My husband’s grandparents, George and Evelyn, are very special people. They’ve been married for 70 years and still love each other like the first day. My husband’s Morfar, as the maternal grandfather is referred to in Denmark (mother’s father), has an amazing life story. When he was young he enlisted to go fight in World War II, but was rejected because of a heart condition. He was determined to go over to Germany and help, so he became a Lutheran Pastor.
As you may or may not know, I got married last year and a few months later moved into our first apartment in a new city. Both my husband and I had absolutely nothing to furnish it with. For many this would be a wonderful opportunity to start fresh, like having a blank canvas; but for me, an interior designer, it was a little more complicated.
New Year, new life. That’s what we say at the beginning of each year. It’s when we set new goals like, starting the diet (again), going back to the gym and refreshing our home. We often think that in order to achieve a significant change at home we need to have an ample budget and that we need to get rid of everything and buy everything new. Fortunately there’s a simple way to achieve drastic change with a slim budget, and we can do that applying a different color to our space.
