I cannot remember a time when I did not love to tour homes and see how people decorate. I still get excited as dusk comes, and people have their window treatments open. It gives me a chance to see (snoop? :-) at what is on their walls, tables, etc. What a thrill to grasp a person's "taste" in decor! After years of housecleaning, the dust is not what I notice first; it is the decor.
It is also fascinating to learn what catches your eye. What is it with you - pictures, candles, lighting fixtures, furniture, rugs, flowers, dust. . .? While chatting with a friend, we began discussing a table setting we had seen, and Janelle was gasping a the beauty of the silverware. Silverware?! Oh, yes, they do have those on tables! I hadn't thought to look there! I never would have noticed the silverware. My eyes were glued to the floral masterpiece standing in the middle of the table! My opinion of the silverware? It was. . .ummm. . .silverware! Oddly, thanks to Janelle, I now look at silverware. Sometimes. If I remember. If there isn't a floral masterpiece to which I am glued! :-)
In the next days/weeks, I will be posting several pictures of different rooms. Please comment and let me know the main two or three things that "catch your eye" in each room. This is part of a decorating challenge, so I am anxious to see your comments. I will also be adding my thoughts in the comment section. I want you to view the pictures before you see any opinions! :-) Thanks for your help!
