Back at it, I guess.
Wow - so the ball's rolling .. I better run & catch up w/it. *grin*
I am really happy & kinda proud of how much cleaning I have gotten done today!
However, I did get a Pier 1 catalog in the mail today too; and that sure raises the bar on my mental expectations for a "relaxing room" damn; those rooms are hot & sexy & nice. I mean, is there anyway to get those kinds of rooms in ones house without throwing out all of your personal stuff (junk?) and getting all new matching stuff? I mean, I'm sure there is, however... I'm also certain to get that look one does have to get rid of most pointless/small knickknacks, and as well, have a structural, designed system for storing the little things that one does keep.
I mean, my floor is littered with kids toys all the time - I need a toy box right? Why not have a classy looking coffee-table that can be the toy box, oh.. well, just expense.
Why not have matching shelves, and upwards, downwards & spot lighting?
Why not have some art - just a few pieces not a mess of stuff?
why not have .. lessee - well, ambiance that is pleasant & nice?
I think it is within reach, I just have to pick a "theme" and a format of design
- and stick with it; be cohesive.
however, I'm not spending any money on this right now; so it'll just sit in a corner of my thinking and mull around for a bit - I would love to have a relaxing, clutter-free home. *sigh*
