What Are Your Favorites....

My sweetie and I are sitting in our morning spot having coffee and chatting...I just asked him this question..."If there was suddenly a DESIGN BOSS that told you to choose two elements of accessories to use in creating your homes... "STYLE" ...what would your absolute must haves be"...after clarifying furniture and lighting are a given...his go to objects were no surprise to me....CLOCKS...AND BOOKS....
I have mentioned more then a few times how much both of us love books and clocks...so I wasn't surprised those were his favorites...
I have a book that is all about "Designing with Books"....this question brought others ...like why are books such a natural design element in our homes...for me they provide warmth...knowledge....interest...texture...color....etc...clocks have a daily function helping us keep ourselves on schedule...they dictate our day from the moment we wake...


My favorite choices were....??? ....can you guess....
Yep you guessed it ....PICTURES...I couldn't live in a space without them...especially floral prints.....I know myself...I am inspired by their presence in my life...I could never see myself living with a space untouched with pictures...
The second pick was ...Architectural pieces....this last choice took me some time ...first I thought "pillows"...then maybe all things pink...but upon further consideration it was all in the "SURPRISE"  unexpected salvage brings to our home...anything at all architectural is a must have for me....
I hope you all have a little fun thinking about this question yourselves...it's a great way to understand your own design passions ...I did in the end choose to sneak in some ...PLUCKIE PINK DISHES....a girl has to have some pink around her...don't you think...blessings and big hugs girls till next time....Karena

  1. well, priceless! i like your "think pink." i have also learned to design with books. i would also choose a few children's toys, trains and children's books and anything wooden. i like your "piggie pink" in with the pink floral on the dishes too. this is the month!!

  2. I love pictures in my home, too. ESPECIALLY florals! It is interesting what we choose what to surround ourselves with, isn't it? And, how sometimes, those choices change ove time. xo Diana
