Hello? Is anybody out there? No? Well as I’ve most likely obliterated any following I might have once had on Everyday-Modern by posting a ghastly article about moving out of the heart of the urban core and then promptly taking a seven month hiatus, I reckon it’s best to just start with a clean slate. New home, new year, and a slightly re-purposed Everyday-Modern — a rolling stone gathers no moss, right?
So what’s this talk about a slightly re-purposed Everyday-Modern? Well, as I mentioned last fall, we purchased our little three-bedroom dream house just outside of the urban core on the corner of hypocrite and get down off your damn soap box. And here’s the real truth — whilst still maintaining my design ideals that bigger is not better, why pay someone when you can do that yourself, and less is more, I have come to understand that those principles can thrive anywhere!
So for all of you hardcore urbanites (of which I used to count myself one), I may have to woo you with something other than tales of metropolitan swank. But please, don’t just write off Everyday-Modern as the sounding board for the chardonnay-fueled ramblings of another desperate suburban housewife. I can assure you that though I live in a neighborhood outside the core, I’ve lost none of my cynicism, biting wit, or staggeringly creative ideas on how to make your home beautiful.
So on that note, please take a gander at how I have been spending my time for the past six months. I promise that I have not been idly lounging on my chaise eating bon bons and sipping fine champagne. I’ve got a boatload of articles stored up, and I’m ready to rock this bitch.
