I am in the mood for change. I feel restless with my surroundings, with me.
I am not looking to move house or city or even job, no no I am more than happy with these.
No, I need a make over on a big scale.
This isn't something I woke up with this morning, it has been verging for some weeks.
Oh the Winter, it imprisoned me forcing me to ponder my navel and when I couldn't stand that
I began to notice things.
My decor looked tired.
I felt tired and sluggy.
There was SO much clutter around my home.
I felt cluttered.
I felt fat.
Oh my, I have gotten fat!!!
Hmmm, what to do, what to do....I know!
Brainstorm with a bag of raspberry licorice (oh that deserves a post on its own)
TODAY is the day!
The makeover begins !
This is my family room and where I will begin.
This weekend I will say good bye to the green wall. I love green and once enjoyed having this shade everywhere. I recently painted the dining white and the hallway, I love the lightness of having white all around me using colour to accent.
I will be changing the curtains to something lighter even though I quite like these curtains, maybe they go up again in when the colder weather returns. The rug is already in the hallway, my brother in law sent it to us from Dubai some years ago and it is thick luxurious.
The cushions must be changed and the coffee table is bit worse for wear too. Sadly though my purse strings are drawn tight at the moment and this will be on a budget. I hope I can surprise myself and achieve something that feels fresh and new and not too dodgy!
The will be lots of change posted here in the next few weeks, I hope I can share it with you.
