Yes, it is winter. Time for people to pull out the woolies and thermals and put nice soft blankets on the beds and throws on the sofa and pull the drapes closed against the cold dark nights.
But the magazines are showing these posh apartments belonging to so called designers and they all look so uninviting, so cold and doctors waiting room-ish.
Who wants their living room to look like a hotel lobby ?
Who wants a kitchen that looks like the bar in the hotel we stayed in in Argentina ?
If I am going to start decorating according to magazines, I am going to dig up some French mags, they have rooms with drapes all over the place, doorways etc ... they have big fat sofas buried in pillows and soft throws to keep you cozy.
Color and warmth .. that is what the every day person wants in their life.
In their homes and especially in winter.

Sitting here nice and cozy in my little office with the chenille sofa and pillows and throws and drapes framing a view of snow. brrrrr.
