At least in my world there is.
I have a pink dilemma, and I thought what better place to try and figure it out than on Think Pink Monday.
It seems that every time I redecorate a room I face the same problem, and it doesn’t matter what colour I’m using. It’s always a balancing act between the two sides of my decorating self.
“I’m a little bit funky,
and I’m a little bit traditional.”
The traditional me is calm and peaceful and wants everyone to chill.
The funky me wants patterns and textures that are cool and a little bit ca-razy.
The traditional me wants patterns and tones that are pretty and well behaved.
So what is the master bedroom going to get?
Right now the room is a little bit funky with the toile dresser and the tea cup lampshade. But it’s also a little bit traditional with the hand embroidered duvet cover and the painting over the bed
But it feels like it’s missing something to me… and what it’s missing is pink.
If I go the way of da funk I’ll definitely need to replace the painting over the bed and the duvet cover too. They’re both just too traditional to go with the funky fabrics. (I would definitely keep them though because I love them.)
If I go with traditional fabrics I don’t think I need to change anything that I’ve done so far. I think the funky elements would still go with the traditional fabrics.
All the fabrics shown are from my thrifted fabric stash that I’ve accumulated over time. I bought them all just because I loved them. There’s a tablecloth, a sheet set, a shower curtain, a throw, and actual fabric too. Some will be used for window treatments, and others will be accents in the room.
Either way it will feel like me, and John’s good with whatever I choose… because he’s awesome like that.
So what’s this pink lady to do? I usually just follow my gut instinct, but it’s no help at all this time because I keep changing my mind.
Do you ever have trouble deciding which way to go style wise? Or is it just me?
