Each room in a house can be traditional so long as there’s one outlandish element. I like each space to have a wow factor.
— Katie Ridder (quoted on CountryLiving.com)
Isn’t “outlandish” a fascinating word choice? It takes “wow factor” to a different level. I’m going to start asking myself the question — “What one element is outlandish?” — about my projects. This morning, I’m attending the 2014 Room to Bloom Symposium, a premiere fundraiser for Charlotte’s renowned Mint Museum, and Katie is the guest of honor. I’ll be sharing Katie’s insights on Twitter and Instagram @tracizeller, so follow me there for more “words to the wise” this Wednesday!
I am overwhelmingly grateful for your kind words after Sunday’s post. Merci.
