Looking for Trouble in all the Right Places.

You know how sometimes you move things around, change this and that and suddenly you are looking at what must be the ugliest wall in your home. Yep, that happened to me. Removed the decorations and discovered that I had a horrible, outdated, not matching wall with my "New Style".

Venetian Plaster(old look)

European Country(new look)

Now I know the picture is a little blurry. Trying to take with out flash to get color right. Still working on the decor. I do like the drama of the brown with the rest of the adjoining spaces. (little circle is the wall protector from kids slamming door into walls. I hate antique mirror and table really do not show their glory in photos. We all know how that feels. It is a narrow space so I replaced the heavier table with the iron to open it up. I am into the simple look right now and will show more of me home soon. Hope it inspires you to tackle "THE UGLY WALL"

Hether, this looks lovely. I have so many narrow walls in my home it's not funny! I want to thank you for your kind words regarding our Ms. Gizmo. And I am so sorry for the loss of your 17 year old collie. Thank God time is a great healer, and that the pain we feel when they leave us is far outweighed by the joy they bring to our lives while they are with us. My best wishes to you... Donna

We have a whole house full of ugly walls. A result of living in service accomodation, but maybe I can get creative with the space. Thanks for getting the old brain thinking.

Enjoyed your blog today. Cute taste, we must say! We're in the Phx area as well, don't you long for that nice cottage feel in your neighborhood but instead have the concrete surrounding you? We do! ;) xo~Lolly Jane
