So. . .years later I put my creative flow into writing. Of course with all my other duties as a mom, wife, friend, etc. . .I also have a house that I have to decorate. Lucky me! I have that creative flow that is still going strong.
I've always decorated in darker colors, even have black cabinets and black doors. That means that ALL of my accessories are also very dark woods and paints.
click here for the down-low! A lot of my reasoning for having such dark colors was to hide all the little dents and dings that my guys have made. Listen. . .with three boys that are VERY active, I have a lot of balls in the air, literally, and I don't have a lot of sit around knick-knacks that can be broken.
They are teenagers now and know better than to break anything! That means my new house is free reign for new colors!
I'm a very upbeat person! I love quotes! I love to have light and air surrounding me! It feeds my creative flow. This move is going to be great! We are putting in a very cool pool (when I met with the pool company, I had NO idea how many pool designs are out there!) and I think the house decorations should reflect the light, fun, love feel of our family!
Along with writing my novels, I'm repurposing items that I have to add to the new things I have bought (yes, my amazing husband said that we are supposed to be getting rid of items and not buying new....I'm coming home with something new every day for the new house!)
My new decorating style is more Shabby-Chic/French Country look with whites, creams, light grays, and OLD!
(I'm using old shutters, old ladders, skids, old barn wood, and much more to create new furniture! I had an interior decorator came and she LOVED my idea! Plus she gave me some great ideas for window treatments! Much on that later!)
Needless to say. . .my creative juices are overtaking my life and that includes my writing time! This week I made a new writing schedule that allows me to take a break and paint an item or just go crazy on Pinterest!
In the meantime. . .I just couldn't wait to decorate with the items that I have already repurposed....I redid my guest bedroom because we aren't moving for another month! And I just couldn't wait!!!
(The new house guest bedroom will have different painted walls and wainscoting on the wall!! PLUS I have a really cool headboard that my hubby is making!)
I'm loving the new airy feeling and I can't wait to share my moving journey with you!!! Cheers!
Have you ever changed your decorating style? Did you get all new items or did you repurpose like me??
