I believe pattern is created by the ‘stuff’ of life. So I like to have a more quiet backdrop. I walk into a room and imagine you wearing red, you having a friend over, the food you’re serving, the books, the artwork, the children, the pets — all those things, I’m aware of in the beginning. I love having less in a room, but if you can afford it, get the finest.
Life with twins, triplets or more definitely creates lots of pattern! Of course, that may make it more difficult to afford the finest … but we can all enjoy beauty. Stylists have coined a phrase for that undecorated-yet-gorgeous look: a “beautiful mess.”
What’s your favorite “beautiful mess?” I just know you won’t say Legos.
