I've had a realization. Perhaps an obvious one, but one I needed to come to in my own time...
You see, I had a little design envy when it came to color and pattern, two areas that don't naturally light my fire. I was intrigued by the designers who could do both with such ease. It looked fun.
So I thought, 'I'll show myself I can do that too,' and vowed to go colorful and bold in my San Francisco apartment. Which I did, and which I love. But, I find myself yearning for white all over again and promising myself that in my next home (I tend to move a lot...) I'll go back to my true roots and first loves: neutrals, earth tones, and textural solids.
Sometimes you have to stray a little and try something totally new to realize that what you already were and what you already loved, is perfectly...YOU.
Have you had any style epiphanies too?
