Life is a daring adventure or nothing...

December 3, 2013

I think its so easy to get comfortable with the way things are that we forget to look for the small tweaks that can make a huge difference.  Sometimes we are forced out of our ruts kicking and screaming (I am oh-so-guilty of the that)  and sometimes we seek out the change as if our life depended on it.


My bathroom was the only room in my house that I hadn't repainted in the last three years.  Why should I?  It worked.  I still liked it.  I was comfortable.   HA! said the universe.  Thanks to a quart of touch-up paint not matching (2 attempts), that bathroom is now newly painted.


In The Daily Love's newsletter this morning (, this line really hit home - "... folks who make a massive impact on the world all take risks. They keep things fresh and reinvent themselves, time and time again."  I think we should do this in our interiors as well.  A fresh coat of paint, rearranging existing knick-knacks, adding a new pillow... they can cost little to no money, but sometimes it's the shift a room needs.


So often with our interiors, people try to be so safe that they end up with boring.  They forget to infuse their tastes into what they purchase.  I was working with a client earlier this week and I was thrilled that while looking at two different rugs, she chose the more daring of the them specifically because it wasn't the "safe" choice.   I'd like to know your thoughts - given the choice of the two rugs pictured, which one would you choose and why?
