Here is another snippet of great information I found while researching.  Check out the link I found it on to the right called You Are My Fave.

Undecorate Open

The title of Christiane Lemieux’s book, which she wrote with Rumaan Alam, “Undecorate” ($40, Clarkson Potter), is a bit deceptive. While the 20 spaces shown may not be “decorated” in the traditional sense, they are very stylish.

“These people do have very sophisticated taste,” said Ms. Lemieux, the founder and creative director of DwellStudio. “And they are constantly tweaking their interiors. Now, with interior design, there is no start and finish. People are always changing, sharing, getting their friends to weigh in on it.”

Ms. Lemieux credits the Web in large part for the phenomenon of interiors that evolve and reflect the owners in a stylishly imperfect way: “It used to be the people with the super-cool eclectic houses went to estate sales and got a first look at everything. Now you have access to a very cool flea market, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The popularity of that eclectic interior is because it’s achievable now.”
