Hi! I’m Deb. I live in the northwest suburbs of Chicago where I decorate, paint, photograph, design things, and write about design from around the world. Many DIY projects that I share with you here have a global spin.
I was very happy to be in Marrakech! A design, decorating and shopping paradise! I may have bought a few dozen too many tassels.
And India! If you visit around this blog, you’ll see I have close ties to India.
Before this blog was called the Nomadic Decorator, it was called “India pied-à-terre*” for four years. This blog was originally about the construction and decorating of our “second home” apartment in Chennai, India. I’m interested in cultures and design from all around the world, and even our apartment in India is decorated with things from everywhere. So I changed the blog name to better fit what I share here.
My true dreams — the things that I love to do — are always about travel, design and creating and making things. So I talk about that here at Nomadic Decorator. Design ideas and many DIYs that I share here are inspired by global style. And in our house, my decorating style is to mix up things from around the world. I’m lucky and grateful to have the chance to do decorating DIYs on opposite sides of the planet.
That gold skeleton key there is the actual key to the very special main door of the India pied-à-terre* — how cool a key is that?!
