Away we go!

Funny how much our decorating tastes change as we age and change, I know mine have. In my twenties it was Asian style inspired by a piece of fabric, in my thirties it was traditional once I had become a real adult. In my forties it was country due to the fact we had purchased an 18th century rambling house in the country. Now that I’m about to embark on a whole new decade, which makes me cringe and creak a little, I find my tastes changing once again. Now I’m leaning toward European objects that are old, centuries old, with a crusty edge. I want things to be authentic, well, as authentic as my pocketbook will allow and I like big, oversized objects that have clean lines, simple but elegant things.

Who of us doesn’t love stuff? Things? Objects? It’s innate, we can’t help but to gather, if we don’t collect and decorate with objects then all we really have is an empty room. Once I reached my forties the clutter had to go but once again it’s slowly creeping back in to decorate the corners of my world.

As we, my husband and I, go about renovating our old farmhouse I thought I’d start a blog to ponder out loud. Have you ever noticed how much easier a project is when talked about with others? While I’ve done design work for others, working with my own home is always so difficult, perhaps because it isn’t all about me and I’m too personally involved. So as I go about trying to decorate my home I hope you’ll follow along. I hope you enjoy and I look forward to many new friends~

I feel like we have been on the same journey. You are a very good writer, you express yourself much better than I do. John Saladino is one of my favorites. Crusty, old, fabulous European inspired things make my heart beat faster. I think we could be good friends. Good luck! Mona
