Are you doing what you love?

We have all heard the sayings. "Do what you love." "Love what you do and you will never work a day in your life." "Do what you love and the money will come." I believe it is critical to do something that we love doing, but finding that certain something isn't always so easy.

Charles Faudree was an amazing interior designer who specialized in the style of French Country and he obviously was doing what he loved. He passed away November 27, 2013 at the age of 75. He will be missed greatly.

I have two of his interior design books and would love to have the other books that he wrote as well.




If you have ever spent any time looking at his designs in his books, his numerous publications in every major magazine in the country, then you know that there was love in everything that he designed.

Are you doing what you love? How did you find your passion?  I would love for you to share with me what you are doing and how you found your passion.

  1. Charles Faudree was a very talented designer, whose style influenced my own decorating when I was collating ideas for my own home, which is a mix of French Country and English Cottage. I loved the way he used colour and pattern and light. He will be missed.

    Lovely post, Patty.

  8. I loved his books, his Cavaliers, his love of red, the way he dressed, and because he seemed so very nice. I did not know that he had passed away. I am so sorry. I will get his books out and look at them all again and think of the people he made happy with his talent.

  9. I did not know about his passing! That's terrible! I've always loved his style and his books. I am truly shocked to hear this news. I wonder if it was a sudden death. I hadn't heard that he was ill.

  10. "Love what you do and you'll never work a day in your life." is so true. If you are doing the things you do with real passion and enthusiasm then every day is so callenging and full of joy - everyone should make this expierience. Most people are unsatisfied with their jobs and that is not healthy at all.
