For someone like myself who would NOT enjoy a surprise party (for myself), I do love the unexpected. Like, last minute tickets for a concert (got tickets to see Kings of Leon at Madison Square Garden six hours before the show!) Or, friends and family telling me they're coming to town the very next day for a visit! And, a decorating surprise like a chair in a bathroom! Love it!
How about something different in a side chair? There's comfy fully upholstered- yeh, I've got that. But what about thinking outside the box and going for a leather sling arm? Or a rattan barrel chair? Or even a metal arm? C'mon, let's go with something different for a change!
I love when a color is used in fashion and then also decor! It's interesting to see how it comes across--does it work better when I'm wearing that color? Does it look best as an accent in a room? Sometimes both... I have this amazing gold, black, olive paisley scarf that I drape on my dining table and I also wrap it around my waist and wear it as a skirt! I wore it first and then needed an accent for the table and thought, why not ?? It looks amazing either way, and since then I've been going to my closet more and more for inspiration in the home. I recently saw a gorgeous pale peach colored wall paint and have been looking for that color in nail polish since…where does your inspiration come from??
