I have a friend who recently started selling window coverings for a major department store in the city. She confided that she visits a lot of retired women who are finally splurging on drapery as their husbands have recently passed away and can’t say a thing about it (true story).
So I’m just wondering; how can I get you to appreciate the value of creating comfort and atmosphere inside our home as much as you appreciate having the biggest and best our-friends-will-be-so-envious-house or flat screen television?
As difficult as it may seem, how can I have you equate new living room and home décor to a vacation or golf game?
Also, I get your obsession with wood because you’re a guy! And I love that about you! *You like log cabins and rustic environments (lodges & camps). Wood is real and men like real stuff as it relates to wood. Trees are a part of the woods and outdoors and I know you love that because you are a hunter (or camper).
But sweetie, it would make me really happy if you would let me paint our 80’s oak (or any era of dated wood) cabinets white. I promise I’ll stop complaining about our old kitchen (for at least few more years) until we can afford to install a new one. *Contributed by Stu Stiller, thanks 🙂
Did you know that we should budget a minimum of 10% – 25% of the total cost of our home for furniture and window coverings? As a bonus, when we go to sell it will already look staged and designerish which will add anywhere between 6 – 20% more to the total selling price.
I love you. Can we compromise and alternate between decorating for trips or new bigger and better tv’s? I promise you will love being in our home and having our friends over even more when I’m done!
Love, (insert your name here).
PS. Darling, I accidentally left your Lazboy chair by the curb and it’s gone! I went out to buy you another one and learned that it has been discontinued forever. I swear I cannot find one in any store.
