Now I can’t live without this! What’s happening? Is it old age? Is there a cure?
I agree. I’m experiencing a major flip-flop of style desires. I think the solution is to just buy pieces you love without a strict decorating scheme (although some scheming is necessary for sure 🙂 and somehow they’ll all work together to deliver a space that reflects you.
At least that’s what I’m hoping!
The other option is having a minimalist room to go and breathe when the urge takes over. Then back out into the chaos and color when you’ve had your fill.
pink’s right. i LOVE the table in the second picture.
I love the Scott Van Dyke shot, I checked out his website its great he is very talented.
that is too funny…I am actually the opposite. I used to love kitchy antiques and now less is definitely more. I love the minimalist aesthetic and the serenity it brings. I am in the process of moving and have de-cluttered by a significant amount. The less I bring with me the better I feel. I am starting to think that my house will feel very spacious…which is fine with me.
OMG I totally understand. This post made me LOL. Sometimes I wonder if I will become everything I said I’d never be: “Turn that music down!” “Slow down – this is a neighborhood!”
Oh I’m the opposite.I love old and lots of colletions around the house, but I get more in love with clean and sharp designs.Maybe I should go between? Eclectic?
Ha! I know exactly what you mean Jo! Such a dilemma! I love clean, stark lines and emptiness. When I see a minimalist room done well, I still swoon.
But I also love beautiful things and like most people, enjoy hunting for objects. But when I have too many, I panic and must purge.
I think when we love decor, there are stages we go through.
i love 70’s styles the most because they embrace minimal and fantastical elements, and intense color so well, with great panache, i think….i love your retro pics.
That’s it orangered! The minimal and the fantastical!! I have a new argument to use now. Thanks!
