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.
