Well... this blog has been created by a frustrated decorating fanatic at her wits end . Call this a sort of release mechanism and method of documenting my never ending attempts in creating my Dream home.... I love to decorate! I have all my life . It is an impulse. It is for me all about creating a feeling in a space. Inside or out..creating a space with a energy complimentary to your own...a place you sigh and feel relaxed and at home in . It's a way of self soothing somehow...I do it as some do cooking or gardening or reading and shopping ( well ... ok the shopping does goes hand in hand with decorating ) I change my spaces all the time , but my style I feel remains the same.
I have images swirling about my mind of creamy light colors , clean serene rooms full of light and gorgeous flowing linen fabrics...soft downy pillows to sink into everywhere , Four poster beds with soft drapes all around, hidden reading nooks inside and out..Garden breezes drawing in floral fragrances from a English cottage garden.....A Romantic Coastal cottage...but in the "real world" there are always challenges .Challenges that surface and demand to be addressed...things that make you compromise from your original plan and in compromising...you find out other avenues and ideas you never would have thought of...and these compromises turn out to be not so bad after all!
One of my biggest challenges is Jujube. ..This Blog staeted becase of Jujube...... my Jack Russell (one of 3 dogs in this household and my most challenging) always trys my patience and ruins some of my best efforts and how I manage to overcome his plotting against me . ( yes he plots I see it in this face) Don't get me wrong I love him...so I learn to adjust accordingly and learn some things along the way!! ( the dog whisperer would have a field day with me)
I think this will be very therapeutic for me...and plus provide a space for some of my decorating ideas which I have been most pleased with, they will have a home for me to view on occasion..even thought they may be short lived or inevitably changed to adjust to Jujube's existence here at our home. This will be a great forum for exchanges of ideas with other decorators on how to decorate with animals in a space.
My Favorite spot by the Beach trail!
