Hubby and the kids are out shopping and I am clearing out the living room boxes. We bought a house up in NJ ( due to a family illness) and the decorating is horrible. Wallpaper with gold background-UGH. Our townhouse in Florida is decorated in a pretty Key West style. Hardwood floors, deep pastel paints and white plantation shutters. Kind of that crisp pottery barn feel. So I went our and bought some paint last week. I pinted my hallway a pretty light mint green with white trim and now I want to start the living room and dining room. So I have a medium pink pastel paint that I want to do the the living room. I am trying to get that Rachel Ashwell shabby chic look, I bought her floral curtains from target and have her comforter for my white iron daybed (which will be in there until I order a white couch and 2 white chairs from IKEA). The white furniture from IKEA has slipcovers which I want so much. I thought of putting lots of pastel print pillows in the room and have all white tables and a white wall unit. What I wish to ask "would your husband/sig. other flip if you did something like this"? My husband has always let me decorate any way I wanted and I had pink Laura Ahsley in all my master bedrooms (we moved alot). What was the best or worse decorating thing you ever did? I'll let you know later how the room turns out. My husband should be happy he does not have to paint, I find it very relazing to paint and transform a room.
