"I would rather die of passion than of boredom." --Vincent van Gogh
True artists know themselves; they are not afraid of their own creative passion and energy. They have something to say! Similarly, real design style has a center, a core, a nexus, a purpose. In design as in life, there is nothing more boring than a space which says nothing about it's inhabitants. Successful designers know themselves and their clients. They have an authentic style, something that connects them in life. Those connections create more connections, and the resulting ideas create more ideas.
