BLANK CANVAS

I'm dying to know: if you could completely start over in your home (budget be damned) how would you decorate? A painted ceiling? A pink sofa? A striped powder room? Let's hear it!

We're going to break ground on our house soon, so this is a question I'm perpetually asking myself! If budget weren't in question, I'd rock chandeliers in unexpected places and really nail it with fabrics and finishes. It may not sound exciting, but that's where the $$$ add up ;) Happy Tuesday, lady! xoxo {av}

{av} — So exciting! I'm all about a surprise chandelier and a little extra crown moulding ;) Can't wait to see your before & afters! xx

I would totally change our base color from beige to gray. We can't because of our couches, etc. but I would LOVE to redo it!

I love white walls & dark wood floors. I would choose to decorate with patterned/colored couches, pillows, rugs & add decorative items in metallics in mirrors, lighting & accessories!

for this gorgeous white space! i would love something unexpected like a striped couch over zebra rug, accents of black and gold and a gorgeous mirror, a lucite coffetable in the middle with a bunch of pink peonies arrangement on a tall glass vase!

now you are making me want to redecorate my house, mackenzie!

I would love a new sofa. ASAP.

I would love to have Lucite dining chairs, white monogrammed everything in my bedroom, and quadrille drapes! and that is only the beginning of that list!

Mackenzie {Design Darling} said...

madeleine — That sounds heavenly! White monograms all around. :)

rich colors, animal wallpaper, huge beds, and a lot of books.

I would love to have this opportunity!! I would probably do brighter colors, more prints, lots of white and lucite!

I just love the idea of a blank canvas :) I'd go with lots of built in fixtures...window seats, cozy nooks, and of course -- a drool-worthy closet!

Grace said...

I would love to have put a four post bed in my room and used some candles and quilts to make it feel warmer!

I would definitely take the challenge to convince my husband to buy better quality furniture, especially the couch. It would probably be a pink or white modern sofa. Basically, I would talk my husband out of all his decor contributions...that sounds terrible! But I can't help it lol

If one I could change anything in my apartment [I rent] and there was no limit to my budget the sky would be the limit! I would start from the floors and go up. I would put in hardwood and real tiles. Paint the walls and some of the ceilings. I would redo the kitchen and both bathrooms and the laundry room...... basically there would be an over haul. I would want things to be white and simple but with great pieces of furniture that just pop in the room. I am so ready to live in a place that is actually mine! :)

Well, there is how I would decorate on my own & how I would decorate with my husband's opinion included. I don't think a pink sofa would fly, but if I were a single girl I may be tempted!

I want to redo our bedroom- the Ikea nightstands and dresser are fine but if I could I would invest in something better. And the bed needs to go! I would love to have a blank slate in there for a nice calm and soothing room.

I would start by replacing the carpet in my home with all hardwood floors. Then I would upgrade my light fixtures. I think enhancing these areas will lead to a "wow" factor.

Excellent information and facts. Only real difficulty I was basically receiving was viewing the pics. No idea exactly why.

I agree, for the most part, but don’t you feel as if the issue is more complex than that?
