Reevaluating…

I feel I am losing site of the direction I am heading in some of the rooms in my house…Take the family room for example…

I was originally going to do pink & navy, which I still plan on doing BUT different from my original idea…

For the settee I’m going boring and doing a white twill that is the same as my couch, with a box pleat

I saw this image for the first time a while back on Little Green Notebook…in my opinion, nothing’s cuter than a box pleat…

I need to stay true to my “design philosophy”…I’m no expert but I love a neutral base and add my color in pillows and what not…nothing original about that way of doing things, but this is definitely what I’m drawn to…

I feel like I’ve gotten off track…as much as I love and want to marry Pinterest, sometimes it can be my enemy…I see so many images of things that I love and want, but yet combined wouldn’t make sense…I love bright colors, but I don’t want my home to start looking comical…I need to tone it down without it being boring…

I feel a little relieved to have had a good ‘ol sit down with myself and get the air cleaned…I know now that I want a pretty home, and that doesn’t mean it has to be magazine gorgeous…

So, my master plan is to pretty much clear off my surfaces of everything that is a question mark and take it to the basement for a while.   I work better with a clean slate…make a list of things that I am definitely putting in my rooms and get them done…

So, make me feel better and tell me that you all are going or have gone through this…I feel like I’m the only one who is commitment phobic when it comes to my home and end up wasting time and money on things I think I like, but end up trashing in 2 weeks…It’s not just me, right??

Thank you for letting me vent…have a lovely and productive weekend!!

I'm having the same issue, so I'm right there with you. I also blame HGTV - those rooms are always finished in a half hour. It makes me rather impatient with myself. I try to remind myself that it is a marathon, not a sprint but that only works part of the time. If I find a cure for this disease I'll share my pills with you. :)

I basically could have written this post. Local support, sista.

i am always drawn to rooms with "WOW" but i know me and i do better with punches in things i can change easily. i think the white will be perfect and you can easily change pillows.
