What do you see? Beauty or the Beast…

Imagine you have just inherited an old house (and a very large cheque)…
You walk up the path, catching glimpses of the building through the mature trees as they dance in the breeze…
You arrive at the front door and turn the big wrought iron key…

This is what you see…

 

Your new home… (image from Secret Stoves)

 

What’s your reaction?

Is it…

An old abandoned house
Cold and Derelict
Crumbling plaster
Broken glass and peeling ceiling
Missing balustrades and dated, worm curtains

 

Or is it…

A huge smile
What exciting possibilities
What an adventure
Beautiful period features
Light streaming in from the glass dome above

 

“Everything Has Beauty. But not everyone can see it” – Confucious

 

Beauty exists everywhere.
But are you open to seeing it?
Great design will only come about when you look for the real beauty and are wholeheartedly prepared to embrace any challenge…
(and ready to ignore the people who say it can’t be done!)
