I started looking at my own family room. And it, too, is a sea of beiges and browns, with shots of dark red. It must look really bland to most people. But I love it. I find the tones rich and calming. Soft suede and velveteen and leather and dark wood are yummy to me.
It is, as Kim also talked about, what the items represent to us that matters. And if you read this blog (as all three of you do), you know how much I treasure items from the past—especially those that once belonged to the people whose lives brought me here.
And then, that was my last post. Talk about a cliffhanger! I'm sure you've been on the edge of your seat for nine months!
Believe it or not, although cross-stitch had been completed, the full project wasn't finished until just a few weeks ago.
As of yesterday, the wall I have been dreaming of for years is now up. I have been saving this wall for this project and while it isn't completely completed, at least it is up.
And I LOVE it. It makes me so happy every time I walk into that room.
And as I think about it, that room, too, is a sea of browns.
I guess that's just what I love.
NOTE: I will post just about that project in the next day or two. I promise. (No, really. I promise. It needs it's own post).
