Are you a perfectionist? I am.
I love everything to match and co-ordinate. I love interior design.
But matching sets make consumers of us all – have you ever realised that?
Take a look at the secondhand towels and sheets and glasses at the charity shops – all discarded because they don’t match. Or maybe because they’re no longer “fashionable”, whatever that is supposed to mean.
Now I wonder – who are these High and Mighty Powers that decree something isn’t fashionable? And what’s wrong with jumbling things up, a mismatch of colours and styles and textures?
What’s wrong with daring to be different?
I’m a perfectionist, but maybe I can cut the clutter – and the amount of stuff I feel like I need to buy – if I draw a line in the sand and say that this time a little bit of mixing is just fine.
