cactus clutter

Every Sunday I look forward to complete escape and relaxation reading the Home section.

Your April 28 issue depicted an interior, "Putting It All Together," that I found impractical and cluttered. I assumed that that was "professional" interior decorating. It looks like what one might find in a curio shop in Arizona, not in a home. Can you imagine attempting to reach the table setting without tripping over the driftwood? And if you were unable to fall graciously on the cushions, you'd find yourself impaled and wrapped around a saguaro cactus plant. What an entrance!

Many of the other articles were enjoyable, as is the magazine in general. Let's be more practical and professional in the future.
