Less ego, more confidence in decoration
You want to have a hammock inside? Go for it! Or, like me, do you think crates make great modular furniture? Don't hold back, use them. Many people are held back by their concern for others' judgement. It seems the younger generations will overcome these obsessions. It is now common to see shipping crates used creatively, upcycled-recycled items, more utilitarian, easier to live with furniture replacing flawlessly-polished intricately-carved status-symbol furniture. The result is more humane, more creative, more efficient and environmentally friendly living spaces, and a more comfortable, a less status-conscious, a better life!
