Do you like pretty rooms? For me, a pretty room is like a peony. Soft colors, a bit ruffly, feminine. Turns out, I don't live in pretty rooms. Once upon a time, in a little cottage in Portland, OR, I had a pretty bedroom - all in pale pink with curtains of pink cabbage roses. Very girly. As I got older, I realized pretty rooms just aren't me. Come to think of it, I don't dress pretty either. Pretty kind of makes me nervous but lately, I've been thinking about having a whole house of pretty rooms. What makes a pretty room? Feminine upholstery shapes, a touch of crystal, a delicate flower print fabric, a very specific pastel color palette. That's pretty to me, but I'm sure you'll agree - pretty is in the eye of the beholder.

Even my favorite blue&white can be very pretty with soft curtains, a ruffly mirror and peonies. I love thinking of how I can make my rooms pretty. To start, I'm going to buy a big bouquet of pretty peonies. Here's hoping you see pretty this Mother's Day!
