Me, Myself and a red.neck

Sew…I’m going to re-do my bedroom…except, I do believe I am dealing with a few different personalities, all in one red-headed red.neck

My conflict? I like… modern. I like traditional. I like shabby chic. I like contemporary. I like romantic/Victorian. I like eclectic. Anything vintage – I’m all over it. I like cottage style. Art Deco gets me each and every time. I can be traditional if need be… the list goes on!!! More color = more fun is my motto! My house is a modge podge of every style…if I like it, it goes in... Doesn’t matter what era it hails from, if it works – it works! I have sought counseling for my multiple decorating personalities…

Rustic Revival - You can take kid out of the country but you can't take the country out of the kid... or is your theme "you can take the kid out of the city, but you can't take the city out of the kid?" Either way you play it, you are one of the unique individuals who love a mix of modern and country. The clean lines of the modern softened by rustic /vintage elements are the perfect mix in your mind. And can we blame you? You've taken the best aspects of two popular designs and mixed them in a manner that appeals young and old alike. A subtle background of white or light colors provides a nice canvas for all the wonderful flea market, eBay or garage sale finds as well as the classic modern pieces that you love.

I took a quiz! (Please excuse me, but I forgot where I found this quiz!) It wasn’t a lot of help – these things I already knew about myself! Augh! Help!

Dilemma No. One…

I could sleep in the moderny/minimalist/contemporaryish room and LOVE it / I could sleep in the romantic cream colored room and LOVE it! So…what if I marry the two?

Maybe add a few more linens?

A girl can’t have too many types of linen…and those shoes? *sigh/gulp/instant lust*

Now…I’ll admit, I like to lie in bed, 50 pillows under my chin and read smut novels – NO! I meant edumacational books! Geez…personality no. 2 typed that…This leads me to Dilemma No. 2.

I can read by the clean lined funkiness of the table lamp / I can read by the gorgeous sparkles of the crystal chandelier!So…what if I take the sparkles and hang them in a funky way?

Yep…that would work! Do you think my overly obese cat (he is not aware of the fact that he is indeed a cat…) would like the dangly sparkles? Hmmm….

Dilemma No. 3…How do I store my latest and greatest duct tape book? (Thank You Jan!)

I would adore my duct tapin’ tips & techniques stacked up high / I would adore my duct tapin’ tips & techniques stacked on a chair with a flower posy on top!I have no solution to this one, so I’m thinking…how about a little bit of both? And of course, either way it will have a pretty posy on top!

Dilemma No. 4….

Storage. The standard chest of drawers just doesn’t work for me! My paint stained duct tape and lace shirts could look FAN-TAB-U-LOUS if housed in the proper location! Location, location, location…

I love the FUN and funkiness of option A., I love the girly/frilly/”play dress up here” of option B.! What if I combine the fun/funky with the vintage flair red.neck no. 2 seems to be drawn too?

Oh yeah! Lockers in the bedroom? If they have the sheen of duct tape – definitely. Can I have the dress too? It doesn’t match the shoes, but it’s a bedroom…I have to build my wardrobe.

I am lucky lucky to have the room for a seating area! I have always just had empty space (well, except for the pesky junk that finds its way into the empty space…) but this time around I’m thinking…pull up a chair! Which leads me to Dilemma No. 5…

I like the idea of a chaise lounge / I like the idea of a daybed! But – since it’s a bedroom and I already have a bed…what if I did two BIG chairs?! Hmmmm…

Do you see my dilemmas? I could go either way! My bedroom could possibly be the poster child for “when red.neck styles collide”… AUGH!

What do you think? Am I the only one in the world where decorating styles collide? Am I the only red.neck with dueling banjos? Oh…dueling personalities? Tell me your design dilemmas’ so I’m not so lonely!

I’m just going to take me, myself and I (plus the fat cat) and move outside…

‘Til the next time! Happy Decorating – to Each and Every one of you…even if that is just you…or yourself…

Comin' to you LIVE from a single-wide...hee-hee
