Beauty

"The power of finding beauty
in the humblest things makes
home happy and life lovely."
                ~Louisa May Alcott
  
    Whenever I see a decorating book that has the word 'romantic' in the title I gravitate towards it. Romantic decorating seems to encapsulate everything that I love about objects and design. I am drawn to softness, a palate of pastels, floral details, old and fine things, and when you put them all together somehow the beauty of simple combinations becomes romantic. Why? Because romance is a word that takes in so many different things - an appreciation for the picturesque, a sense of wonder and idealism, blissful positivity, beauty, sentimentality, and love. To embrace romance in your own personal style and in your home for me means that you strive to make the world around you a bit more idyllic, and that you celebrate your own romance with beauty, with life and love, and with the softness of home.
