When I moved into my apartment nearly three years ago, I was very very lucky that the living area had already been decorated by my lovely roommates. I was lucky not only because they have excellent taste, but because I suffer from severe Decorating Paralysis. If left to my own devices, I will always live surrounded by things I meant to hang on the wall and decorating projects that I'll surely get to someday. As I've mentioned, it's genetic.
My Decorating Paralysis has flown under the radar for the most part over the last three years because our apartment was already decorated. Unfortunately for me, I think it's about to surface again. As I type this, framed photos are coming off the walls, pretty books are being packed away, and soon furniture will be ushered into a moving van—in short, my roommate is moving out and becoming a wife. And with her goes much of the charming decor of our apartment.
So, this seems like the perfect time to confront my paralysis, don't you think? I'm feeling a bit inspiration-less, so I'll be scouring Pinterest & the like and reporting back over the next week or so. And hopefully, posting pictures in the coming weeks of completed projects. Here's to hoping!
