A little change



We moved into this house a year ago.  I was excited that there was a red wall because I've always wanted a red wall.  Or so I thought.  After one year of looking at that red wall I wanted nothing more than for that red wall to go away.
And so it did.  It took me a few hours, but the red wall is no longer.
Hello "pebbblestone" wall (kind of a green/gray/tan color). I went ahead and took it around the bay window wall also.
I think it totally changes the whole feel of the room.  Lighter, brighter, fresher.
And if you're good at noticing details, you'll notice I switched the sofas in the two rooms.  I don't know if it's better or worse but I needed a change.

This room has more of a traditional feel now.  Why do I feel the need to change things around?  Some people leave everything in their house the same way for years and years.


I would be so terribly miserable!

Becky,
You wonder why you allways want to change things and your not sure why?

Remember you are your mothers daughter. Her middle name is change.

I really like what you did. My mind tells me I would like to change a few things, but my back screams NO, NO, NO. So---if you have done all you want to your house, come to mine.
