Ok, I am editing my blog this morning to add a rant. Be forewarned. I enjoy looking at blogs that feature decorating as much as anyone. I love to change things up and I am always on the lookout for special items to display in my home. However I am noticing a trend which is bothering me. TOO MUCH of everything! In a well decorated room, the eye can appreciate the decor but also rest and enjoy the room. Some of the blogs I read feature homes with rooms crammed full of everything and there is a hodgepodge of colors, designs and patterns. It makes me want to go and help them edit their rooms. One of my favorite bloggers who has found the happy medium in decorating is Kelly at Talk of the House. Her rooms are colorful and interesting without being overwhelming. The trend of painting furniture is interesting but hey, let's not paint every piece of furniture in our homes.:) I have a feeling that in a year or so, decorators will be stripping away some of this chalk paint and calling it dated.:) Ok, rant over...I feel better!!
