One of the things that I love about my business
is I get to play stylist
with new things every week.
Some I like so much in their new spot I decide to hold onto for a while..
others I put in my ebay store quick smart..
I found a wonderful lot of treasures on the weekend,
some that I would have shoved in my cupboard with much gusto in the days where I loved all things pink and rosey..
So when I was taking some photos of all these new found delights..
It got me to thinking how much my decor has changed over the years
Don't get me wrong
I still do love pink and rosey china, linen, furniture..
but not on the grand scale that was..
only here and there
Which in all honesty
makes it more of feature
that jumps out and says "look at me"
To be honest
I think I am going through a bit of a backlash against my earlier frilly shabby chic phase
having said that
I do love a ruffle and frill here and there
Because some of our rooms are starting to head in this direction now..
I found this huge old antique basket
which calls to me more
than some pink and roses
for the moment..
and when I stood back and looked at this room..
it struck me just how pared back it is
and calming in a way..
a clashing of horns
against my earlier hoarding days
I'm enjoying layers and textures
overlapping and changing..
but don't think for a minute
that all of our house is going down this road..
I still do have a cupboard full of this..
