Quote of the Week


"It is usually a mistake to impose an individual's taste on a room that has its own style. Conversely, to put very fine pieces of furniture in a room that is without architectural distinction is as absurd as
wearing a tiara with a bathing suit."
- Nancy Lancaster

  7. Are bathing suits and tiaras only meant for beauty pageants???? ;)

    Great room! I admire putting ones own taste in a room. It's easy to follow other peoples ideas!

  8. So, are you saying that I should stop wearing my tiara and pink feather boa with my bathing suit? But...it is so much fun!

  9. great quotes but yes, tiaras should be worn whenever one feels sparkly! added to a bathing suit i'm quite sure would draw looks, but oh well....i did have a relaxing weekend, and hope you enjoyed your chardonnay! i'll be posting a before picture this week of my chocolate shop transformation process, will be alot of work, but fun....

  12. So true, although a tiara and bathing suit sounds kind of cool! Guess I'm a bit quirky then!
