i hope everyone has enjoyed their who cares about climate change cyber monday. did you accomplish some stylish scores? take advantage of the deluge of discounts?
and i did a consult at a client’s home this afternoon – she just needed a quick holiday zhush, like a new pair of lamps, some new solid pillows, a big round modern mirror and a lucite coffee table. we found it all on sale. we even got a few things from Hollywood at Home who’s surprisingly offering 20% off through tonight.
i’ve been pouting around this kondo for the last month, sort of waiting for some metamorphic style upgrade to just descend on me. in my head: oh now you’ve made it! you’re ready for this grown up, amazingly editorial perfectly executed place that everyone will photograph and tell their grandchildren about the time they saw a 12′ tiger sofa on a blog and you’re pretty much Chiara Ferragni (who’s wiki, btw, has her profession as: an Italian fashion businessperson. same, see?)! this process should take about, oh, 3.5 months.
i put all my stuff in storage, and now i’m going to get it back out. i’ve been scooting my few remaining things around this huge place for weeks now, with the thought, well they won’t be here long! i guess i was thinking my life would be altered in a substantial enough way that i’d literally have all new things. i’m not kidding.
so, it’s not. i have plenty of nice things i love, and i also can’t afford many new things, so it’s time for #operationgetreal. did this happen to any of you during your last move. you sort of pranced around your new place with shit in boxes and things all awry, waiting, and trusting that somehow (new) things would get arranged, and it would be perfect and done, and different? we all need to get a life.
