Red Door's passion is creating beauty in people's lives
As a child I use to go to my friends’ homes and rearrange the furniture in their bedrooms, hang things on the walls and happily create what I thought was a beautiful space. My creative Mom would volunteer her time and efforts freely to friends and family to organize, paint, sew and move heavy things for the pure joy that she got as a result of making a space inviting and fabulous. If this was a “sickness” we were happy to have it.
