I was looking forward to getting my hands on the new "house" supplement magazine in the Sunday Independent last Sunday. So with coffee in hand , I peeled through, pleasantly interested by the first article written by the very talented Brendan O'Connor on his incurable obsession with home improvements. As always his article was humorous, but also encapsulated the journey the vast majority of people experience whilst undertaking the home décor process. Perhaps reinforcing my opinion that employing the service of an interior designer can be well worth the investment! Saving individuals time, avoiding expensive mistakes, and knowing what will work in a specific area/aspect, but without sacrificing appeal to individual clients taste.
There was also another article entitled "Coastal Cool" featuring a 1970s dormer bungalow in Wexford which reinforced my opinion that it is so important, and also fashionable right now, to bring
the outside in.
The third article that drew my attention was entitled "Blank Canvas Blank Cheque". I agree that investing money in art is a far more enjoyable method of investing compared to other investment options. Investors will have something tangible to hold, something beautiful to look at, something that would perhaps have a message conveyed through art (after all it is all in the eye of the beholder) and something that can enhance large spaces of otherwise boring walls. At the moment oversized art is the way to go to be fashionable.
Looking forward to next Sunday's coffee and "house"!!
