We’re getting close to wrapping up the master bedroom so I’ve started brainstorming ideas for the living room/TV room. The other evening I called Matt over to check out the mood I came up with.
Matt: It’s fine…but I don’t like the rugs.*
Me: We never seem to agree on rugs! What do you look for in a rug?
Matt: You know what you look for? The exact opposite.
Matt: You look for color and whimsy…
Me: … and you have a beige soul. What’s wrong with whimsy?
Matt: I just think we should be more formal.
Me: But we’re not formal people!
Matt: Compared to a lot of people we are. I just think our entertaining spaces should be more formal.
Me: My dad and my step mom are formal. They have fancy table settings and glasses for different types of wine!**
Matt: So do we!
Me: Since when?
Matt: We have different glasses for wine and martinis and champagne and ouzo…
Me: From IKEA!
*And what was the focal point of the design? The rugs.
**This is basically my definition of being a successful adult–having different glasses for red and white wine.
