We moved into our house in August of 2006. I still have barely anything on the walls. Only a couple of rooms have window treatments and other than Wyatt's room, no other room in the house has any sort of design theme or is close to looking finished. Not to mention, the items that are in all my rooms are DRAB. I used to say we were just people who liked "earth tones" but who am I kidding. My taste is boring and safe.
I whole-heartedly want to be a woman of style who can boldly accessorize not only herself but her home with oranges and hot pinks and turquoises. But alas, I am not confident enough nor that creative. But am pushing myself to start with baby steps. The good thing about having everything so "neutral" is that I can start with purposeful little pops of color and see how I feel about them.
Be honest, Friends. Do you really think being hip and stylish can be acquired or are you just born with it?
Here are my first itsy bitsy baby steps towards non-drabness.
|This is the material I have purchased to make curtains for my dining room. I think it is the perfect touch of color and has both a bit of traditional and modern. Now if I can just get my rear in gear and find someone to make them for me.|
You'll also notice I updated my blog background to be a bit bolder!
