My mom always told me, “The state of your room reflects the state of your mind.” Since this is undoubtably true, because moms are never wrong, I’m working on covering my walls in beeeutiful memories. The Andy Warhol print, of my dear Marilyn, reminds me of my first step into independence. She was hanging in my first apartment and is still with me three apartments later. The simple sketch is suppose to be of Billie Holiday but is totally unrecognizable, but my late uncle gave it to me so I love it. The two framed flowers are tulips chosen from the first bouquet my dear significant gave me, I never want to forget that day. The white framed picture of a rose was taken from my college home and was the first item I ever updated. Finally, the sun bursts were “borrowed” from my parents’ home, don’t want to forget where I came from. One lesson of design, decorate with things that bring a smile to your face.
