If I could capture the essence of any of the many inspirational pictures I've seen, the one above would be it.
As you may or may not remember, I am in the midst of redoing my living room. My mother has given me a blue/white china plate that I simply adore, so I am changing my room from what once was "Old Hollywood Glamour" style, to something a little more ... well, perhaps grown up me?
I am struggling with it though. Because for a room with no "theme" it certainly feels like it.. almost as if I'm trying too hard.. does that make sense? And for those of you that love design as I do.. you must know that is a terrible feeling.. because if it doesn't feel right when putting it together.. it will not feel right ever..
When I had my old Hollywood prints, and my old French ads, it just felt right... perhaps a combination of the two would be good? forget good.. I think it is necessary.. I think perhaps, I am struggling because I may not be able to move on.. to remove my pretty little things I've been in love with for so long.. perhaps a slow "redo" is more suitable than a complete redo..
I am certainly babbling now.. so I will leave you with a few more inspirational images I've found and love..
This post is titled "Elizabeth" as that is what I have named my chair I am in the midst of upholstering for this room. :)
