I couldn't love photos of a good neutral room more, but have decided for ME, in MY house, they just don't fit. These are all drop dead gorgeous rooms, but I crave color and can't quite feel like a room in my house is complete without a good dose of it.
I also tried to stick to a very set color scheme like these rooms, but found that I really wanted to add in more colors and not be tied to a specific palette:
Please don't get me wrong...I LA-HUUUUVE every one of these rooms! Tobi Fairley??? The best!! I've just been trying to refine the direction I'm headed in my home.
Lately I think I'm finally coming to terms with what I really like and how I want to decorate. These images are a huge inspiration to me now:
I think every single thing about this photo is perfect (Christmas is 4 months away!!).
And, the Southern Living cover that we all drooled over...
I love the eclectic collection of things, the colors, the "anything goes" approach. I'm really trying to embrace the "buy what you love and it will work together" mentality and put it to work in my home. I've been making some changes that some may think are out on a limb, but I'm sticking with doing what I love and not just what might be pretty and right for someone else. So excited to show you some new things in the coming weeks!
What about you? Do you have a die-hard love of neutrals? An obsession with color? Or are you somewhere in between?
