I am a product of the late fifties. I grew up surrounded by modern
furnishings. I have been obsessed with decorating since I
was a little girl. My room was my
canvas. I would close the door, and
start moving furniture around, trying to find the right arrangement that was
aesthetically pleasing, yet functional.
I would then open my door for the big reveal. My parents would walk in and smile, praise
me, and walk away I am sure shaking their heads. I finally got my big chance when I was 11; my
parents said I could pick out a paint color, and a new bedspread. Okay, remember this was 1968. My walls were a bright grass green. I choose a large flower print bedspread of
green, black and white. Inflatable
plastic pillows were all the rage, so I choose a couple for accent
pillows. This has been the extent of my
decorating life. I dreamed of going to
school to become an interior designer, but like most, life had other plans in
store for me. I have never let go of my
passion, just fulfilled the dream within the confines of my own home and small
I have furnished my home with a mixture of mid-century second hand
pieces, family hand-me-downs, and a few custom items. My personal taste leans more toward
mid-century/contemporary, but I have great respect for all styles. To see some of my recent projects go to humblenests.tumblr.com.
