Decorating is sort of a visceral experience. There’s a certain amount of science that goes into it but at the end of the day it’s all about your gut. And the size of your car! You have to have room to carry the right piece home!
Jim and I just updated the foyer. We weren’t planning this particular bit of redecorating…it just kind of happened. A trip to Pier 1 also just kinda happened right before. We both fell in love with this table (technically I fell in love with the 6 foot tall wooden giraffe first but he talked me off the ledge) and it fit in the car. It was serendipity or something.
It would have been serendipitier if we didn’t have 40 foot tall walls in the foyer and no way to paint them. I’m not a white wall kinda girl. But I am an ‘afraid of heights’ kinda girl. Fear won out…the walls stay white.
