I found this short and truthful quote the other day whilst browsing one of my favourite blogs Belle Maison...
“Most people start out wanting to go for their fantasy, but end up painting their walls dove-white.”
- Raymond Boozer
I so loved it, that it's inspired me to start a new regular (or semi-regular) post entitled 'Fearless Fantasy Fridays'.
These posts will be to feature rooms where people haven't 'chickened out' and resorted to playing it safe at the last moment.
'Feel the fear and do it anyway' is my motto (and also the name of a great book by Susan Jeffers for those who like motivational reading).
You only live once.... and at the very least could try ramping up your wall colour. An adventure into bold walls only needs a new can of paint or some new wallpaper if it goes wrong!
Not the end of the world.
And, if you felt like taking a risk with the furniture, who could resist gorgeous purple chairs and an oversized purple lamp?
Viva la fantasy!
