I feel like I'm pretty solidly okay at picking out paint colors to fit the look I'm trying to achieve for a room. And I'm also pretty okay-ish at picking out the larger wall decor pieces to fit the look I'm trying to achieve.
But I pretty much flat out suck at accessorizing details of a room.
I try and I try to find the things to complete a room.
I browse the aisles of Target, Kirklands, TJ Maxx, and (the online) aisles of Etsy, and usually come home with nothing because if I'm not totally sure about it, then NO.
Lately I've noticed that all of the rooms in our house are very very boring. There are furniture pieces, and some wall decor, and curtains, and that's it.
I feel like every room is missing stuff. The stuff that makes it feel homey, and pretty.
Throw pillows, accessories, anything at all that livens up a room... Every room is missing all of those things.
I think it partly has to do with the fact that last year when we had a garage sale, I was taking the "have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful." quote to heart, and so everything that I just felt "meh" about, went in the garage sale, which left me with barely anything to work with.
So, here I am almost a year since the garage sale, and the only things that I have purchased (as far as home decor goes) in the past year are a couple of lamps from Kirklands, and a print for the kitchen makeover.
And that's fine and good, but the garage sale plus the lack of home decor purchases explain why the rooms in our house feel so...... Boring (and blah).
I'm using these pictures as home accessory inspiration, and am going to hunt down some some accessories to add in to our house so that it feel less blah, and more "ahhhh". Good line, right?
Are the details of a room hard for you? Or are you a genius at accessorizing?
