Simplicity

Image from my home!


So often when I am asked for design advice I give same answer "keep it simple".

There are so many over designed houses, filled with what is the 'in' or trendy thing at the time.

Why decorate to trends? 

Decorate for your taste and your lifestyle, that way everybody won't have the same 'in' product,
print or style that is done to death!

Keep it simple and everything will shine.

Very very true.
You are so right, its all about a plan or blue print as I like to call it. Look back at this list/plan/blue print when you are tempted and you will not waste your time or money on trendy things.
The console in your blog looks so right now but could have been done years ago.
The only trend it follows is classic elegance.
Loved you rooms A-M mentioned in today blog.
warm wishes,
Daryl
