Decorating for the Artistic Soul

Archive for June 26th, 2009

Sometimes, what you think you want, and what is practical, affordable, and appropriate are two different things.  For example, that white plush carpeting is the stuff dreams are made of.  But if you have kids and pets, it can easily become a nightmare!

The same goes for brocades, velvets and silks.  Washable, stain-resistant, and long wearing fabrics are what you need to live with until the kids are grown.  Express your artistic desires, instead, by using middle toned fabrics of heavier textures; patterns, instead of solid colors; and hanging your paintings slightly higher than is fashionable, which will keep them safely out of reach of your young and rambunctious family.  And save the Aubusson  area rug for the future!

Coffee and end tables should be varnished, made of laminate, or covered in glass to allow for sweating beverages  and feet.  And have plenty of them for your snackers and their guests.  Have lots of comfortable seating for TV watching…chairs and sofas for adults, stools, bean bags, or even soft floor cushions for the kids to roll around on.  Have a big rocking chair for Grandma, and a little one for your toddler.

If you have an entertainment center, and etegere,  or a curio cabinet, it can serve both adults and kids.  The top shelves can have “grown up” things, and the bottom ones can house the children’s books, games, and treasures.

Use this same method when doing decorating in any room of your home, except the bedrooms.  Kids’ rooms should be exclusively theirs, and your room should be just for you and your spouse.
