Most every woman wants to have a beautifully decorated house that is free from clutter, dust, and little footprints all over the floor. While I am no exception, I do prefer functional over beautiful. If I can’t do what I need to in my house, then what’s the point? A few muddy footprints never hurt anyone. Don’t get me wrong, I am all about clean…and my kids know that all too well!
One of my big things I that I’ve got to get on my treadmill as much as possible, but if it’s stuck out in the garage, then how am I going to use it and still watch the kids to make sure chores are getting done and my house isn’t being turned upside down? So, we have moved (upon my strong request) the treadmill into the living room. No, not in the middle of the room where no one can see the TV, but up against the wall. (The TV turns so that you can see it while on the treadmill, just in case anyone was wondering).
Yes, my house is still decorated…no, it isn’t dust or toy free, but I like it nonetheless AND I can use everything I need! The best of both worlds…functional and beautiful.
Is your house functional, beautiful, or both? What makes it that way?
