I'm addicted to HGTV, and it's not just me. Millions tune in and watch people buy houses, fix up houses, get decorating tips. My favorite is Househunters. Is it because we like a peek at other people's lives or is that we like to imagine ourselves in that position? Whichever it is, that's kind of what we do as readers too. We put ourselves in the homeowners shoes and then take those things we learn and apply them to our lives.
Right now, I'm eyeing my dining and living rooms. I want to strip off the wallpaper and go with paint, even though this old Victorian seemed to cry out for wallpaper. My tastes have changed. I even look at the fabulous red oak woodwork and imagine what the decor would look like painted. But I can't bring myself to commit such sacrilege. LOL But I CAN imagine replacing it with boards I could paint without guilt. :) Not sure what I'm doing to do yet but I want to go with something traditional, just not Victorian. I'm tired of the busyness of Victorian. I even would like to see a gray green on the walls when I've always been a blue and yellow sort of girl.
How about you? Have your tastes changed since you decorated your home? If you could change whatever you wanted in your home, what would it be? And is it a surprise to you that you've changed so much?
