The Personal Touch in Interior Decorating

I love the retro decorating books. Today’s choice is a bit different. Nearly the first third of the book is establishing your personal taste. I thought this was a pretty clever idea, especially for someone like me that has zero artistic talent.

For example, there are some drawing of table legs and you have to identify your favorite. I kept thinking about what each leg meant. It felt like some bizarre Rorschach test. I also couldn’t pick a “favorite”. Now I am looking a table legs everywhere.

Busy calling a therapist,
