This week’s theme is “Curves.” Though I fight against it, I like straight lines, squares, rectangles, and symmetry in the house and garden–all part of an orderly organizational structure. But linear tidiness often translates into aloofness and unapproachability. Curves are looser, less formal, and more inviting. The key is finding the right balance.
This photo of our wrought-iron fence–which shows curvy, almost mesmerizing circles contained within a rectangular panel–shows that sometimes it is possible to have both allure and order at the same time.
