What is your home decorating style, and how has it changed over time? Do you have plans to redecorate? 
Submitted by enSue.

i think i hold back to much in my decorating style. i'm really into minimalism and modern. and andy tends to be afraid of this being too cold so i end up adding shapes and colors that aren't my first choice. my other reason for holding back is that i've always been waiting to do what i truly want to do for the house we own/build.

so i like simple but i also like little bits of lovely personality with photos, art, sentimental pieces, but not cluttered. as i design my dream house i'll be incorporating built-ins and shelves, places for art, big windows. i start salivating at the thought. i really want to design a home for us.

clothing! on monday i ended up with a third outfit! i put on a lacy white tank layered under a marc by marc jacobs tunic top and true religion dark jeans with the woman patch on the butt. tuesday i wore my charolette i love you red and white striped tee and jeans to eliot's new gym class! wednesday i did camp consultations and had on my white tank under my lamb pirate ship tee, marc by marc jacobs green gauchos and black boots. in the evening i went to an amazing event* with eliot in menlo park and wore a lovely black top with satin covered buttons on the 3/4 length sleeves, a key hole back and fitted, jeans rolled to my knees with tall black boots.

In your ultimate dream house, what does your favorite room look like?

i love modern clean design. my dream room looks similar to the current dwell magazine cover. i think it would have reddish-orange walls, high ceilings, cork flooring, curved openings to adjoining rooms. in the center of the main living would be a large atrium with a swing, a hammock and a large dining table with 10 chairs. simple green plants, maybe a small herb garden, gravel, large stone pathway, a fountain. it would all be a part of the main living area. sliding pocket windowed doors all around for easy access and fresh air.

it's one of my dreams to design and build a home for us. i want a rock climbing wall, a gym, an art space, office, bedrooms, modern open kitchen (part of the living area i described before), a couple bathrooms… so exciting. i've started a sketch book with drawings and clippings, mostly from dwell, that i hope one day i'll be pouring over with a talented architect and my husband and eliot!

outfits: yesterday i wore sweats at home. sunday i wore an army green hummingbird tee with a crocheted orange tank dress over it and my brown angel cords and sunday night i put on a white tank with my cords and one of my heartshapedsky necklaces (andy said i looked smokin') .
