Oh, look at this

I recently hosted a small party in my home. It had to be small because my condo is definitely not McMansion sized. Just because I don't have the den of of a big cat doesn't mean I don't try. I like to think my home is a well designed comfortable space. Original art lives on the walls, a few found objects co-exist with some amazing visual delights that friends have given me over the years. The punctuation is a few designer original pieces of furniture. None of which are extremely priced or valued. The gemstones are a few carefully selected artist adorned seeds from the Amazon.

During the party, conversation turned to a set of drawing Manikins that I painted glossy red and black to fill space and created a visual effect in one corner of the living room. I remember commenting that they made an interesting conversation piece. One of my friends replied that everything in my house was a conversation piece. I took it as a compliment in the moment, but now, a few weeks after the fact, I wonder if perhaps she was really saying that my house is over designed.

And maybe you are over-thinking it.

I'm with buffalo on this one.

I would bet that your place not only provides comfort but also dishes plenty of conversation; an extension of you.
