As with all moves, one undergoes a sense of upheaval and renewal at the same time. I find that I want to get rid of all my stuff, all the furniture, all the books (yes, all the books too), all the cd's and movies, all the decorative stuff and just start with a complete blank slate. When one stays in the same place for a while, one accumulates so much stuff and one can only account for it when one moves, and with this move, since I wasn't able to edit before we shifted, I find that I need to do that now and only then will I feel settled.
It's almost like I just want to have some simple mattresses or a divan arrangement on the floor or close to it and keep things as simple as that. We've always wanted to have a music room and having something simple like that, would create the right mood. Plus, we have great views from our windows, so then we could focus on that, instead of putting sofa's and tables in front of the windows.
I know it's probably a stage I'm going through, god knows, I don't like sitting so low on a daily basis...I already have a knee problem....but I'm craving a completely different look this time, so it's time to change things around. First to go is the sofa set and then the other furniture.
