MODERN LIVING


Lifestyle Network is one of my favorite channels, and more often than not, I dream as I watch. Dream of the life I want to have; my very own house and how to decorate it; my kitchen and what to cook for dinner; my family and every little thing one can daydream about. But what never changes is the modern furniture I want in my place. I’m not the type to prefer antiques or bulky decorations. I want it neat, simple and modern; from my leather sofa and thin lights in the living room (no to chandeliers), steel kitchen and dining table, to my very bathrooms and bedroom…I want it all modern.

Having a decorator will ease the planning, the matching and the budget but there will never be a problem to ideas since there are sites already to help you in one click. It’s not like before that you have to go around the malls and warehouses to see for yourself what you MIGHT want. Then you have to choose colors of your sofa from scraps and pieces of the cover they have; match it with the curtains that you also have to personally see choosing from one design to another, and so on and so forth. How glad am I that I belong to this era of computers…though I am still at the “dreaming” phase (LOL)! At least I get to see them now without people knowing that you actually are doing so just for your dream.

You know Jenie- it's funny you wrote this.

When I was younger, I wanted all antiques. I had quite a few things and my dining room and bedroom furniture were older. I did have new l'room furniture, but the style looked like it was old- Victorian style. I wanted a huge house someday. I even dream about big houses at night (although that may be ANOTHER issue!)

My present home is approx. 1400 sq ft house. 2 1/2 acres. Love it here.

Suddenly, I have been dreaming about getting an RV and hitting the road. P/T to start, but maybe F/T one day.

Now how did I go from dreaming HUGE house to sardine can?

Maybe years of kids, years of caring for a home, all the accumulated junk....

And our country is soooo beautiful, I really want to see it.

Anyhoo....
