The One Room Challenge has been over for a month now, I made over my stairwell here. And for as happy as I am with all the work I accomplished in those 6 six weeks, sadly I haven’t finished the project. For whatever reason I can’t seem to pull the trigger on a trim color for the draperies. Here is the space in case you’d like a refresher.
My first thought was to go the greek key route, however with the giant art in the stairwell, I think doing a solid might have a bigger impact. I naturally drift towards neutrals in my own home since I change my mind so frequently. But I can only do so many neutrals before I want to pull my hair out from being bored.
So this is what I’m thinking,
RED! This has been a favorite Elle Decor vignette of mine for some time. Everything looks so crisp, bright and classic. And I think I can really work the red trim in the stairwell. The woman in our art is wearing red and I think it would have a classic feel with our blue/gray wall color. But I can’t help myself from wanting to play it “safe” and go with a black or navy blue like these treatments from House & Home, so I don’t tire of the draperies too soon.
I was kinda hoping by taking the time to post on this and put everything together I’d come to a conclusion, but I’m finding myself just a lost as I was before. Maybe it’s a bit too much to think about with Christmas or maybe I’m just looking for excuses to procrastinate.
Care to weight in with your thoughts? What do you do when you can’t make up your mind?
