Also, my mother has always embraced a philosophy of "matching" that things which look similar or are similar colors "match". She likes prints. She thinks solids are boring. I'm trying to avoid a situation where I've got a living room full of too many kinds of prints in too many shades that don't actually go.
So Pinterest and Houzz to the rescue, right? I mean, it's like weddings. You go through, you pin stuff so that you like here and there, and then eventually, you develop taste? Not really.
Apparently I like green carpets, brightly printed pillows, and our brown couch. But I also like the blue carpet.
And then I remember how much I liked the red and teal color schemes I saw. And how great teal pillows would look with the exposed brick and our brown sofa. And then I consider how much money we would be spending on our living room and that OMG I must make the right decision!
And then, oh yeah, I'm married. To a guy who doesn't really like bright colors or my taste. And I'm busy. We're busy. We don't have a ton of time to shop for home decor. Can you buy a living room in a bag the same way you can buy a bed in a bag with matching curtains? And where do I get that?
Anyone have any home decor resources that might help us out here?
