Second, I am obsessed with this feature in the latest Rue Magazine. And not just because Julie Pierce's place is totally nails (which it definitely is). More, I absolutely love every single word of her interview. I freak out all the time about how long it's taking me to decorate our house. I mean, it's been almost a year and a half and we still don't have a dining room table (or a sectional). That is, we don't have THE dining room table. Julie's wise words ease my anxiety....Not to mention the "final product" that is her home. Pretty amazing, if you ask me.
In some respects, it's frustrating to be so particular about what I put in our home. Why can't I just settle for good enough? Or good enough for now? But what it ultimately comes down to is what you and I both already know...I venture to guess that we all get great, great joy out of surrounding ourselves with things that we love, right? And I love unique pieces that tell a story. Lucky for me, most of the time those things are extremely reasonably priced so the benefit of my patience is twofold. Sweet!
However, it might take another year and a half to finish. Not so sweet. I guess I don't know what I'd do if I were ever "done" anyway...start over? Anyone out there ever finish their home? Tell us your secrets!!
Happy Friday, all! ox
