i think i try my best to avoid a cookie cutter interior (when it looks like it came exactly out of a catalog or showroom). i love seeing people who mix things with a bit of character & charm their homes. while i slowly remove the mish from the mosh, it takes time to collect, recycle & save $ for certain things. sometimes i find it by accident. sometimes i find it from my travels. no matter how long it takes, its a work-in-progress. it’d be a different story if i had a gazillion dollars to just buy it off the showroom & antique stores. oh well, that won’t be happening anytime soon. ha!
