growing up with my mum’s taste dictated a decor that included a lot of leather and glass. (it was the 80s, after all.)
she still likes a stark, modern and to the point design. the point being that she runs a (very, very) clean ship, and the simplest things to clean were those items that could be wiped and vacuumed for optimal results. when i was old enough to acquire a very smart mouth, i used to quote ferris bueller’s day off, (but who didn’t?) with the quip, “the place is like a museum. it’s very beautiful and very cold, and you’re not allowed to touch anything,” (just switch in my name instead.)
when i flew the coop, i thought glass and leather were right up my alley as well. until one day, it dawned on me that i had been living a lie.
oh, all right, it wasn’t nearly that dramatic, but i did come to realize that my taste ran a bit more simply. still modern, but softer, warmer and perhaps just a wee bit more inviting. and i banished leather. no more leather sofas. they may be easier to clean, but they’re so much less inviting for those sunday afternoon naps.
