One of my weekly pleasures is the page in the Sun-Herald magazine where they show you a room in someone's house. Not a mocked-up stylist's creation, but a room that someone really lives in and has decorated with their individual taste and style. The range is wide, from scary minimalism to extraordinarily colourful.
Last Sunday's was a colourful, quirky, eclectic one and included this excellent quote from the owner:
I would suggest that people forget about this trend of living so much for other people's judgement. Develop your own style and then fill your home with the things you genuinely love. Even if they appear to look quite disparate initially, a common denominator will emerge - which will be you. (John Macarthur)
And do I agree? Can't you tell?
