I am so lost! Lost in an overabundance of throw pillows and fluff and white!
This morning I took at look an article titled 'Living Rooms You Will Love' on the Country Living site. I didn't. Take this, for example. Or just take it away. The late Victorians did take it away with the Arts & Crafts and Art Deco movements. I really hope it isn't coming back.
I know it is a trend but I hope it ends soon. I've seen far too many pieces of good old wood furniture indiscriminately painted white and lost forever to their proper place among antiquity. What is the purpose of the washbasin in the floor? I do like the weathered column standing to the side. In the article this one was called Carpenter Gothic. It fits. Why stop now when you have one more piece of gingerbread to put somewhere?
Better, but I wanted to see more. The room all had descriptive tags and I forgot to notice the one for this one. I wish I had since I had trouble defining this room. Country French Traditional? In addition to my other 'plaints, I'm a bit resistant to drum shades. I've noticed this before in other design pages - the oversized look of the drum shade. The originally appeared on taller lamps. That may be what seems wrong to me. Size and proportion. Basic elements of style.
This pleasant country room displays a handsome pottery collection but does not appear cluttered. This time of the year seasonal touches seem most appropriate in country rooms.
Maybe I can compromise.
Country and white and a minimum of throw pillows.
Denoument? I don't have one. I disliked more of the rooms I was supposed to like than I liked. That could be the fault of Country Living or my resistance to current trends.
If by these words I have offended
I hope next time we meet
It will be mended.
Happy Monday. It is another gorgeous day here in my little corner of North Carolina.
