An no, the answer isn’t more cowbell, its home decor. I’m sick of my living room and want to upgrade. Its been decorated with the same stuff for over three years now which to me is much too long. In my past life I would have a new living room entirely, maybe even two, in a three year span. I need to keep it movin’.
I have been so inspired by modern design and especially the color palette of gray and white. I stalked the IKEA website last week and put together this little idea of perfection:
I fell madly in love. My husband? Let out a loud BOO. I feel like our tastes used to be identical and are slowly shifting in different directions. (I’m wondering if he saw an actual living room in this decor if he would feel differently than just looking at a mood board.)
So I’m on the prowl of something so grand that even my husband will agree we need an update. One problem is that our walls are tan and I am not into any designs that match with tan and he refuses to paint.
I get such an urge for change every few months. I just don’t like staring at the same things day in, day out. I keep bringing up a kitchen remodel, adding onto the house, or just buying a new one completely. I’m happy I’ve just managed to stay in one house for 6 years really – that is definitely the longest I’ve lived anywhere. PLUS, I work here, at home, so shouldn’t I get first say on what it looks like? I mean, I rarely look at anything else!
Hey husband, what do you think of these?
