My brother Peter e-mailed me an article from a Swedish newspaper the other day that he felt was very Live Like You! The title was “We are the opposite of minimalists”. It was about a couple in Sweden who refused to have what they referred to as a catalog home. Both husband and wife are lovers of design and share a pretty fearless unusual taste and decorated their home in their own unique way. It inspired me to start a new series to showcase some people who design their home according to their heart…..Hello fearless home!

The lamps above the dining table are heating lamps for baby pigs! Who would have known?
They love big colorful wallpapers and mixed lots of vintage and flea market finds with nice antiques.
Typical old Swedish bed with the famous old rag carpets.
The husband came home with an old rusted cart that he found in a river. He turned it in to a chair!
Again, lots of bold colored and strong patterns on the walls.
Bold on bold…why not?
The bottom line is, your home is where you, you should feel free to express who you are, not create something that just fits in. I have to agree with Jonathan Adler, no matter what design style you like…MINIMALISM IS A BUMMER!! Hm…yeah life is definitely too short for that.
