I love deep, rich, wrap-yourself-up-with-a-blanket-in-front-of-the-fire colors.
I love dark woods and heavy textures and over sized everything.
At least I did.
It's allllllll driving me crazy right now.
I want to literally gut my house and start over.
Maybe it's spring fever???
Or maybe it's the change in the color cycle....its always changing, always shifting... always messing up my decor!
I have decided to make a few light changes around the house. But, to lighten up my entire house right now would take a chisel and a decade of years and wayyyyyyy more time and energy and money than this girl has.
So, I have started with small changes.
I added some light pillows to the sofas and our bed this winter.
I just got rid of this huge, oversized coffee table in the midde of my family room.
I am in the middle of changing my firplace color AGAIN for the 4th time in 9 years. Out with the dark metallic bronze and in with this creamy glaze.
I am selling my heavy red curtains.
I just switched out my dark, heavy bed comforter for a lighter, softer one with a touch of last year's color of the year (coral) in it.
At this rate....I will have my house lightened up at about the time that dark, deep, rich colors come back in! HA!
Perhaps it's a conspiracy from the decorating world??? Just when I got my house all decorated.....it's time to redo it.
So, are you lightening up yet???????????
