The Nester wrote a love-rly post about taking risks. I used to be full of them, I was the kind of girl that walked on the wild side. Then I grew up (ha) and became a little.. ah.. vanilla.
Which I don't think is bad. I like vanilla. I like clean, airy, white (bleachable) soft colors. Pretty standard Rachelle as of late.
BUT I'm trying to branch out. I started by ordering the bright curtains for the playroom. A little color wont hurt me, right?
I know it seems silly to some of you but I'm the type of person that thinks if I add a little color, then my house will look like rainbow bright threw up all over it.
Not only are the curtains colorful, they're also pretty modern. I feel confident in saying it's the only modern piece in our house. Is it totally weird? The vanilla girl picking blue moon.. Yeah kind of, but I like it. Will I turn to graphic prints more? Maybe! I think it mixes well with the vintage feel that I'm putting in the room. Is my house going to go from traditional cottage chic to graphic, modern and contemporary? Probably not. But a touch here and there doesn't hurt.
