This is a long post, so make yourself comfortable on this one……It’s been awhile since I did a lengthy decorating post and I thought this would be a fun topic to talk about.

I’ve written on the subject of finding your style (5 years ago) before and let me tell you, I certainly don’t have it all figured out.

I still have that Ethan Allen sofa (bought in 2004) and those 2 caramel leather chairs.

The chair of many fabrics has gone to a friend of mine.

It’s no wonder that so many of us have honed and changed and remade so many things that we own, trying to find our true style over the years. If I look back to 1985, I was smack dab in the middle of the 80’s pastels just like many of you were. When I look back at pictures of my house in the late 90’s and even going into the new decade of 2000, I don’t love what I see.

We can’t help but be swayed by magazines and TV shows and what is deemed popular and trendy at the moment. I may look back at where my home is now in decorating taste in 10 years and hate it all. How do you update what you have now to last into another decade of design and trends? Not many of us can afford to completely change everything in our homes at once. I have good solid pieces of furniture that have served me well for many years. I’ve learned a few things over the years of how to change things up and what things to switch out that will freshen up a room and make it feel current and new. Don’t laugh (well, I don’t blame you if you do), you were probably there too.

Cutting out wallpaper flowers and making a little swirly statement across the top of my door was fun and creative. I’d say there are probably a few things on the list, but I won’t name any right now. My vintage buffet that is still in my dining room has been with me for a long while too. It came with me to Birmingham and lasted awhile longer, but I grew tired of the over the top Tuscan/Roman look that we all got caught up in. Greens and reds were all the rage back then, those jewel tones took over and we all had them. I am still using these vintage wood nightstands in my bedroom too. We all got caught up in the European/Tuscan thing and it was everywhere.

I had it all maxed out with accessories, flanked with matching traditional lamps and more floral arrangements. There’s the old bunny red fabric and the valance my mom made for me. I did update this bedroom around 2000 to this lighter and airier look and fell in love with toile. My mom made these toile drapes for me and I just loved this look and was so proud of this bedroom…then. But there can be too much of a good thing, can’t there?

You younger girls who have not been keeping house this long may not remember these trends and styles that well, but your mother probably did this. Then the red kick came along and I had to have red in the living room.
