Our Story by Jeanette JOY Fisher

When Katie was little, she fell through our kitchen floor while helping wash the dishes. The flooring in our 1878 Queen Anne Victorian needed to be replaced along with the sub-flooring. We discovered painted over cardboard walls, newspaper insulation, and frayed extension cord wiring. After my husband and son rebuilt the kitchen, I added paint, wallpaper, and decorations. The kitchen felt all wrong! You can imagine my husband’s response. This was the beginning of my research into the psychology of interior design.
