Hi, everybody! I’m Georgiana, your online English teacher, and founder of speakenglishpodcast.com
My mission is to help you to speak English fluently.
You’re probably wondering why it took me so long to publish a new episode. Well, I have a good excuse. Do you know what happened to me? I’ve been redecorating some rooms in my house.
I’ve been planning this for over a year, and I must confess that I’ve been too optimistic. I really thought that changing the decor of the house would be as easy as buying new furniture, a new couch and painting the walls.
However, as you can imagine, things were not that simple.
I must confess that I love decorating, but this time I had too many options, I just couldn’t make up my mind, and I was postponing because I had too many ideas.
One of the quickest ways to refresh a room’s appearance is to paint the walls. In theory, you should choose a color that complements your personality and fits your space.
Although first I had to find out the color of the furniture to match the color of the walls. In general, I want the room to look clean but also modern and a little sophisticated.
I also had to keep in mind that if I buy too much furniture, it will look too crowded, but if I didn’t buy enough furniture, it would look empty and poor. So I had to find a balance.
Size is also important because you could buy furniture that is too big or too small. Small furniture in a large room can look ridiculous though it’s not a good idea to add big furniture in a room either. You can imagine how terrible it would look.
And, of course, you have to stick to one style, as there are several options.
