As we move into the new year, many of us will be working on organizing our lives and our homes. I know this because I spent most of Sunday cleaning out my closet and organizing my files. Why does the interior design industry have to use so much paper?! While I want everything to be neat and orderly, I realize that there is often beauty in that which is imperfect. There is something about this Paris apartment that is slightly off but looks so perfect to me. It also clearly illustrates the difference between American and French decorating styles. The French don't seem to sweat the small stuff and I will try to remember this in 2011.
