The words rolled off her lips so easily…"I need to ask you a big favor (dramatic pause) can you let me decorate the new house, you can do anything you want with YOUR office". And so ended my secret plan to put my Large Negro stamp on the new crib, gone are my dreams of classic but cool color schemes, gone is my fantasy of prancing down the isles of Home Depot with fabric swatches, gone! gone! gone!
I have been push back into my little taupe box which we have laughingly chosen to call a office. Oh but I’ll have the last laugh cuz I’m going to transform that taupe box into metrosexual central and all the enter that house and sees that office replete with bold color statements and classic charm will know who has really has good taste, muhahahahahhahaha….
