I have something of a multiple personality disorder when it comes to home design.
Do any of you have this problem?
I LOVE old, classical, frilly, carved pieces.
I LOVE homes with fresh, white walls, clean-lined furniture, and modern prints.
I LOVE dark wood and textured, jewel-toned walls.
I LOVE chandeliers.
I LOVE bright, printed fabrics.
I LOVE homes with NO CLUTTER and NOTHING on the walls.
I LOVE homes filled with floral arrangements, huge light fixtures, and fantastically fancy frames.
I could go totally baroque-crazy, and fill my home with leggy, velvet furniture, and hang 60 gilded frames on the walls of my tiny hallway, and at the same time, I could be blissfully at home living in flat in Denmark that is stripped so bare, you'd think the place was uninhabited.
So, could it even be possible that I am a modernist/minimalist with a deep love of all things baroque? Hmmmm. That would be an interesting combination... and a huge oxymoron at that.
Can a person be truly happy living in a state of oxymoron?
I think I just might.
Why am I going on and on about this? Because I have been looking at bed sets lately, and I am LOVING the sleek, modern look of platform beds. Don't know how I can make them work in my little 70s split level per se... but hey, it might be worth a shot.
