Of Mahogany and Macrame
Decorating Haves and Have Nots
"There is only one look in Prep decorating: Not Decorated. Nothing is consciously coordinated, but everything works together through a successful marriage of utility and excellence. Furnishings have always been in the family, but are not treated like museum pieces. Everything is used: The Georgian silver is on the table at meals, the Canton china is chipped regularly by the dishwasher. And not using certain rooms except for special occasions would be like wearing curlers in public."
CHECK CHECK!! I pass this preppy challenge with flying colors.
#1 My house is filled with Mahogany
#2 I did not hire a decorator (I wanted to do it myself and save the money)
#3 I've inherited close to 90% of my furniture/art
#4We use all of our rooms/china/silver etc
#5 My furniture boasts some of Husbands nick nacks and they all blended beautifully (or they were thrown out)
This is going to be a fun chapter! I can't wait to show more of my preppy furnishings (just wait until you see all the ducks we have)! What's in your house? Did you get it from Mummy???
