When I bought my house, I was at a loss on how to decorate, and i wasn’t good at decorating, my spouse would not let myself and others paint, because I made such a mess.
I could cook anything & cleaned like I was being paid.
I could knit a tuxedo if I was given the dimensions & do alterations on the most elaborate wedding gown, but I couldn’t hammer a nail in. I asked my sister who I should call for interior design ideas, then she was a bit taken aback that I wasn’t recognizably asking for her help. She told myself and others hse provided her help with interior design ideas before I even bought the house. She decorated her entire home, & it was a showpiece. I wasn’t sure I wanted a show piece. I wanted a cabin that was comfortable & livable. She didn’t assume a house should just be comfortable. A house should wow someone when they walked in; With her interior design ideas, she would give myself and others the wow factor I needed. I knew I didn’t want her method of what a house should look like. I wanted a cabin where the kids could play, & my spouse would not believe guilty if she walked in with mud on her shoes. I wanted cozy, livable, & a home. She told myself and others I was being absurd, & if I didn’t want her interior design idea, I would not want interior design ideas from anyone she knew. I started trolling through magazines & talked to my spouse whenever I found something I liked. When the people I was with and I were done with our method of interior designing, the people I was with and I had the perfect cabin where the people I was with and I could relax & be a family.
