Thursday Spotlight: Who Am I & How In Heaven’s Name Does That Relate To My Sofa?!
Spotlight: Who Am I?
Spotlight: Who Are You?
And how in the name of anything does that relate to my sofa….
Yesterday, I shared a photo from the TV Series Frasier. We saw how the choice of Frasier’s Bespoke Sofa ala Coco Chanel contrasted to his Father’s choice of recliner.
Both of those pieces were perfect for who the characters were – at that specific time
Knowing who you are so you can be consistent in every area of your life, starting with your “nest” is important
It can equip you or hinder you
Can you imagine how uncomfortable the character Martin would have been on the sofa & vice versa?
SAFETY + ORDER + BEAUTY™
Yes, you know…one of my trademarked systems 😉
1) from a SAFETY standpoint, he had physical limitations. he needed his recliner to accommodate those issues
2) from an ORDER standpoint, he needed the recliner with a table close by for his drink, remote & as an easy spot for his dog Eddie
3) from a BEAUTY standpoint, that recliner had lived with him for years. It was a pleasant memory and comforting spot where he could delight in all that life had handed him. It was beautiful to HIM
Am I telling you to go buy a recliner?
Am I letting you know that it’s ok to decorate for you, today? YES
In 7 years we will re-asses. My Decorating Principle # 1: Decorate with no more than 7 years in mind.
Who are you?
Does your sofa fit?
Does it do for YOU what Martin’s recliner does for him?
Does it do for YOU what Frasier’s sofa does for him?
I hope so
