My little corner of the world


This is my little TV room, former kid's bedroom. Empty TV stand as the new TV will be delivered today. As I said, I like color. This is a room of whimsy with the stripes on the wall and artwork that only suggests reality but allows some fantasy. The tall case is new and stacked full of my ex-late-husband's CD collection. I don't mind it as it adds color to the room. When I'm finished with remodeling projects, I'll tackle the cataloging of those CDs and see about getting rid of some.

My house is a series of very different and colorful rooms, each that expresses something of me. My office is calm and pretty, a nice place to work. My bedroom is a sanctuary. My living room is lively and musical. I know my new remodel is going to be rather neutral in tone, but I am keeping my brightly patterned living room furniture, and my most overwhelming grand piano. There will be bits that show I'm the person who lives here.

I won't mention the basement. It's more of a dungeon these days. That'll be next. But next year sometime.

By the way, those stipes are painted on -- not wallpaper.  I spent 8 hours just in masking for those stripes.  It was fun and I'll never do it again!

Interesting room and like me, I see you like rooms to be crowded and full of surprises. Always good to open some forgotten cupboard and find lost treasures!

Yes, this room is definitely so. It's funny you would say that, as I just cleaned out the closet and did find some long lost things. My decluttering efforts were mildly successful. Yet I still kept some silly things: my daughter's chlldhood dance costumes, my high school sweater, my son's clarinet . . .
