When I go shopping I focus on the thing (or things) I want to buy and mentally ignore anything that doesn’t meet my criteria.
While shopping at the Decorating Outlet for lighting fixtures, the first order of business was 2 hanging pendants for the master bathroom.
I took pictures of all viable pairs.
Charlie pointed out other pairs that he liked (which I liked, too) but that didn’t meet all criteria.
For instance, I don’t do “brown”. Not in what will ultimately be a grey marble bathroom.
And, although a clear fixture is attractive, I know Charlie does not like to see the actual light bulb once it is lit.
With all these choices we did not find what we wanted here at the Decorating Outlet.
After determining that we’d need to look elsewhere, I took a few more pictures and discovered I hadn’t seen some truly interesting fixtures in my blinders-on desire to find what I was looking for.
But we really tried.
Are you a focused or haphazard shopper? Or something in the middle?
