You can paint wood.
If the wood is beautiful and you adore it in the room, fine.
But if you don’t love it, paint it.
Life is too short to worry about stuff like that.
Yes, you CAN paint any wood. If you want to, you CAN. Ah, so freeing!
You do not have to have a living room sofa.
Many years ago my mom wanted to use four club chairs in her living room instead of a sofa and an interior designer friend pooh poohed the idea. We still chuckle over that piece of advice.
Who says a living room must have a sofa?
If you’d rather use chairs, you CAN!
You CAN use REAL rugs, real art and furniture in a bathroom if you want to.
I’ve used real rugs, real art and real furniture in my kitchens and bathrooms and GASP! they all survived to tell the tale. I love the warmth and personality regular furnishings add to these spaces.
Nothing says I’M BORING, SAFE AND PREDICTABLE like thinking the only options for decorating your bathroom are a matching bath rug and toilet cover. And if you really go all crazy and add the padded toilet seat to the set and you are under 89 years old, please, I beg of you, DON’T. Just don’t. That is all.
