Is “Home Decor” the gift that keeps on giving?

I found myself contemplating this question as I drove into work today. I’m not a lover of crowded stores and not much of a showroom shopper – I do, however, love to let my fingers do the walking over magazines (inspiration!!) and the computer keyboard.

With money continuing tight, we all want what’s essential and practical — what will give us “bang for buck”. And if a “bit of pleasure” pops in to say hello, that would be rather nice…

Decor is difficult. You can spend a lot of money. Sure want no buyer’s remorse when it comes to home decoration! If you’re like me, you have to live with the decision for a fairly long time.

I can think of two pieces that I bought under *such* tremendous feelings of “I WANT THAT”. The first is a wing chair, in a FAB-U-LOUS fabric (deep burgundy, in a diamond pattern) that I simply fell in love with. Ball and Claw feet in the front. The chair had a classic look that had me haunting the store after hours, because it was sitting right near the door. One evening, I stopped by while driving past: Someone was sitting in “my” chair — and their legs were hoisted in the air by a foot-rest: the Wing Chair had turned Barcalounger! Comfort as well as great looks => I had to have it.

But once I got it home… Where could I put it?

The Wing Chair is now companioned by a wonderful Jeffersonville (Vermont) antique-store find: a corner end table, with a second tier around two sides — perfect for the suede-shaded lamp from a local T.J. Maxx / HomeGoods. But the chair ended up against the wall, which means to recline while in it, you have to pull the chair out into the room! So, sometimes I’m rather of two minds about the this purchase. Great piece of furniture – but not always used.

Yet, I LOVE it! Can’t imagine the living room without it.

My other tale of a “find” that I Love-to-Hate, or maybe Hate-to-Love I’ll leave for next time.
