My tastes have changed so much over the years. I used to LOVE french country and shabby chic interiors. As a matter of fact, my first home was a small cape decorated totally Rachel Ashwell style. My living room consisted of two sofas facing each other in front of a fire place. The sofas were slipcovered in three different fabrics; a floral, a stripe and a pique. The coffee table was distressed wood and the rug was sisal bordered in red.
I was able to find this picture of my oldest son when he was only a few weeks old sleeping on this mushy couch. (See him in the upper left hand corner?) Cannot believe he is 6 1/2 years old now!
Now, I am the complete opposite. While I wouldn't go as far as say my style is modern, it is definitely way more contemporary. I prefer clean lines and very little clutter. However, while the past few years I preferred mostly neutral colors, I have started to get into bright bold colors as well. And now that I am blessed with three boys, my love of the color pink has only catapulted ;-)
How awesome does pink look in these rooms?
