This weekend, we did something we have never done before.
We decorated. We’re adults now . We decorate things.
Over the last 10-11 years, I can’t say we have ever done this successfully and I’m actually not even sure that this attempt has been more successful than any previous.
Reasons why we have never decorated:
– No space . ( Yes , space matters. And yes, I have seen that video where the entire house folds into itself . No-one has time for that).
– One of us has no interest. And I don’t mean a lack of motivation or drive . I mean a happiness in just living with whatever there is, wherever it’s placed.
– The other one of us has a complete lack of talent in decorating. This person is me.
The last reason is big .
I have read blogs, magazines, books , I’ve been to Ikea, I’ve signed up to Pinterest, I’ve picked up a free copy of ”House Beautiful” magazine that I saw on the train (someone left it behind). But give me a vase and I will put it in the middle of the living room , on the floor.
So the learning continues. Next, we’re attempting to maybe put up some pictures. It may take some years to decide on a frame or the layout but watch this space !
