'Does this chair make my room look fat?'
I read this article, by Adriana Barton, in yesterday's Globe and Mail.
'...the home is like an extension of the self. Like body image, it has become a measuring stick for their successes and failings - and a full blown obsession for North American women'
'"The idea is that perfection might be more easily attainable if you buy the right lampshade or vase, but you're never going to achieve the right-shaped [butt].'''
'For women who get caught up in decor obsession, the home is no longer a source of pride but a "source of shame,"'
I don't want to be part of this, the article makes feathering your nest sound so negative, so unbalanced...but I have to admit, it is pretty darn important to me that my home is nice...and I do have a fiddle leaf fig...
Go have a read, and let me know what you think!! I am off to read the comment section below the online article...
