In this new year I feel like it’s really time that I pull our house together – not just paint and organize, but actually finish rooms. This is our fourth house that we’ve owned in the sixteen years of our marriage, and this time around I really want to take my time and create a space that we love. One of my biggest challenges has surprisingly been going with a neutral palette. My goal was to create a soft backdrop and add in pops of color, but as we all know the devil is in the details!
I’ve mentioned before that through Darlene of Fieldstone Hill I have started thinking of my house in terms of the WORDS I want it to express, versus a particular style like traditional, country, or modern. Our words include casual, comfortable, pretty, welcoming, homey, organized, meaningful and pulled together.
As part of her Overcoming Decorating Paralysis series, Darlene wrote this post on creating a signature style board from your Pinterest files to help you define your style a bit more. I chose a bunch of photos that really speak to me from my Pinterest boards, and it’s interesting to see a theme emerge from them! What do you see?
