Give me a stranger and after a chat and a look at the space I can start formulating a game plan. I find them inspiration shots, draw up furniture layouts and scour my sources for the perfect fabric, chair, artwork, etc.
Give me a family member and it's even easier. They normally give me complete design control so I can just do what I'm obsessing about at the moment.
Then you have yourself.
-You like everything so it's hard to pick out one particular thing.
-You become obsessed that you didn't check out every single one of your vendors and what if they have the perfect thing and you just don't know it yet.
-You can not pull the trigger on anything, because you're likes/dislikes change daily.
-You have no where near as high of a budget as your clients, but you have champagnes tastes.
Not a fun combo. Add to that the fact that the new blog look and professional site are almost like 99% finish and about to be wrapped up and you finally need to shoot your house.
To shoot your house said house needs to actually be finished.
I've finally bite the bullet and started to make decisions and finish up spaces or start fresh after I was almost finished :) to get the perfect space. So just like my website/new blog are 99% finished this house of mine is 99% finished.
One of the projects that I'm about to tackle is my staircase.
Over a year ago I decided to add a little wow factor to the stairs that led upstairs:
How to instructions here.
I love them.
I'm now deciding what I'm going to do on the wall going up the staircase.
Should we just have one or two pieces of art and/or mirrors on it:
Or should we fill it up with a variety of colorful and black/white pieces and frames:
Or in the middle where we do the same style color/frames with either all black/white or color pictures :
I'm sort of leaning towards a combo of options 2/3. So a mix of colorful artwork, some black/white pictures, some colors, but in the same color frames to keep some consistency.
Now I just need some hand holding to tell me it's the right or wrong decision. That's where you come in.... :)
