last night, at a very late hour i had a revelation.
i am not a neutral.
when we bought our house i had an insanely difficult time decorating. picking out paint colors, choosing room colors, themes, etc. took me hours upon hours of decision making time. ridiculous waste, i know.
i ended up painting everything brown. chocolate brown, latte brown, hazelnut brown. brown's are neutral. everyone likes brown. brown matches everything.
2.5 years later, i'm going insane.
i should've known i couldn't do the whole "go with neutral then you can use your pops of color wherever you want" thing. (jenna hood you were so right! i should've listened!!)
even though we don't plan on staying here for too long, i need color.
i need pizzaz and bright pops of color bursts all over the place. i need bold. eclectic. i need a room that i can sit in, look around for the 5millionth time, sigh and say, "this is such a great room." i need motivation. i need constant inspiration - or my mind goes to a boring place.
when i had this realization (at the most inopportune time) i randomly proclaimed to hubby, "i am not neutral!!! what was i thinking!?!?... what are YOU?" without flinching, he said back, "i am drive. (i busted out laughing and he responds with) er, i can be reverse. we are talking about car gears here right?!" hahahahah nerd. and then he says, "if we are talking about home decor, i am whatever you are, baby." aww. that's my man.
all of this to say - it's about to get a little crazy over at the mig house. get ready. (jenna hood - call me. we've got work to do.)
...i wonder what this brief post says about me as a person? oh man. no let's not visit that thought. hahaha.
