The constant pursuit of unattainable perfection

July 15, 2008

This is how I describe my sport, dressage, to my students.  And it is a good thing.  But I am wondering if it’s in play in this whole redecoration business…

For example…  it makes me bat-shit-crazy to see all my imperfect paint lines and wall defects that are out of my skillset to fix.  I look at books and magazines and only see perfection. 

While part of me wants to believe that this “perfection” is all part of really good staging, a bigger part thinks I am a completely anal perfectionist that has done a marginal job. *sigh*

Tell me…  how perfect are the finish details on your projects?  Really?
