A few days ago I got a comment from someone asking me if I ever stop decorating and that it was a little too much. I had to laugh because I do not intend to stop until the day that I die! My family and I love our house and the color. We feel happy and energized, but also relaxed and cozy. Our house is not the place we go just to sleep- it is the place that we grow in and learn&play and laugh& love and cry in. It is our place.
We each need to decorate our home for our family. Each family is different- that is what makes the world go 'round! That is how God made us! That is why we have architects and doctors and writers and mathematicians....we are all different and fill a different need.
I have an easy time being myself in my art and decor- that part comes easy. It is a bit harder to be myself in all that I say and do. But as I grow older, it is becoming a little easier to say things because I feel they need to be said instead of saying only what others want to hear or expect to hear.
All this rambling to say- please don't let someone else tell you how your house must be decorated. This also means that is someone really likes their walls bare- that I must not criticize either! We are all different, thank the Lord!
Just one last note: if you want to see a house calmly decorated in subdued colors- you better not come and visit this blog- it will only get brighter as the days go on.......:)
