I believe you shouldn’t settle for mediocrity. In design and more importantly in life. You get one life. So make the most of it. Always easier said than done…I realize. If you aren’t getting from life what you had hoped for there are always dreams.
* A series of thoughts, images, and sensations occurring in a person’s mind during sleep
*A state of mind in which someone is or seems to be unaware of their immediate surroundings
*A cherished aspiration, ambition, or ideal
* An unrealistic or self-deluding fantasy
A cherished aspiration, ambition or ideal is the appropriate definition here. Please hang on to your dream and try to achieve your ambition or ideal. Sometimes this will require you to turn a different corner, to go against the grain and stray from the path you had planned to take.
Your dreams probably will change as you grow older, yet some may never.
I like to think that my son’s dream of living in a chocolate Transylvanian castle and my youngest daughter’s one of having a hairy dog will both pass….
The first will simply pass – or else I need to see someone about my son. The second dream is a lot more achievable, I realize but please not now! Apparently it is a lot more difficult – and a logistical nightmare – to manage a dog. And hairy? I think we have enough tasks to get us through the day for now.
My own long term dream is personal.
But my little day dreams I am happy to share. My current day dream and flavour of the month – or actually year – has been to have a room or at least a wall covered in a leafy palm tree design. I have had my eye on the Cole & Son green with dark blue background (Cole & Son Palm Jungle 95 -1003) for over a year now and it’s not passing. I have also been eyeing up the gold palm leaves for a different room and can’t decide (Cole & Son Palm Leaves 66-2014). So perhaps it’s clear that at least one of the palm leave designs is here to stay. Better get used to it.
Palm leaves on wallpaper – I love.
It oozes that Hollywood Regency, glamour I adore.

This room is – to me – near perfect.
