But what do I know?
Today is all about stripes. When the Mister and I lived in Boca Raton many years ago, we bought a house that had a very small dining room with very high ceilings. I came up with the brilliant idea of putting a wallpaper with vertical stripes on the walls. When the paper hanger finished his job, he told me that he developed a migraine from being in the room. I told him that I would take that as a compliment and left out a tip when I wrote his check.
Boy, was he right. It looked like a room from Alice in Wonderland. The worst part of it was that I didn't want to let on to the Mister that I needed Dramamine every time I walked into the room. That was one of many decorating mistakes that I made in my homes across the country. Lucky for me, the Mister got transferred a lot.
Today, I offer you photos of rooms that wear their stripes well.
Love this settee.
One of my favorite books.
Love this whole room.
If the Mister would buy me a beach house, I would decorate one of the 12 baths just like this one.
There's always one smart acre that takes things too far...
What was your biggest decorating mistake?
Until next time...
