False Pride

False Pride & This Fish Out Of Her Water

“Learning to live on less pride has been a great investment in my future.”
Katerina Stoykova Klemer

I started out part-time and am now working full time!!

Ever since I arrived in Maine, I have tried to fit in.
(and I am beginning to)
I wasn't sure about how to find my niche in design up here,
I came to the conclusion that I should understand the area 
and the people first.

Only then will

and ...
It's coming .... slowly.
But, it is coming.

I am enjoying the ride.
(wasn't sure if I would)

I never thought I would be working where I am working now.
Orange is my new Black.

I am still struggling with blogging,
I am rediscovering myself...who will I be here?
and blogging topics are going to be really different.

Like there is the coolest coastal shack on an island that I want to post
It's just so different than what I used to post about.
It will,
it will come to me 
and I will begin posting as frequently as I used to post.

all my BEST

  1. Renee, I for one and looking forward to seeing your new style, designs and environment. You are starting over and things are going to be different but wonderful.

    Good luck! We are all cheering for you!

  2. Dear Renee,
    I am here for you.You will be blogging about whatever interests you in Maine!I am always blogging on something different. Right now I have some homes that are in the Hudson River Valley and New England.
    I just want you to be happy. As you know I have swallowed my pride in the last couple of years!

    Feature: “Love Where You Live”

  3. I have no doubt that you will accomplish whatever you chose, Renee! I am proud of you!
    Keep on keeping up!

  4. One step at a time, right Renee? Glad you are slowly getting used to the lifestyle there, that you are working, thinking of things unique to Maine to write about....think about it...these are all good things!
    And different is GOOD! I like diversity and cannot wait to hear about your Maine trials and tribulations! Cheers to new beginnings, coastal shacks and the color orange :)

  5. Hello Renee -- Post what you want to post about, regardless of whether it fits in with your usual style. That's what your readers want: the real you! Reggie

  6. ...and we all are looking forward with great interest to your posts.

  7. Looks like my comment did not post, so I will reiterate...We are looking forward with great interest to your new posts.

  8. This is a great post, I am proud of you. That article as well.
    You get better with AGE. love Mamma xxxxx

  9. It is great to hear you are getting your Moxie back. I am proud of you. All will be revealed, and it will be for the better!
    I'm with you :-)

    1. D,
      it's funny you should say that.
      MOXIE is the soda that everyone drinks in Maine.
      it's their COKE.


  10. I think we are always better human beings when we've had to eat a humility sandwich from time to time. I vote with Reggie. Write what you want to write about. We'll be here cheering you on.

  11. Hello my dear sweet Renee I've been missing in action for so long that I wonder if any one remembers me!!! So pleased to read that you are working full time and that you are settling into the Maine life (always knew you would!)I'm house sitting at the moment, run out of books to read and hey I've come back to the blog world! I've missed you but it has been just too hard to even turn the computer on let alone anything else but I do instagram, do you? sending you all my love and promise to keep in touch Jules xxx



Thanks for participating!!

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
