Meet Donna. Until two days ago she had been pretty satisfied with her house. She has nice taste and often receives compliments when people come to visit. She’s up on the latest decor trends and she loves spending money and time on little touches for her home (within reason). Then the other day her husband told her that his best friend from college and his wife are coming to stay for a weekend next month. The one who founded and then sold a financial advisory firm. The one with 3 houses and kids in boarding school. And then it was as if the devil’s own filter of deception hath been removed from her eyes and Donna saw what her home truly was. A sh*thole. How on earth has she allowed her carpet to get so filthy?? What kind of slovenly chump would turn their head at pen marks all over the couch slipcover?? How could she possibly have thought her guest room decor was attractive?? IT DOESN’T EVEN HAVE AN EN SUITE!!!!! 😱😱😱 Donna is about to embark on an monumental fluffing of her already lovely home in an effort to impress these people that she will come to find genuinely don’t care, and love her home. Her favorite song is “Glamorous” by Fergie.
There’s a reason I love this iconic Brunschwig “Les Touches”! She plays well with both prints and solids!! TAKE HER HOME!
This is the new Amy. This Amy would never have a gross refrigerator. She's not that kind of person. She's clean, organized and fresh. She feels sorry for the people with dirty fridge shelves and expired chicken stock boxes. She can't imagine having a 2 year old jar of pepperoncini peppers with mold on the inside of the lid. That's no way to live and Amy is glad she's the right kind of person. Yesterday Amy had two bags of clothes designated for Goodwill in her dining room corner. They'd been there for 2.5 months, eventually becoming invisible.
She slithers her way in and out of friend groups, wreaking havoc anywhere she can. She told you last week how much she admires you for not caring what you look like – she “just doesn’t feel right about leaving the house“ if she’s not completely put together.
