LESS IS MORE!
Okay, who first said that? + about what was he speaking?
This, the Farnsworth House, was designed by van der Rohe.
It sits on the side of the Fox River just west of Yorkville, Illinois.
For my own decor, when it comes to ‘less is more’,
I am always inspired by rooms like this:
When I see photos like these, I am halfway inspired to get rid of EVERYTHING I OWN.
Until I spy a charmer like this one:
I love it!
Hey! Maybe LESS is a BORE!
And yes, that’s another famous quote by another famous architect:
Here’s one of his most famous residential designs:
But back to ME . . .
. . . one day last weekend, I felt I needed the kind of morale boost
that moving my stuff around provides.
I tackled our neglected (in winter) enclosed front porch
+ gave it its warm weather makeover!
I was definitely rocking some less-is-a-bore attitude.
Believe it or not, I was all set to sell this piece at auction.
Instead, I filled it with lots of stuff I love!
The red quilt is old, + its pattern is called Irish Chain.
The blue one is only old enough to have been sold
at the late, great Marshall Fields, C early 90’s.
Its beautiful design is called Ocean Waves.
Okay, so that was fun — both the re-arranging + the blogging about my stuff!
As always, thanks for viewing; it means a lot!
