I just took on a new job where my client is requesting clean, uncluttered spaces with a young modern sensibility. I had to ask myself, what does that mean now? I am reminded of what I fancied when I was young (er!)—I recall I was after this same “look” when I designed my first home.
It was a true Bungalow, very old fashioned with all the period details—and I designed everything with an uber-modern, spare simplicity. Alot of danish modern and midcentury pieces, sleek lighting, lots of creams and whites—I hated color and pattern then.
Although, truth be told, some of MY first acquisitions came from the front of someone else’s curb or from the “graveyard” of 70′s furniture being discarded by various family members. I actually still have some of those pieces and I still love them just as much, even after being reupholstered many times…
My how I have changed. And now I find myself back in that frame of mind, and refreshed and excited about it. It all feels new again. I guess that’s what the passage of time does; it makes you appreciate the past!
