I Take It Back..

The whole, " I need lots of color in my life" rant.  I do not.  I was wrong.  While I do want a little bit of color, I do not need alot. I know.  My mind is crazy weird.  But after getting a few accessories with color, I am already sick of them.  Pieces that I bought years ago in brown, black, silver, white, cream, grey, ect...not so sick of yet.  So, there you have it. 

Where does this leave me then?

Well, I will still for sure be bringing in color through small doses of pillows, maybe a bowl, or colorful throw blanket.  But big items, like rugs and such.... Not so much!  Live and learn my friends, live and learn.

I guess this is the look I am going for.  Do you see how it is neutral, yet it has a little quirkiness about it and it is not boring beige at all.  I guess it goes back to the whole "texture" thing and layering pieces correctly.

I know I have showed this picture before, but it is a fav for sure!  I love the calmness of it, yet the fun pillows and accessories.

Does anyone else have this "disorder" of mine?



  1. I most definitely share this love of neutrals and texture! My husband often teases of the number of times the rooms in our first house were repainted from colors to neutrals!

  2. I do!! I change my mind about my own home every day!! Sometimes I just don't know. It must be hormones. I guess it's a good thing because it helps me re-discover what I already have. I love what you've done with your neutrals! Simply gorgeous :)

  3. Oh honey I have it all the time!!! :) How many times have i painted all my rooms???!!! :) I love the neutrals with pops of color and the best thing is you can switch out the colors without having to renovate your home. :)
