Finding The Fun In Design
I tend to be a bit regimented in my design. Only in the last year would I say I have found the fun in it so to speak. I've become a bit more relaxed and less stuffy about trying the unexpected. The above are photos of stylist Anna Richardson's home. I found her on Decor8 a wonderful blog by Holly Becker who if you haven't checked out before is a definite must read! Richardson's home is fun and whimsical in a way that reminds me of the wonderful silly that should exist within design. How letting the kid in you pick some elements can make a home more comfortable. Homes don't need to be mature and practical. In fact they should have some relaxed elements that remind us not to take ourselves or our belongings to seriously.
I'm not sure I could live with this much colour or belongings, but her home definitely inspires a sense of wonderment. What do you think?
