Resolution #1: Add Color
I think over the past couple of years, I've strayed away from color because I didn't want my home to become too trendy.
But lately, I slowly want to add bits of colors; especially, colors blue, green, and do I even dare to say a tiny bit of red?? I want my interiors to be bright and fresh, but, all the while…..remaining true to my traditional and classical sensibilities.
Resolution #2: Add more slips.
Slipcovers are a fantastic way not only to add a dose of color, but to inject some pattern and softness to a room. And, if you find a great seamstress, many times they can be affordable. When my home is all said and done, I won't be surprised if I have slips in every room!!
Resolution #3: Grow my blue and white collection.
I love blue and white porcelain and I really love it when it is displayed as a collection. I'd really like to add a couple of more pieces to my collection this year so I can group them like below. But, first, I also need to find a secretary/hutch. :)
Hi Dad….if you ever tire of the Delft vase, you know where to reach me! Ha! We also plan on getting a contractor out to price out some bigger renovations we'd like to start planning. It's something we won't start this year, but perhaps in the next year or two. Well, there you have it……let's hope 2015 is a fulfilling one! Happy New Year!
