I surprised even myself with the color palette in our new house. While there is nary any beige to be found, the colors are a bit more subdued and richer than my normal fresh and vibrant favorites. I think I went in this direction to honor what the house really needed- hims a cozy old school green/gray guy, he would look ridiculous with neon insides.
Does this mean I am growing up? Doubtful.
But I have to say, I am really loving this new take on my style. And I have become OBSESSED with these fabrics by Mulberry.
At first I wanted to do a chair in it for our guest room, but then I was like nay- I will never see it! I want to gaze upon its glory all day! So now we are doing shades in our den. Which is surrounded by windows. Like 12 of them. Twelve times velvet scenic shades? Not sure, but I’m going for it. And you will get to see it in February. I am SO behind getting things wrapped up- but I have set a January deadline for me to finish, photograph, and show you good people.
But what is that perched there atop that peony?
It’s like the personality I wish I had. The kind that sits back and is secure in their secret awesomeness, takes their time to let you figure out how great they are. I am much more, “Nice to meet you. THIS IS WHO I AM! KNOW ME!!! LOVE ME!!!!!”
It’s kind of exhausting, sometimes.
