I have one client that I hate working with. She is incapable of making a decision and sticking with it. She is unable to define her own style or design preferences. One day she's a modern gal and the next she's a little bohemian but all the while with a penchant for Louis XV. She has champagne taste on a beer budget and she has even been known to wake me up in the middle of the night with a design related question. In case you haven't yet deduced, the client is me.
When I work with "other" clients I am concise, organized and very efficient. Not so much when I'm working for myself. Case in point. I am trying to redecorate our living room. Nothing big. No structural work or large furniture purchases. Just some simple fabric selections, a lick of paint and a few additional accessories. So what's the problem? Largely and primarily I can't decide on a colour scheme and stick with it. Here are a few examples of palettes that have struck my fancy lately.
So while it's clear that I'm in a blue state of mind, it's the exact blue and the accent colour that changes hourly.
Today I came across this amazing wallpaper company and I fell instantly in love with this wallpaper.
and I thought about how great would look with this fabric. I actually found this fabric today at our crumby Fabricland but I see that I can buy the pillows already made at a cute etsy shop
and this fantastic ikat pillow that I won last month from Lisa's blog. You'll see all the goodies I won when my living room is finished.
Since our entire main floor has coved ceilings, it's not really possible to wallpaper walls and it's kind of a good thing since this wallpaper retails for over $100 per roll (again with the champagne taste!). I was planning to use the wallpaper for creating a back to a currently backless display unit. After reflecting on its loveliness I have decided that the effect of the paper would be completely lost with all the display items stacked in front of it and have decided instead on this.
So, guess where I am? Right back at square one with my mad love for blue and nowhere else to go with it.
