Taking A Walk On The Wild Side
This couldn't be Susan P's powder room, could it? Believe it or not, it is!! Don't y'all fall over now:) I know, I know, it's quite different from my usual decorating! Several years ago I never would have had my powder room decorated like this ~ things change, though, and I decided I really wanted to "spice" things up a bit!! Well, I think I accomplished that:) Okay, you can pick yourself up off the floor now!
If you look closely you might notice there is a suede texture to the wall ~ a big thank you to my dear Miss Bonnie for working diligently on this project!! The color is absolutely beautiful, it's just not reading it correctly on camera.

Another thing I have noticed is that my tastes in colors are changing, too. I use to love only pastels, and now my eyes are drawn to chocolate browns, gold, and burgundy.
Does this happen to y'all too? Have you found that your tastes seem to change with the years? If so, how? If you have been "hemming" and "hawing" about wanting to make a change but were afraid to, let me encourage to "just do it!!"
Who know's, you might even take a little walk on the "wild" side!!

I LOVE it! Beautiful!

I will be 45 on Monday and I have noticed that my tastes have changed and I am never afraid to change it up a bit and that includes my hairstyle. :))

One thing that doesn't change is my need to re-arrange the furniture every few months. I wear my family out with this but I think it gives a room a fresh change. :)

My tastes have definitely changed through the years. I used to be more "American country" and now I still enjoy country but it's far more feminine and "English country".

My daughter called me last week to tell me "Cottage style" had died at her house. Her living room furniture had always been white but with four kids, washing the slipcovers didn't work, anymore.

Last week they purchased two chocolate brown leather sofas. Everyone else loves them but she's still trying to adjust. :)

Very pretty!

And yes my tastes have changed too. I used to love pastels too but now I prefer warmer colors.

Love your new look and I also admire the dark colors. Love the browns with the blues and pinks. Yes we do change a long the way of life and we are never boring.
