Do you know many whimsical people? The few that I know have
a fun sense of decorating and don't take themselves too serious.
Who says a garden shed can't be a feminine retreat?
The Best Wallpaper Place
By simply adding glitter to a gallon of white paint
you can make any room sparkly and extra special.
You have to smile when you first see these
serious-faced paper-mache Indian busts.
Why not adopt ancestors? Portraits of strangers can make interesting,
colorful art and you'll often find them at thrift shops and flea markets.
Ray and Patricia Hamm of Plano, Texas, have incorporated their
fun sense of collecting into a home that's bright and, yes, whimsical:
I love the huge clock hands on the pink front door!
An antique iron bed, a vintage sand shovel collection,
and modern window treatments? It works!
A tiny hall closet was too small for much practical use so Ray removed
the door and made it a display area for vintage suitcases and purses.
Patricia is an avid fan of vintage Fiesta ware
and designed her kitchen around her collection.
Maybe we could take a lesson from the Hamms and 'whimsy up' our own surroundings. It sure looks like a lot of fun, doesn't it?
