I have a confession to make…
January 21, 2012
I talk a good game Modern this Rustic that, white, white white… the truth is most of my work and my own home fall into a category (see above and below) I think I’ll call eclectic chic. It’s traditional at its core, but there is a layered up vibe that is both bohemian and “decoratorish”. It’s not necessarily my favorite look but it’s my comfort zone and allows me to not have to edit as much as I should. THIS IS BIG people! I’m introducing you to the man behind the curtain… the great OZ. If I had multiple homes one would be a spare modern box and one would be rustic funky and one would be traditional/transitional, but I don’t. I have one home and it’s a layered up funky mix like the images in this post. AND, I’m comfortable in it. I love my stuff and I’d rather be surrounded by the things I love – yes I LOVE THINGS, I know that’s bad… but I do – that to be so critical about what I allow into my home. Truth is I’m editing all day for clients, why would I want to edit when I get home. More is more people, and it can become overwhelming, you stop seeing things because there is too much to look at, but if you love it… find a place for it, cherish it and the memories that might be attached to it and do what feels right to you in your home. That is what really makes a house a home. XO
p.s. the bottom 3 images are my house.
