phase ONE: all about paint
Friday, July 22, 2011
we moved into our home five years ago this month ... i've transformed it room-by-room with the exception of the formal living room/dinning room combo. the space is totally uninspiring, it's oddly shaped and truly has some challenges ... until now.
i have been blessed to meet a new friend, an aspiring interior designer. she wants to build her portfolio ... i want to make our house a home. we're the perfect team. she listens so well. she doesn't trying to make me fit into a box or her design style of choice. she's helping me "take some chances" ... in short, THE WALLS WON'T BE WHITE! :-) previously, since i didn't know what to do, i played it safe. we rarely use the living room ... why would we, it's boring!! nothing about it represents us, our lifestyle, etc.
well ... SP buddies, a change is in the mist ... and i couldn't be happier. i won't be completed over night ... i have decided to basically empty both rooms and start fresh (GARAGE SALE!!)
p.s. her analysis of things i like determined that my design style is "global" :-) ... i would have said eclectic contemporary. i like global better.
what's your design style?
