The Kuotes is dedicated to publishing design-focused content that we believe to be in good taste and in the style of today. Our content also stems from our own personal design aesthetic. We realize that you may not agree with all of our design ideas and advice. We love talking and debating about all things interior design! We encourage discussion. However, we reserve the right to withhold any mean-spirited, offensive comments that do not align with our belief in positivity and celebration of design work.
