As my sunroom was coming together, I stopped. The fact is, it wasn't coming together. It felt like something was missing. I didn't like it and I wasn't comfortable in it. I kept moving things around and looking for things to put here and there and waiting for it to be awesome. I haven't shown you pictures of it or had a big reveal post because I just don't like it. So, I decided to take a step back and rethink it. Problem is, I don't know what to rethink. Everything in there looks good. So, why don't I like it?
As I took a break from the sunroom, I decided to catch up on some blogs. As I was reading The Painted Hive, it hit me. Kristine did a post the other day on ways to dress up a bed and featured a lot of pictures of bedrooms. Many of the bedrooms were overall very neutral which is the look I was going for but a couple of the pictures were a bit different. When I saw this one....
...it all made sense to me. Of all the great pictures she featured, I was drawn to this one. While I don't LOVE every single thing in it, I LOVE the overall style. This picture is me. It has neutral walls, vintage decor, antiques, chippy paint, rusted pieces, metal, and....wait for it....COLOR! I realized I am not a neutral person. I must have some color and preferably a little red color splashed about. I need some contrast, some diversity, some pop. I think it describes my personality. People who know me wouldn't describe me as a neutral person at all. I'm one of those who likes some cherry, vanilla and lime in my Sonic Sprite.
So, I'm making some changes to the sunroom redo you never saw. I'm adding some color. Hopefully, now that I have a plan I'm excited about, I can get that darn room finished and start enjoying. I will post pictures when it is just the way I want it.
Are you neutral? How do you like your Sonic drink?
