quote

I just followed Cro to here. and he had written a comment worth sharing, it is so good.

"One can usually tell the home of an ex-art-student. We tend to appreciate objects for their individual worth and beauty, rather than stick to accepted interior-design concepts."


Yesssss!!!!!


Thankyou

so true! i like to describe my home as eclectic... it's definitely a mix of modern, antiques, art and LOTS of POTS! (some would say too many)

Not just ex-art students.

what is too many pots ?!!

Perhaps, Zhoen, those with art in their hearts and souls.

nothing disturbs me more than a house that is too clean,too neat and too put together.
And nothing makes me fell more at home than art and a house that says welcome,excuse out dust,pick up our pots and no we don't mind that you want to pick up a book- cup of tea????

going through a massive overhaul here and interesting to see the things that found their way back into the house. Some rather odd things nobody else will value but me.......... :)
