Personal touch

I’m leaving Christmas to rest for a while even if it Lucia today back home.¬†Instead, it will be about interiors in varying styles – no extremes – but a bit more about small differences or rather taste, actually.¬†I’m not a daring person when it comes to home decor. I am, after all, a fairly ordinary woman & therefore choose the images that are common but appealing in different ways. You know by now that I’m rather beige & predictable in my taste.¬†I like it in that way, you see!

A home is something we all have in common, where we create our own world … our own space, our way of life & living. Some like to have it as in a magazine, others want to find their own thing. Some build their homes from memories of their childhood. Again, some have no direction, but it gets as it gets, AND usually it becomes good … because it’s about lifestyle.¬†In fact, there are no limitations, more than in our heads. We are taught or influenced by people we spend time with, newspapers we read or TV¬†programs we watch. The older we get, the more often we end up in the style we ar grown up with. It’s like as we sometimes take after habits or behaviors after our parents, despite the fact that we said – I’ll never do this or that. It happens unconsciously, simply. The force of a habit is great.

Now, not that there’s something wrong with that, just a general observation. It’s precisely what makes things so interesting, right?¬†The perfect, or the half-finished, or that which is in constant change. Or the odd or unusual or completely ordinary – the personal touch!
