Where Home is First and Foremost on the Mind
Mmmmm, how do address this without hurting someone’s feelings? Must be delicate…er. Oh ok here goes. I was just sent photos of a friend’s nursery, and want ever so terribly to tell her it is just not working. I adore her for going out on a limb, especially since she is usually a pretty serious trend follower. But, this time she decided to go it alone, and unfortunately it is missing a link to unify the colours.
She has painted the walls a sage green, perfect for those who do not know the sex of the child they are carrying, or those who want to be gender neutral even if they do know. I understand that, respect it, and if I were having a child would follow this lead. However, she then brought in baby blue for all the bedding, curtains, and other soft furnishings. Nowhere, other than the walls has she placed sage green. There is no trace of it running through a baby blanket, or being used as the matting on a framed picture. Nothing, nada, zilch.
Listen, I know it is not that big of a deal, but I want t fix it with all my might I want to fix it. In fact, that is exactly what I intend to do, by giving her a baby gift that does in fact have sage and blue in it. Then I will be able to sleep at night again.
A love for ones home can exist on many different levels. To ensure that you home is one that you adore so much that you actually crave it, proper design and decorating decisions must be made. There are many layers involved, and much love incorporated. But the outcome is a place that everyone is drawn to, and one that feels just right.
