Excuses

Please excuse my lack of post today- I am in major overdrive mode searching for just the right bedroom inspiration photos.  Its like every other day of the year I have a clear vision, but WHY when I actually go to do something on my own house I get major ADD?!?

I just spent over an hour at the fabric store on my lunch break and came home with this:

More orange, navy and some pretty gold/silver/cream textured fabric.  I have a hard time trying new things it seems.

I'm having issues today and it wouldn't surprise me if I found myself back at Homegoods buying those orange lamps that I don't need whatsoever!  

So you see my issues here, written out for all to see- so please excuse my lack of post.

I know exactly how you feel...I think I know what I want until I have to actually execute it. I also find myself on a path that has nothing to do with what I need to get done...like shopping for the easy stuff/ lamps, ect...

Good Luck and hang in there!

i always get major cases of the decorating ADD but I always come back to the basics; that's why the i like the gold/silver/cream number

I'm feeling the same way right now about my bedroom. I had plans for that room. Big plans. Now, not so much. That's one of the reasons why I have not posted anything this week. And you mentioned ADD...girl I just took an online quiz on adult ADHD and the results were: You (I) possibly have ADHD!!! Great, just great!

Have a great day!

Ha, I like the label of this post: All About Me. I need one of those! :)

One thing at a time, hang in there, if you find one thing or idea you completely and totally love you can often be on your way! Good luck! Janell

Oh boy, can I relate. I started a whole post about my poor, sad, dining room. And just couldn't take myself so it's sitting in my draft folder until I can pull myself back together and focus. My poor family. Forever the shoe cobblers kids...

Good luck! And those orange lamps would do any house some good! :)

Go for those lamps. We loved them, sorry.

Oh I know the feeling.

My dining room has been a blank slate for 2 years now.

I finally know a direction I want to go, but I've been sitting with it for a while to make sure I really like it.

Ah decisions are the worst.

I swear, when I get something in my head I CAN'T concentrate on anything else. A little corner that just doesn't feel right or a misplaced chair. Drives me crazy while I try to figure out how to make it just right!! Good luck :)

Oh my word. That "mattelasse" fabric is super cool.
Memories of my Mom in an ensemble like that. I will have to see if she has any photos. I love orange and navy - and think you have to follow your intuition and show us what you create. Those lamps are fun -
A jazzy life is surely a blessing!

aren't fabric stores so much fun?! I get lost in craft stores...LOVE that fabric!

Mi Vida Bonita said...

I totally do the same thing. I think because when we post inspiration or a blog post we are planning, kind of step taking. I think I need to do a plan when I am redoing something in my home and that way I wont be so scatter brained. It seems silly I dont since when I do design projects everything is organized and planned thorough.

Oooh, can't wait to see what you do with those fabrics. The shiny one looks like it'll make a great accent!

I think this happens to all of us! It's so easy to pick things out for others, but when you have to LIVE with what you choose (for possibly a long time), then it gets tricky. I always find myself wondering if I might find something better?? I also get tired of things really quickly, so the key for me is having small elements that I can change easily for a new look.

I love love love love the orange though!! I'd totally have an orange couch, like from your previous post - I love it. But, Chris doesn't love it so much, so I only have small doses of it now. (*tear*).
I say, if this is what you're drawn to, then don't fight it. Maybe if you want something different, try using different shades and tints of these colors - like a lighter blue or apricot??
