The disabled girl was named Toph, and a common joke in the series was that Toph was blind but so good at what she did — earthbending — that her compatriots often forgot that she was actually disabled. Toph was tough, and she was skilled, and she was smart, and she didn’t define herself by her disability. It was a part of her, but it wasn’t all of her, or even the most important part of her. Meeting Autumn Cueller is like meeting Toph. It’s easy to forget, even with visible and audible evidence, that Autumn navigates the world in a different way than most of us do. Those close to her know that’s the way Autumn wants it. “She is one of the most resilient people that I’ve ever met... “She doesn’t want anybody taking advantage of her, she doesn’t want anybody taking it easy on her, and she wants to do everything just like everyone else can. The 17-year-old Carson High School junior is excellence in action: she has a 4. 3 GPA, she tutors youth at the Boys and Girls Club, and she jumped at the chance to participate in the club’s Glee Club program. She loves to sing and be on stage, in the same way that she loves math and science and reading: wholeheartedly and enthusiastically, with a positive outlook that is refreshing.

Entire desks, dining room tables, bedroom sets and leisure chairs have been assembled from the lowly pallet. For décor that demands more comfort and the appearance of upward mobility, refinish sturdy wood furniture like bureaus, chests, tables and chairs and repaint, or stain and finish, to get an inexpensive furnishing start. For good pieces, changing the upholstery color or fabric, or just covering worn spots with a table cloth or length of fabric, can make them service-worthy again, she noted. Including professional design advice in re-decorating does not have to be cost prohibitive. “You can use a decorator as little or as much as you want,” Grandmontagne said, an hour to select paint colors, or for an extensive re-design of the entire house. She tells clients who want to “get rid of everything and start anew” to first try moving pieces around between rooms. There may be a better place for that tired chest-of-drawers, like taking the mirror off and repurposing it as a dining room buffet. Grandmontagne is from the “mix and match” school of interior design and recommends keeping those eclectic pieces from your grandmother. For other furnishings, consider functionality and how each piece contributes to the intended use of the room, adding or.
