On embracing my home-design limitations

our kitchen: it's still not done, but it's coming along.

Over at Babble today I’m talking about our decision to buy an over-the-range microwave/vent combination, rather than a separate (read: stylish) range hood, and how insecure I felt about that choice until I realized:

This is my house. It’s not a designer’s house. It’s not a studio. It’s not a magazine layout.

So really, who cares what anonymous internet critics think? We have to do what works for us. Our needs, our limitations, our preferences, our budget.

I’d love if you’d read the rest of the post, and then let me know – have you ever felt insecure about a purchase or decorating decision because of what “other people” might think?
