Inspired by my outfit choices yesterday, I created a design board, or "set", on Polyvore.
You may have noticed me posting lots of these sets over the weekend. I'm still getting the hang of navigating Polyvore, but creating sets is loads of fun for someone who dreams of being an interior decorator like I do. There are also Project Decorate contests where someone can win $500 to a fun shop. This Classic Eclectic/Modern Edge room is part of Albertina's contest.
The textures in this room excite me. The smoothness of the velvet on the Milo Baughman chairs. The knobbly lines of the bamboo magazine rack. The gritty sisal rug. Not to mention the foo dog lamps and chandelier.
And then there are the colors. Oh, the springtime colors! There is the rich green of the malachite storage containers on the credenza. The almost-neon of the pink and green in the painting. The candy-colored spines of the classic children's books. Definitely a room I could relax and read the newspaper in while rocking at least one of Vivaldi's Four Seasons.
The One Room Challenge Linking Party begins in one week! I participated last fall by re-designing my mom's laundry room, long-distance, while we waited to move to our new house. I had BIG plans for what I would do for this round, then decided I had too much on my plate to accomplish anything significant, and now?? I'm so pumped from everyone else's excitement and the little nudge of "even if you are not totally finished, you are further than you were six weeks ago" that I think I'll give it a go. What's life if you can't change your mind, right?! I can't wait to see what all my blogging friends come up with. :)
