DESIGN: The True Cost of Interior Design

What would you guess this room, designed by Charles Faudree, cost?

The Skirted Roundtable tackles the true cost of using an interior designer. Join Linda, Megan, and Joni as they discuss what things really cost and why custom design can get a little pricey!

BLOGGING: Criticism on the Blogs

The Buckingham's original house, designed by veteran Madeline Stuart, shows two coffee tables - one of which ended up in their new house.

Join the Skirted Roundtable this week as we discuss Blogging - Is it alright to criticize? When is criticism too much or too mean? Are the magazines off limit?
