Yesterday I was on a phone interview with the most incredible editor of a home decor magazine.
(total aside…..seriously….I have always wanted to drop that casually in a conversation)
And she asked me a question that I had never thought of.
The wonderful, incredible, funny, highly intelligent, creative person who reads this blog.
(total aside number 2…..I described you exactly like that)
She asked me if everyone who read the blog liked farmhouse style.
I had to think about the answer.
I paused…..and then…..I told her…..no.
I told her we were all different……some of us liked contemporary or traditional or industrial or shabby chic or French country or Downton Abbey or coastal decor.
All of us…..different….and yet in so many ways…..we are the same.
Because at the heart of each of us……is a true love for home and family.
Whatever our style….whatever our design aesthetic….we have the same goal…..
…..a longing to create a retreat….an oasis….a safe haven from the chaos and rocky shores of life.
A place we can call home.
PS My son listened to the entire phone interview and when I got off he looked at me and rolled his eyes and said…..
….Has anyone ever told you that you talk like a Hallmark movie?”
I knew one day…..all those years of watching happily ever after would pay off.
PPS If you are looking for a little retreat inspiration….I’m posting some fun ideas over at the Lamps Post blog today.
