今日美语MP3:家居装饰 Home Decorating

家居装饰
Home Decorating

【intro 今日导读】

有时,生活似乎一成不变,而你真得需要一些新鲜的东西来调剂调剂。当你对周围环境感到厌倦的时候,你可以重新装饰你的空间:重新摆放家具、粉刷墙壁、或者挂上一些新的艺术品——这些都可以改变你的家居氛围,使其焕然一新。

但是,家居装饰也可能成为昂贵而耗时的项目。有些人会深思熟虑,一个房间一个房间的装饰,严格执行色彩设计方案。而另外一些人则会随心所好地将一件一件家居饰品搬回家,绝不担心它们是否相配,最终形成混搭风格的家居。

梅森(Mason)最近买了一所新房子。让我们来听听他和玛尼(Marni)分享他的装饰计划吧。

【Dialogue 情景对话】

Marni:  So Mason, I know you recently purchased a home.

Mason:  I did. I did indeed.

Marni:  And I’m kinda wondering, how's the decorating coming?

Mason:  It is slow but steady. We did some painting first off.

Marni:  OK.

Mason:  And that was, you know, a whole debacle trying to pick what colors, what our palette was.

Marni:  That can be tricky.

Mason:  Absolutely. But you know we did it ourselves, we didn't hire anybody, so we saved a lot of money, which was nice.

Marni:  Yes.

Mason:  But the big thing is like we kinda had a whole thrift store, flea market aesthetic, just we inherited a lot of hand-me-down pieces. And now we're kinda like, let's be deliberate, let's find nice things and pick a style.

Marni:  So you're kinda doing a makeover, it sounds like.

Mason:  Absolutely. And it's gonna just take forever, because not only do my wife and I have different tastes, but it's expensive to buy new things.

Marni:  It is, indeed. But I personally love decorating, and I sort of love the hunt of like finding great deals, and finding pieces that, you know, I just think are really special. And I think, though, there's small things you can do like just repainting your room or moving things around even, changing things from room to room can just give your house a brand new look. So good luck to you!

Mason:  You want to do it for me?

Marni:  No. I've got my own to do.
