Decorating our living room was a journey. I didn’t get it right at first. I kind of muddled through, trying to figure out how to work around our purple chairs.
I tried a couple different accent colors, discovering what worked and what didn’t.
What pieces of furniture we needed to go where and what to leave out.
Now, it’s our master bedrooms turn and I’m taking the same journey.
I started with Behr’s Seven Seas and I love it. Totally and absolutely. Just not in our master bedroom. It just isn’t working.
It took an afternoon and about $11 to paint these mirrors. And I hate them.
As much as I wanted to appease my husband and give him blue, our moody, dark wood furniture is just not letting that happen.
So I’ve decided that gray with a pop of color is going to work best for this space. It fits our style, rather than the bold blue I had in mind. I still love it and my inspiration bedroom but it’s not right for us.
Decorating has always been a journey. I make mistakes and sometimes I have gotten discouraged because of them, but it’s exciting when that room finally does come together the way I envisioned it.
I could use a whole bunch of cliche’s here to make myself feel better: Slow and steady wins the race. If first you don’t succeed, try, try again. All is well that ends well. Don’t cry over spilled milk.
Ok, you get it.
I may be starting over, but I’m excited really. Because now I have this blue out of my system, I can focus on what’s really going to work for our room.
Do you ever have uh-oh’s when decorating? Am I the only one who gets down when a project doesn’t turn out exactly how you wanted it to?
