Thoughts About Decorating


Looking at this photo of a serene interior, it occurred to me that it's a perfect response to those who worry that having a lovely home requires lots of money. I feel that having a beautiful home is really about taking care — care in what you place in your home, and how you display it once it's in there. It's also about learning how to keep your eyes open to unexpected sources of beauty, too — here a stray dead branch becomes a sculptural accent, setting off the blue dresser perfectly. Just some random thoughts for a Monday ...

I love this thought. A great example of less being more, without being too minimal.

Couldn't agree more AND it's so much more appealing than buying your stuff at the Leon, the Brick etc.

Agreed. What a beautifully minimal scene. Lovely way to start the week.

I like this color, I've been thinking about painting my little dresser - that looks almost identical to that one..another color. It's white now....this color is NICE!
