    1. I think this comment is insulting. Naomi's work is far from DIY...It's actually the prettiest decorating I've seen in a long time. It's soft, feminine and very creative...and everything looks delicious.
      So regardless of what you meant to say, or the fact that you have an inablility to articulate yourself, this comment wasn't' nice...

  8. Dear Naomi,
    Do you ever teach in the United States? I love your beautiful designs. They are soft, feminine, and very sophisticated. I dream that I could be able to accomplish anything close to what you do. Please consider a trip to the United States to teach a class.
