Since it's Friday, I thought I'd have a little fun with this post!
There is definitely something to be said for our own sense of adventure in life; and how that correlates with decorating our own home. I tend to have an adventurous personality and I'm not afraid to take risks. I think good design usually pushes the boundaries a little (or maybe a lot!) My interiors are never homogenous. I like to layer rooms by mixing the old with the new, the high end custom piece with the inexpensive retail find, tossing the distressed piece of furniture into a room that is otherwise quite polished, blending various furniture/metal finishes together to create a comfortable feel, a "wow" factor for every room I design is a must and ultimately creating a home that fits the homeowners like a couture suit...perfectly!
Thought I'd show a little of my adventurous personality in hopes that you get to better know me. Here I am in South Africa getting ready for my dive with Great White Sharks.
Climbling into the cage with my husband.
We saw very large Great Whites...about two to three feet from our cage!
Here are a few samplings of what we saw up close, all while in an open Jeep on a safari in South Africa. My husband took all of these photos!
Take notice of the baby monkey holding onto the mother's belly while she is walking.
I decorate with a fearless sense of how I pull my interiors together. My interiors are not over the top or even infused with lots of color, but rather refined and higly influenced by the color palettes you see in nature. I am not afraid to leave my comfort zone with how I live life or how I decorate. What are your thoughts about one's personality playing into one's interior design or decorating?
Now, just let me conclude with this thought...I would scream, fall over, knock my head on something and pass out if I were to see a mouse...I'm terribly frightened of them...seriously! I'd rather see a tiger in my kitchen than a mouse. When we go to the Bronx Zoo my husband trys to get me into the mouse exhibit with our children...I tell him I have to stay outside and "watch" the stroller...wink, wink!!
Have a wonderful weekend!
