Do you have a definite viewpoint when it comes to decor? I'm a little embarassed to admit that I am too easily swayed. I see the beautiful minimalist interiors of Scandinavian homes and think, "Oh I must be more tidy, streamlined, minimalist, I need more...more...more white!" Then I see the rustic charm of a farmhouse and think, "Oh I need roosters and rust and chipped furniture!" So I was out and about and saw a gigantic harvest basket sitting upside down on a pile of junk by the side of the road. In a blink of an eye, I picked it up and quick marched it to the car. Never mind that I live in the middle of a large, metropolitan city, I knew I wanted it. Back home, I realized that it was the perfect storage for extra quilts and cushions.
Even better, it's the perfect repository for fluffy white towels.
It doesn't matter that I'm miles away from the nearest fruit orchard or farmhouse. Or that I'm surrounded by suave downtown hipsters.
I'm very happy to have a little country in the city.
