Split Personalities

Sometimes I swear I have split personalities. For example, I LOVE this bedding from HERE.
I love both colors and how fresh, light and feminine it is. Yet, I find myself really wanting this bear sham too- the complete opposite.
While we are talking about bedding, I am LOVING this fabric but not sure where I would use it. I am thinking maybe a new bed for Harry (our dog)?
How many people out there have very different, opposite styles that they love equally?

Lauren said...

Yep! There is just so many wonderful fabrics out there! I love to combine girlie with a bit of rustic!

And...our friends' dog's name is "Moose"...He would love this fabric! :)

i do! i like an all white interior. but equally, i like houses with big bright splashes of colors.i like open spaces but also heart the cosiness of an english cottage...xxx

I am so the same way. I love modern but then traditional.

my favorite and my best said...

emphatic hand raising.

Variety is a good thing and should be welcomed. Nothing to worry dear for sure there are lots of others like you...me for one:)

JMW said...

I know what you mean...I love the look of crisp, white slipcovered, beachy decor, while I also love dark jeweled-tone paint colors that you often see in Ralph Lauren ads. Must be the Gemini in me. :)

Were you looking at me when you asked that question? :)

Sweet Nothings said...

i feel like that is half the fun! merging all the styles into your own personal home :)

LindsB said...

I totally do, and its a struggle with them all everyday :)

Marianne, I cannot tell you how much this plagues me! I'll go in one direction and then wish I'd gone in the complete opposite. It's even true of how I live. I live in the city, but I love quiet country life, too... and on it goes! If I were a little more wealthy I suppose this would be less of a problem--I could just have my summer house, my city abode, my pied a terre, and so on...
As it is, I just torture my boyfriend by redecorating sort of frequently :-)

Beth Dunn said...

I'm so with you. But I chose my house decor on the house/location and the fact that I live with all men. Nothing feminine here but my car and clothes xoxo

Yansy said...

I'm exactly the same. I struggle with same problem when it comes to my home however I don't do it with my clients. I wonder why.

Molly Jean said...

there isn't a style i don't adore if executed well

Blair said...

Oh, I definitely do! That would be so cute for a dog bed. Love your new header:)

Under a Green Roof said...

I know what you mean - some days I want to paint the whole house white, other days I want to paint every wall a different color. love both bedding choices!

nestegg said...

ME! That's why I can't do my own house- I like TOO many things.
This post makes me laugh because I went shopping this weekend and fell in love with a big pillow that had an OWL on it. So random.

I do too; it can make decisions so difficult. One minute I'm loving very graphic, modern prints but then I end up being drawn to a tratdional floral. I guess that is why I am always drawn to interiors that are a mix of styles!

lizziefitz said...

I do, which leads to buyers remorse and a collection of things I will use somewhere down the road lol!

Down Pillow said...

I have my usual feminine style, but I have a great appreciation for lots of other styles, too - as long as they're done beautifully.
