I think this is what Seth is secretly thinking lately.
You see, I have a problem. Or a few problems. I can’t make simple decisions – like what color to paint our bedroom. And, I actually like to paint.
Translation: I’ve painted our bedroom twice in one day – two different colors. And I did it again this weekend by painting a wall in our living room twice in one day – two different colors.
Because I can’t make up my mind about colors!
Remember when I wanted to paint our rooms gray? Well, it took me over a year to work up the nerve to try it. I took my time researching a “good gray” to use in our master. (Is it grey or gray? What’s the difference?) I got swatches from my local paint store and taped them to the wall. And I finally decided on….
Not too blue, not too dark, not too light. Just right
Until it was on my walls. Three hours later, I didn’t like it. It was like a baby blue color. Seth didn’t think so. Neither did our friend that was visiting. But I thought it was blue. I don’t even have a picture to show anyone because I hated it so much I had to paint over it immediately (or, as soon as I got home from work that day).
So it got painted again, in the same day. To this:
Not a major difference, right? But man, what a difference! It’s the same color we used in our main bathroom. And I love it in there.
In the bedroom, well, I like it. I’m not sure I love it. Which is why it took me over a week to pull off the tape, just in case I decided to paint it for the third time in a week!
yes, there is a person and a dog hanging out in that sadly unmade bed.
I got this duvet on super sale from Urban Outfitters. Sadly, I can’t decide if I like it or not. I mean, I like it. But I just don’t know if it’s too modern/too geometric for our house and style.
What do you think? Does anyone else have design impairments like me?
On another note, I spent yesterday painting my entry way. You guessed it. Twice. Once was gray. Next was Kilim Beige to match the rest of the house.
Now it matches the wall behind it and next to it – in Sherwin Williams Kilim Beige.
