"Decoration is really about creating a quality of life, and a beauty in life that nourishes the soul, that makes life beautiful. That's what all this is about..." Albert Hadley

  1. Amen to that....I guess that is precisely why people need to put "whats in" and trendy aside and decorate for how THEY want to live!! Enjoy your day!

  2. Great words of inspiration. As you know being a regular follower of our blog; our taste tends to gravitate towards old world which accomplishes what you describe. Have a great day! -Tonya

  4. Cliches grow more true the older I get.....'name it to claim it'.

    I beleive in words. If a client can't put together a mission statement for their garden I ask them to describe their finished garden.

  7. So true!
    Words I try to live by! It can be quite empowering when you let go and create a home that covers you like a warm blanket on a chilly evening.
    have a wonderful rest of the week

  9. Exactly. You can be surrounded by all that you require to live, but unless these objects are beautiful, they do nothing to uplift the spirit and feed the soul. Perfectly said Mr Hadley.

  13. So true and a great reminder for me to keep in mind when I'm out shopping. Makes it so much easier to walk away from things that don't truly delight.
