I am a usually little wary of new trends that I remember wearing, doing, or having. But since I think, (besides Barbie's Dream House) that this Mod feel was my first introduction to the world of design, I am excited. In 1968 or around there I moved into a bigger bedroom when my sister got married. My Mother allowed me to express my creativity or I just wore her down! I painted BIG pink and blue flowers all around the room ( over her very pretty cream wallpaper). I then painted the back of a beautiful walnut dresser with the same daisy to use as a room divider, CRAZY ! A year later I changed rooms again. This time I was loving hot pink and orange. The chestnut woodwork and doors was now high gloss hot pink. One accent wall in a very marimekko orange and pink flowers. My friends thought I was so cool. Years later I remember my Mom painstakingly restoring her woodwork. But just maybe this is why I paint walls today and have a design business. Thanks Mom,
