Hello my Friend!
Well, call me indecisive. That’s not usually what I’m called, but I changed my mind on the office decor-AGAIN. Argh. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with the rest of the house-but this room is a challenge.
Remember a bit ago I found some framed prints from Home Goods and thought I’d go in the direction of travel? Yeah-scratch that. For some reason the silver frames were driving me crazy–and I couldn’t let it go….so, I returned them. Boo.
Back to square one. Although I’m still going to do the framed road maps of places we love–but down the main stairway instead. That was my original thought-so I’m going back to it.
The good thing that came out of making that return was that I randomly came across the perfect pieces to complete our dining room table centerpiece. Patience is a virtue.
The big white coral-looking bowl-thingy has been just sitting empty. It’s not exactly made for anything of real weight, but these little glossy guys were perfect.
Loving the modern apples and pears.
As for the office–back to the drawing board. Right now there’s a big piece of furniture that was previously in the master bedroom. I know that I’m going to paint it a bright color, but need to find a direction-before I know how to tackle it. Hmmm…that room is keeping my decorating bones a thinkin.
Today’s lesson: Follow your gut. It may lead to a little unexpected surprise.
Oh and on another note, one of my favorite pieces that I re-painted in this whole process was the now blue trunk. It’s the big pop of color in the great room. Remember?
Well, it couldn’t have worked out more perfect in that spot. It’s the greatest place to store all of the napkins, placemats and tablecloths.
It used to sit by the front door and housed all of the pups bazillions of collars. Now it’s graduated to being entertainment central. Love.
