Getting Antsy... The Planning Stage Has Begun

No, I'm not dead - nor did I hit it big with the lottery and moved away to a mansion where I sit sipping on margaritas, poolside all day long.  Quite the opposite, actually.  I am very much alive, still not a millionaire and have been slowly saving up my hard earned moola for my next room makeover.  I just couldn't figure out which room to attack.  It shouldn't have taken me this long to choose, since the answer was so obvious once I finally thought of it.  I pass by this room every day, three to four times a day.  I don't spend much time in it because well...  It pains me to look at it since it utterly bores me: a jumbled, no theme room with no oomph factor.  So finally, I have begun the planning stages of my Formal Living Room.

First, let's pick apart this not-so-larger-than-life space, shall we?

Oh, I'm sorry!  Did I just walk into another person's house?
Nope, it just looks like the same ol color scheme as every one's house in a twenty mile radius.

Still no window treatments...  Booooring!!

What look was I going for, exactly ?  I'm not sure myself!
My very first overpriced wall decor purchase.
So overpriced that I'm going to have to move this to another room for a future project, I'm sure.

I'm not big on giving too much away (where's the fun in that?), but yes, I have chosen my 10% of the 60/30/10 rule.


Oooohhh yeah...  This is going to be fun.
