It’s truly incredible how many different decorating options are out there from which to choose! Many styles of decor are defined by a country of influence. For example, Asian style originating from Asian countries such as China, Japan, Korea, etc. serenely canvases a home with natural fibers and colors from nature. Moroccan style consists of patterns, which I personally love, and it’s intricate, layered, and textured. Morocco is actually a country on the African continent with that desert, Middle Eastern feel. A more rich style showcasing heirloom antiquities with ornate and fanciful decor falls into the French category from France, of course. And finally, English country, from England, boasts of lush ornamental pieces generally overstuffed and carved with small details.
A multitude of choices, some overlapping characteristics, but something specific draws you to select a style that “speaks to you”, and therefore, results in representing who you are when others visit your space. When furniture shopping, you make choices to fit your needs and perhaps to coordinate with your existing style. You have the “privilege of making a choice”.
How grateful I feel to have been born in America! The US Constitution guarantees my “right, power, and privilege of making a choice”. I have the right to choose how to decorate my home, and unbelievably, I have the right to choose who rules over me. Psalms 33:12 says, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.” Tomorrow is Election Day. The day to exercise your “right, power, [and] privilege of making a choice”. Pray. Choose the candidate who “speaks to you” and represents who you are. Decorate your world!
