I can't decorate my house worth a lick.
I get all caught up with things "matching" and having a scheme. This problem has escalated recently since this house of ours looks like a sterile mental hospital. Nothing adorns the walls and there is no color or life!
This is a surprise even to me since in my scrapbooking days I was known for bold colors and mixing of patterns. So why can't I translate that into my living environment?
So I have made a commitment to myself to start right now and seek pieces to make my home warm, colorful, energetic and alive. And maybe a little kooky. After all...these are adjectives that could be used to describe me. So how come my living space does not look like I live in it?
I pledge to be bold, colorful and try my best to let go of the linear thinker that I am and allow myself to decorate based solely on passion. I am going to start today to fill my home with things, textures and colors that I love. I am going to start tearing ideas, concepts, colors and inspiration from magazines and compiling it in a binder5. Then, once I know what direction to head in, the slow infusion of life into my home decor will begin.
Details are sure to follow as my new journey commences.
