We moved our big bed into a tiny room. It is only 8 feet wide and 14 feet long. very small and it has short ceilings. My challenge is to make this the sweetest room in the house.
I bought a lamp from McKenzie Childs that is way wild. Lots of colors and a parrot and a big rock and amazingly unusual lampshade. When I first bought this lamp I thought how wild it is. Everyone who looked at it at first laughed and said how amazing it was or how ugly it was. Now months later after they are used to it they have been changed by it. It is no longer wild-bad but wild-wonderful. Now other lamps seem boring compared to it. Even my mother, who laughed out loud when I first got it, now loves it. I mean loves it because it gives her joy.
I am telling you this lamp story because that is the way we are, We hate anything new and we cannot see it at first. People thought the Eiffel Tower was ugly when it was first built. They were horrified. That is how it goes with new things. Do not give up if people hate your work at first. They have to grow into it sometimes. This is true of enormously great new works. You need time to accustom your eyes to new things.
