There are some things in life that I am good at (surely, there is, right?), but there are LOTS of things I am not. One of them is jewelry. I'm terrible with jewelry. The second is hanging things. I'm terrible. I have no confidence when in comes to hanging things. My sweet sister-in-law knows to come hammer ready when she visits from Texas. I always have something for her to help me hang. She, on the other hand, is excellent at both jewelry and hanging. The third thing I admit to not being good at, is rugs. I'm just not good at it. Mainly, because I am soooooo picky. I tend to go for something kind of plain. I love pattern and color, but it's just one of those weird picky things for me. I have a hard time finding anything I like. They're usually soooooo busy that it's just too much for my little brain to handle, so I just don't fall in love with rugs.
Having said that, this is what I had in mind for the living room.
Also, I am aware that I need to make some pillows, etc. for the couches. I'm just trying to get the rug picked first and do a little at a time. It's so........void of color in there, except for my gold walls.
