Due to some recent, unexpected pregnancy circumstances I have had the 'luxury' of laying around the house for the past few weeks. In this time, I have realized a few things.
1) It is nearly impossible to sit still and relax in your own home. When I lay on the couch all I can think is, "look how messy that coat closet is!" or, "wouldn't some bolder drapes look better there?" or, "wow, I really should mop!." Does this mean I have a problem?
2) I will NEVER be done decorating and re-decorating my house. Is it impossible to be satisfied, or do my interests just change that quickly? Hmm...
3) I do not like to be alone. The more time I spend alone, the more my mind wanders to things like, "wouldn't some bolder drapes look better there?" Clearly not a healthy thought for me, given my pension for spending way to much on 'bargain' drapes that end up being replaced next month.
4) My house has "the blues." That's right. We are almost entirely blue, floor to ceiling, side to side, front to back. I believe whole heartily that blues are extremely soothing, but there is the potential that I have gone overboard....
Would you care to be the judge?
Any suggestions?? I read a post recently by the Censational Girl that inspired me to change things up just a little bit. It was a Q&A with Emily Henderson, last years HGTV Design Star. (You can check out this great post here!) Anyway, it got me thinking that I need some warmth in our space.
What, in your opinion, is the easiest way to 'warm up' a space without doing a complete overhaul?? I need something quick and easy, and most easily accomplished from the couch :). Any ideas?
