Going wild while decorating!

Something like what we used to have!

As a kid, I shared a room with my younger brother. When a room became available, I was given my separate room but never had the autonomy to make any changes to it.

My first experience of decorating my space was after I got married. I had full control over what I deemed right within the budget. I took the input from my husband but majority decisions were mine. And I went quite overboard with it.

It’s not that I spent a lot of money, but I the décor I chose was very elaborate and over the top. Three layers of curtains, pelmets and whatnots! I also bought a lot of decoration pieces, wall hangings, etc. it was quite a busy space.

I remember how excited I felt when someone visited and showed them proudly my interior decorations. I guess it was excusable as it was my first attempt at it.

It’s gradually that I have downsized my home to something more reasonable. Now I feel less is more and something elegant is better than something ostentatious.

I wish I had photos to share with you of the contrast from then to now.

      1. I agree with that. I used to rearrange/decorate every few months when much younger; now, I rearrange etc when the seasons change, and a bit at year’s end (that last one is tradition really and not for the sake of decorating)

  1. Most of my home is what I call ‘Early-in-law’. Though throughout the years we have made some new perchaises.
    OUr entry way is a gallery of artwork. But some rooms from earlier renovations still have bare walls.

    I love books. So I have many shelves, salt and pepered with brick a brack. Though even some of that has been downsized. I like the notion that less is more. But haven’t quite gotten there yet 😉

    Good luck. Live in the rooms you choose. Cheers, Jules
