Design Quote for Thursday

Photo from real estate in Europe. This one is only 985.000 Euros.
Understatement is extremely important and crossing too many 't's' and dotting too many 'i's' make a room look overdone and tiresome. One should create something that fires the imagination without over emphasis.

In my world, I have to face the reality that my decor will always fit around two medium sized dog and a bad kitty (she's not really bad ALL the time) in an old country home.

That look is so beautiful but in my place it would embelished with muddy paw prints that come in pairs.

Meanwhile, I can enjoy the pretty pictures.
