Does anyone influence your decorating decisions........do you decorate for yourself or what you think would please others...........do you really care how people see your home.
I must admit i can be influenced by comments made by others, which i do appreciate, but i find i must like the ideas or i just wont be happy in the long run, that is one lesson i have learned.
As far as decorating for myself...at this stage in my life i would say i do decorate more for the way our family lives, not saying i dont like what i have but im sure i would buy differently when dh and i become empty nesters, its all about comfort and what is going to stand up to a busy house with added touches of my favorite things.
Do i really care how people see my home.........yes and no.......part of me is house proud and it really does make me feel good when i get compliments from my vistors and then of course there is that side of me that will still continue to do what i want as long as we like it.
would love to hear everyone elses thoughts on this :D
