My sickness


Do you ever get so utterly tired with your saturated colors and patterns that look like a circus and NASCAR and rainbow all got together and had a love child and that love child is your house and you just want to whitewash and neutralize everything so you remove any and all elements in the room you possibly can to make it seem serene and quite and even grab some neutral premade curtains just to see what they look like even though you know they won’t work because they are too short and then you realize that you have a loud and happy perfectly wonderful 6 year old toile sofa that you will have to work around and your house ends up a big empty looking mess and you are mad at yourself for not being content with all your perfectly fine stuff when people are dying in Haiti?

Yeah, me too.

Kimba has a sickness too, makes me feel better.

    Ah, the post-Christmas,January blahs. Me too– but love the red tennies! And oh, to be content with what we have…a challenge for sure in this “rich” country of ours. Yet your posts always seem to inspire me to love what I have so thank you for that!

  2. I loved this post. I have a similar problem. Do I decorate with a restrained, sophisticated use of color or can I run amuck with hot pint, orange, lime green … all in the same room. The problem is I’m both those people (sophisticated, restrained and crazy!) I’m at a point where it’s time for the next layer of decorating and am stuck on which direction to go. Come check out my new blog to see what I do!
