I like rooms which might be designed with a way of playfulness and light-heartedness, or once they have one thing quirky in them, even whether it is refined! A whimsical type could make a home really feel like a cheerful house! Whimsy affords character and character, whereas eliminating pretentiousness, stuffiness or seriousness that’s typically part of the design world.
