A List

I was surfing the Domino site last night and revisited these “libertine rules to live by” from designers Cindy Greene and Johnson Hartig -- I first saw the list in the magazine and sort of just glossed over it.

They’re actually pretty fun, but my favorites skewed toward the practical:
  • Invest in one good antique to anchor a room.
  • Make a collage on your refrigerator of museum stickers, invitations, funny notes, and every time you reach for something, you'll be reminded of how lucky you are.
  • Close your eyes for 30 seconds at least once during the day, to be quiet and grateful.
  • Buy your favorite books in hardback—that's one thing you'll never grow tired of.
  • Always have enough negative space in a room, so the eye has a chance to relax.
  • Don't throw away old clothes, furniture or knickknacks—drop them at Goodwill.

Although the part of me that aspires to be more glamorous wishes this one was my favorite...

"Always have an extra case of champagne on hand."
