! Happy Thanksgiving...hugs H

  17. Learning more about you via your blog all along has been wonderful, and now the seven things you shared for the Versatile Blogger award has been icing on the cake.
    Your blog posts are always intuitive and beautiful, but do know this, your sidebar absolutely fascinates me, it is a can't miss every time I come here.
    Thank you for your online friendship, and for extending the honor of the award, I will get on this next opportunity, and hope I do it well. Continued happiness your way, from one who truly identifies with you via your 1, 2, and 4 things! And huge success with your showroom!

  18. TSL

    you certainly deserve the award.
    i look forward to finding out more about you!!!

    thank you fro you remarks on my sidebar....
    i sometimes wonder if anyone sees it or identifies.
    i mean....isn't that what we all want?
    to be a 'part of'?
    and when someone identifies with you....
    you have a sense of belonging.
    so, thank you foe that.
    xxx hugs

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.

Private Paradise
