Ah, screw it.

I really like that soft, neutrals/pastels/dusty old feminine colors look, and I want to be the sort of person who surrounds myself in some sort of magical fairyland of prettiness, like this person or this person or especially this person. I do. It's so... pretty.

But the fact of the matter is...

I think I might just like color too much.

So, fine, color. I guess you win. I embrace you.

But someday I'm going to make JUST ONE ROOM pretty, ok?

(Speaking of color, I've finally got some mixed-fiber "wild card" batts up in the etsy shop! I managed to only spin two of them. It was hard.)

  1. I hear ya! I lust after all those pretty, dreamy, pastel cottages and rooms, too! And as hard as I've tried to get my bedroom to be the ONE room that embodies that pretty spirit...I just can't do it. I end up throwing something crazily multi-colored in the mix and then it all just goes to pot. :)

  2. I was just thinking about this. I love that soft romantic look but when it comes down to it, I always choose bold and colorful. It just makes me happier in the long run.

  3. I'm the same way! No matter how much I love dreamy romantic stuff and decorating, I always end up with kitschy brightness - usually centered on red+turquoise. I guess I should just embrace it!

  4. Heh, me too. I think I'm just constitutionally unable to make things pretty like that though. (I'm not being very successful at non-saturated colors lately)
