I was reading a post over on Coco And Kelly yesterday where Cassandra was talking about getting up the 'guts' to do what she really wanted to do in her bedroom make-over.
I left a comment mentioning the oft used phrase 'no guts, no glory!' because I really think we should follow our hearts and our 'gut' and go for something if we are truly yearning for it.
If we can pull it off.... glory awaits!
After all.... we can change a paint colour pretty easily.... replace a print, get new curtains (a bit more expensive) etc.
But, all in all, it probably won't be the end of the world if it fails and we have to re-examine what we've done and make some alterations (or even, oh no..... start over!)
I mused about this sort of 'fear factor' a while ago in a post titled 'What Is It You're Craving For Your Home But Haven't Tried Yet? - 3 Questions To Ask Yourself'.
And then, I found this picture whilst visiting a blog that's great for inspiration - The Lennoxx.
If you click on the pic below you'll get the FULL, massive pic with more furniture in it than you can actually see at first glance.
No guts, no glory indeed!
How fabulous is this pic?
Such big, brave, bold use of pattern on the curtains, the supremely glam choice of furniture and accessories.... the whole thing screams 'going for it' to me, and I think they pulled it off BIG TIME!
What do you really want to do in your home, but haven't had the 'guts' to try yet?
Happy Friday everyone.... I hope you get to do something BIG and BOLD this weekend.
Go for it!
