A welcome distraction, care to join me? Let’s see what style lessons we can glean from twenty-five years ago.
Lesson #1: When you must move a pillow to sit down on your couch, that’s 28 pillows too many.
Lesson #2: Even though something might be called “classic” that doesn’t make it so.
Lesson #3: Carpet in the bathroom: not a good idea then, it still isn’t.
Lesson #4: Nature always looks good.
And now for a word from our sponsor: The new Fiat Panda has more muscle. (I am so thankful the body-building trend is over.)
Lesson #5: It’s nicer not to seat your guests so close to fire.
Lesson #6: When everything matches perfectly down to the drapes, your room is guaranteed to look outdated.
And lastly: The best way to distract someone from noticing you have too many of something is to put it all in rainbow order.
(The nail polish is Sephora’s “Brunette on the Internet.” It seemed fitting.)
