Personality Plus: Colour, Pattern + Texture

Personality Plus: Colour, Pattern + Texture

September 9, 2013

We’re gearing up for a number of home improvement projects at our house which is generally quite exciting but, considering how busy Brad + I both anticipate being at work over the next few months, is also quite overwhelming. And our budget is very limited so we’re going to have to come up with a game plan and get creative with our DIY’s. Our basement suite tenants moved out a couple of weeks ago and this will be the first time that we’ll living in the entire house, meaning our living/playing/working/breathing space will officially double in size. Double YAY!! We’ll be shuffling bedrooms around (the kids will each have their own room), creating an art/playroom as well as a cozy tv room. But there’s loads to do, starting with a few gallons of white paint, and I need some serious inspiration to get me motivated. Spaces full of colour, texture and pattern never fail to get my creative juices flowing and these rooms and settings are just oozing layers of personality…

What gets you motivated to jump into a big project? While I love Pinterest and reading other blogs for inspiration, I’m prone to spending too much time “browsing” for ideas and less time doing. Can any of you relate? So, as Brad would say, “there’s nothing to it but to do it”! I’ve been collecting random furniture pieces and wall art over the past few weeks and at least a couple of the new/revised rooms are starting to come together, in my head at least. Once we dig in, I’ll keep you posted with plenty of before and after’s along the way 🙂
