Unleash your girly-girl side with ditsy chic prints
PATTERNS are difficult, I find. I have no problem putting together a complicated colour scheme but throw in some squiggly shapes and over-zealous splodges and I want to run to the hills. However, with every rule there is always an exception... for me that comes in the form of anything retro.
If it’s ditsy, or cute with a nod to times gone by, my no-pattern rule is thrown to the wind! I don’t know if it’s nostalgia that makes me enjoy this style so much, especially as it is so far removed from what I head towards, but I am drawn to cute cups and saucers, rose-patterned tablecloths and flowery plates.
Even if I don’t use them every day of the week, there is something comforting about just knowing they are there.
I have one wall in my kitchen that is adorned with pink antique rose wallpaper and, even though it doesn’t really match how the rest of my home is decorated, I love it because it’s so utterly, unashamedly girly.
Maybe that’s why I like to have these things around, to pull out whenever the mood takes me? As a lifelong tomboy at heart, every now and then it’s nice to let the ditsy me out and remind myself that deep down maybe I am a girly girl after all!
