Decorating Paralysis

Guys. I need HELP.

Major help.

We've lived in our house for almost a year now so I decided that it has high time we started to make it our own. I decided to start in the master bedroom and go from there. I created this vision in my head and thought it would be a snap to create.

oh how wrong I was.

It took me probably 2 weeks, hours of research, and 7 paint samples before I finally chose a paint color. I had the perfect bedding all picked out and it arrived two days before we painted. I was so excited to put it all together and figured once it was in place, everything else would be easy.

Again, WRONG.

Now that we've painted and the bedding is in it's rightful home, I can't do anything! I have ideas of what I want and I find something that I love, yet I don't buy it. I don't know how to take the image in my head and make it a reality in my room.

Walls are blue. Bedding is gray and white. I want pops of yellow. Hours on Pinterest have not helped my cause either.

I need a lovely decorating friend to help me ASAP.

Or any advice would also be appreciate. This room is stressing me out.

Why couldn't I be artistically gifted?

100 Days: 1-10

So far I'm 10 days in to the #100happydays challenge. I'm ABSOLUTELY loving it. It's so wonderful to find the little things every day that make me smile. I'm finding that life is THAT much more enjoyable now.


So, lets recap the last 10 days.

Day 1: lovely ring dish from my love

Day 2: Picking out paint colors for our bedroom. !HINT! It's not either of these colors

Day 3: Been on my bucket list forever to finally have a passport. Now to travel the world

Day 4: I finished studying this list for Jazz History. I HATE THIS CLASS

Day 5: Our customized park maps for our upcoming Disney World vacation came in the mail

Day 6: My husband and I exchanging sappy love notes of FB. Yes, We're THAT kind of couple :)

Day 7: My fur-babies! Charlie and Molly. I sure love cuddling with them!

Day 8: My bestie, Trina, sent me this baseball cap for Christmas. Seattle is my favorite city!

Day 9: Hard to see, but my hubby left me a love note in the steam on the mirror #truelove

Day 10: Our new bedding came today from Amazon. I'm so excited to be updating our bedroom!

I'll do another recap in a few days. But seriously, everyone do this challenge. It's changing my life for the better and I can't wait to see how I feel once I complete it.

Find your happy, dears.
