subtle touch

The finest works of art are precious, among other reasons, because they make it possible for us to know, if only imperfectly and for a little while, what it actually feels like to think subtly and feel nobly.
Aldous Huxley, English writer

In a day when we are on information and sensory overload, it is nice to come home to the subtle, quiet look.  Country Living magazine did a beautiful job exemplifying this by gently incorporating florals into home decor...this is not your mamma's Waverly!  Check out these beautiful rooms with placement of vintage florals and floral accents...

Taking something that you love and weaving it throughout your home in this subtle way creates harmony in the rooms...there is the suggestion that things are linked without it blaring like a parade.  Think about what you love, and see how you can introduce one element of that into each room.  Send me pictures of what you create...I would really like to see them.
