Decorating in the Twilight Zone

Sometimes some very weird stuff happens to me related to decorating and, oddly enough, estate sales.  Like the time I was pregnant and tracking down vintage Fisher Price Little People for my unborn child.  I had a dream that I went to an estate sale and found a Little People barn layed out on a blanket.  The next day, I went to some garage and estate sales.  And guess what I saw layed out on a blanket . . .

Sophisticated Paint Colors and a Few Sweet Upgrades

Fresh, but not cold.  Sophisticated, but not formal.  Updated.  Welcoming.  Interesting.  This is how many of my clients describe the overall look they want for their homes.
