Book Review: Romantic Style
I am nothing if not practical.
But underneath all my sensible decisions lies a deep yearning for pretty fripperies. I love pink and frilly things. I love lip gloss and flowers and ballet. I am a girly girl.
My home doesn't really reflect this. I was pregnant when we decorated and I had visions of an over-active toddler in my mind at the time (and I'm so grateful I did!).
From time to time, I like to imagine how I'll decorate once I no longer have to worry about paint-smeared hands wiping the walls and playdough being massaged into the rugs.
When I do, I look at this book. It is divine.
It's everything I'd love my house to be (though Grant may want to build and move into some kind of man-shed).
It's more chic than Shabby Chic while retaining that feminine, lived-in vibe.
Pretty times one million. It's the perfect book to escape to when you just can't bear looking at plastic furniture anymore.
