not a beige kinda guy
Many people live in beige surroundings. They are safe and comforting. If you are one of those people that live in a beige world and you have been wanting something different.You feel stifled or you can't make a decision as to what to do with your living environment. Try something new. Stay with beige but infuse it with some colour and pattern. It is like with anything new you gradually get used to it. The comfort of colour feels exciting. Pattern becomes your new best friend. You are walking on the wild side. Don't go overboard.
If you are on a budget and desire a change, consider a fresh coat of paint. dress up your sofa with new pillows that can be purchased at any department store. I would ask you to go to a speciality home decor store. They have a wider selection.Rememeber make your home as indivual as yourself.
Surround yourself with things that you love. If you are into collecting, buy something new to give your room a renewed look. Have fun with this. Don't overdo it. Stay with a common theme. Take your paint or fabric swatch with you. Mistakes can be costly. If you have realized that this is not an easy task please hire a designer. A professional designer can save you from making costly mistakes.
Make your escape from beige carefully. It can be scary out there.
Walk carefully. Take baby steps and you will leave your beige world behind.
