I would like to quote Stephen Drucker, former Editor in Chief of House Beautiful
(since moved to Town & Country) from the April 2010 issue:
"I don't usually do this, but I'm going to get on my soapbox this month: There's a mean streak creeping into the design world. Hurling around your opinions is part of the fun of design, but there is a line. Decorating is not a blood sport. The less confident should not play it safe just to avoid criticism. As much as I like decorating, there some things I like even more: individuality, and an open mind".
