Are you fancy AF? Yeah, me neither. Wanna trick your neighbors into thinking you are anyways? Good plan. Traditional stone and architectural pieces can be cool and timeless at the same time. You might be in your sweat shorts, eating Cheetos and trying to figure out which Golden Girl you are just behind that big mahogany door (Not a hypothetical situation/ Highly recommended) but for all your neighbors know, you’re in there taking afternoon tea and writing the next great American Novel.
Sophia. It’s Sophia.
Are you one of those mid-century nuts? Good for you. Personally, the bright colors and playful shapes make me want to don a black beret and read depressing poetry in a dark club. I tend toward the most cheerless of aesthetics available. But I get it… some people are happy. Most modern worshipers of this iconic era aren’t afraid to be fun and a little kooky. And that’s kinda bad-ass.
You don’t actually have to live seaside to feel easy and breezy. Matter of fact… we live in Wisconsin and if anybody deserves to feel the casual tranquility of that coastal life, it’s us. We get 2 and a half days of summer and the mosquitoes are gonna eat your face off on one of those. So no matter where you call home, kick up your feet and feel the breeze in your hair and embrace a deep, deep sense of denial. Because winter is coming. It’s always coming.
So I guess what I’m saying is, don’t check your style at the front door. You can set the tone for your personal tastes before you even step inside. There is so much time to enjoy the great indoors. Let’s all take advantage of mother nature… the original boss bitch designer. And let’s do it in style.
