I'm currently working on breaking molds and busting out of decorating habits while trying to maintain my "no shopping till Christmas" budget probation. It's a difficult feat to conquer but I've found there are loopholes (grocery category, helloooo, totally transferrable!). I've always been a fan of the classic black & white motif and have started implementing pieces into my bedroom (pillows, artwork from thailand, etc.) little by little. I believe that decorating, like life, is a process. It can and should be a reflection of your journey. (As earthy and new-agey as that sounds, I really do think so.)
Another mold I'm working to break is that of leaning towards the more glamorous persuasion. I'm having a tough time with this because first of all, I'm not glamorous in any sense of the word, I did buy a pair of designer jeans, but I just don't cut it. However, when I look through design and decorating magazines lately, the things I'm more and more attracted to are really suprising me.
Beautiful, isn't it? Also, just for fun, I really love this room too:
I'm loving the rich, brilliant colors vs. earth tones, stripes and bold patterns vs. solids, and more glitzy, shiny things too in terms of lamps and hangy stuff. Oo la la... What I think is taking place is my evolution from english rustic cottage to retro French glamour diva ba-bam. Could it be?!
Ok, so I need your help. I've already got DK and Stacey on the case and they love the current blue in my bathroom. But I'm still struggling. I just painted it to cover up the awful green that was previously on the walls. Here's what I really want to do with it - thank you Pottery Barn "Shop by Room"!
