I recently stumbled upon a new blogger and her decorating style quickly became embedded in my brain. Since then, I've taken several trips back to her blog as I often do when I find a blog that speaks to me. Becca at Adventures in Decorating coined a new phrase, or rather, affliction that stopped me dead in my tracks. For years I thought I was crazy. I knew there were others out there, but never knew it had a name! It's called, ADD, Attention Decorating Disorder. Symptoms include constantly moving accessories around, switching furniture out, painting and repainting your walls, and still never being quite satisfied with the end result. Besides being in love with Becca's decor, I was so glad to meet a kindred spirit, and one who wasn't afraid to stand up for the rest of us and admit it! My name is Kim, and I have ADD! Now please don't think for a second that I'm mocking anyone who really suffers from ADD. My own sweet 9 year-old, Amy, has had it for years and is on medication for it. I just love the idea at poking fun at ourselves for our innocent little idiosyncrasies. Are ya with me?
My most recent bout of ADD presented itself in my Living Room. I've been tweaking and tweaking and retweaking this room for months and I think I finally got it right, at least for now. I loved the idea of having a wallscape using some of the vintage mirrors I had lying around, (to see that post, go here) only every time I looked at it, it seemed "off". I couldn't figure out what was "off", just knew something was. SOOOO, after many nailholes and tons of spackle, I think I finally achieved the look I was going for. I just had the wrong mirror in the middle.
While I was at my In-Laws the other night, I found an old dirty mirror in a box in their garage. I asked them if I could have it, cause I'm bold like that, and they said yes! I came right home, cleaned it off and made the switcheroo. Poof! Perfection!
Now, go over to Becca's blog and check out her gorgeous home! Trust me, you will not be disappointed!
