when it comes to decorating. At least I don’t think that I am a normal almost 34 year old woman (ugh, that word sounds so old to me) when it comes to decorating. I do not like typical traditional decorating. Not to say that it’s ugly but it’s not my thing. I am drawn to wall tapestries involving tie dye and unique patterns. Sometimes I feel like my decorating style is more like a college student than a 30-something gal (like that word better than woman). I look at blogs like this and I love it (especially the nursery-she has really inspired me in that department) but some how, it’s not me. I prefer wall decorations like this and this more than traditional type wall decor. And rugs, don’t get me started on rugs. I cannot stand the ones that I have seen in most stores. I love this small rug and think that I am going to order it for the half bath downstairs. And I want 2 of this rug to put in the den area. Really, I could completely furnish our home with stuff from Urban Outfitters and CB2.
*Sigh* I really need help in the decorating department. I need to be able to afford to have an interior designed to make all my dreams come true. I can find inspiration and things that I like, but I need someone to help me put it all together. I already drew some inspiration from the blog above. I love the colors in her mater bedroom and bathroom. I have a dark brown shower curtain so adding green accessories *should* be easy. I have a white duvet (need to get a new comforter to go in it-the old one shows through the white so it doesn’t look white) and brown pillow shams. I love the blue in her master bedroom so I just need to find some accessories in that shade of blue. As for the half bath downstairs, that rug from UO is a nice shade of yellow so I need to find a towel and accessories to compliment that-any ideas?
The living are is a real issue because we don’t agree on anything. Right now we have an Army Ranger flag hanging in there….yeah, I did that because I love him. I seriously want that map tapestry and the moustache tree decal in that area. Must convince P, though. In fact, there are so many things at UO that I want on the walls.
Oh, and don’t get me started on the dining room. We currently have no dining furniture because we cannot agree on what to get. I want bar height and P wants a traditional Japanese dining table with floor chairs….with 4 dogs…..yeah…..not sure about that one.
So, where do YOU get inspiration for decorating? What is your decorating style? Do you have any ideas for me?
