Step up on soapbox.. Tap Tap, "Is this thing on?"
I recently read a post on a (popular) blog that talked about how you SHOULD decorate your house, and a few decorating "rules" BLECK!... I was infuriated after I read it, Cause guess what!? WE ARE ALL INDIVIDUALS!!! And we should express our INDIVIDUAL style as such!!! (unless you are a hoarder, then there is therapy for that lol)
Me?: I don't care if it doesn't match, if it's not symmetrical, or in some cases if it's broken!
Here is another tidbit about me I bet you didn't know... I studied Interior Design in High School and College.. I even won some awards! Crazy thing is.. it cramped my style for a while!
Trying to follow all the "rules" I lost MY creative expression.
So I quit! I quit trying to follow all the rules.. And I just let me be me.
(However.. if you are staging your house to sell it, following basic design guidelines is a good idea, because those 'rules' are pleasing to almost everybody)
Anyway.. no offense intended.. I just hope you are true to what YOU like... and if you like me, and you like my style, and you aren't going to judge me cuz I don't follow the rules.. then stick around my friend, because I am sure you will like what's in store!Just thought I would share some pics of my Living Room..
Quite a difference in Looks... and smells!
I will be sharing more pictures of the rest of this room soon, but I am in the process of re-decorating it :)
My favorite lil corner..
