My daughter asked me what I was going to write about today and I said I had no idea. I've been knitting all week and making tremendous progress on several projects but no sewing although I think today we're going to make curtains for my grandson's new bedroom. Jessica and I have spent a lot of time looking at paint chips and fabric samples for their new home. At first glance, our styles seem vastly different so I'm always intrigued when we like the same thing - like the image below - and yet, when you look closer, you can see the parts of me mixed with the parts of her. How fun ! ! !
I love the bold color, the contrast, and the shade of pink in this image. After that, there's too much clutter on the end tables and I'd want the lamps to not sit right in front of the pictures. The furniture has the clean lines I prefer and I have a chair like the one at the desk. I like pop of the throw cushion in the beige chair but I'd nix a few pillows on the bed and most likely get rid of the bench at the end. And I'm not really the chandelier type although with those higher ceilings it works well. We don't have curtains in our house and that's quite normal for a lot of my friends although I see that both curtains and wall paper are making a come-back. Hmm...
I think I mentioned this the other day - my brain is baby mushed - but one thing I've found interesting lately is my need for even less clutter. I'm not sure if it's aging or stress but too much stuff just about turns me inside out. However, less stuff means that each item has to work supremely well in that simple is hard kind of way and it also means that you get tired of those objects sooner. After talking decorating with Jessica, I have the urge - VBG - but not the energy, to redecorate some spaces. Later... maybe... LOL.
Talk soon - Myrna
Grateful - inspiration and information
