Keeping my EYE on.....

There are days, I wish I could re-design MY HOME. Move around furniture, or just sell what I have & start new! I think I feel like this just about every 3months. Is that so bad? It may have to do with the fact that I frequent so many blogs and that gets my creative juices flowing.  My husband wonders why I like to change things up so much....I tell him. "Hey, at least it's just furniture & not you." Ha! He laughs.  

But IT'S TRUE....If I had the time, I would shop every 3 - 4 months for my home!  I love the feel of a NEW sofa, a new coffee table, new book, a lamp & so forth. How about you? Maybe in a dream world we would all be able to afford new furniture every time we wanted it & somehow magically get rid of the old stuff (if you couldn't sell it). Here are items I'm keeping my eye on, although I have already purchased 2 things from this list. Enjoy your weekend!

  10. I want new furniture etc. all the time!!! I wish I could just bounce through themes for my room but I could never part with my huge Audrey Hepburn picture!LOL I'm thinking of either vintage or contemporary Paris for my room!

  11. And I really wanted to let you know how much you inspire me! A LOT of my room ideas are from you and your blog! And all the stuff you pick out is AMAZING! Even the stuff you have posted on your blog ispires me for my cards, paintings, scrapbooks, etc.! So thanks for all the lovely inspiration!

  12. I feel like changing things up too & not just my furniture same thing with my blog (I'm always trying to figure out ways to change the template but afraid to loose all my info).
    I love your place so I wouldn't change too much:) I do love the headboard & I've been wanting that Tom Ford book too.

  13. the headboard, the sheepskin & the throw are on my list too....i always want to redecorate. actually our house got messy so often that i started redecorating & rearranging everyday just to make it more fun.

  14. I feel like buying home stuff all the time but we need to CHANGE HOMES first! I'm so tired of living in our wee bitty condo which was hubs' bachelor pad before my time. An upholstered/tufted headboard and interesting bedside tables are my top furniture picks s soon as we buy a real house!

    And that WING chair you picked is awesome! You can always re-upholster it if you're sick of the fabric! And you're so right at least it's just furniture and not the men in our lives! :)

  16. I'm so on the same page as you, I blogged about this very thing the other day, I am so needing a change too! I always feel the urge to do a new look for the summer months & winter months.

    Lucky for me, the boy has an Upholstery biz & big THANKS to you for all the lovely inspiration!

  17. I love to change things up as well. I just built a house about a year ago and I've painted my bedroom about 7 times. My Living room? 4 times. Everyone jokes that I'm losing square feet in my house as the walls get smaller. It's fiiiine! No worries! I think things are going to stay the way they are for a bit. Only the laundry room walls remain . . . stripes? Oh, and I'm planning a trip to my favorite flea market soon for patio furniture. Can't wait to get the paint out and get to work! Good times, good times.

  21. WOW, me too! I feel like I need to be content with what I have, but blogging seems to make me want to change everything about every 3-4 months too! I see others inspiring ideas and it makes me want to go home and re-decorate!!! I'm glad I'm not the only one... Ash

  23. I love to change everything around the house all the time. When I buy something new, I store the old in the basement. Sooner or later I bring the old one back to life again. My husband says that I could open a store with the items I store away! My decor and the mood of my house manly change with the seasons.
    My dream? To have three houses to decorate them all!

  24. There is nothing like the feeling of bringing home a new piece of furniture or accessory, it is very exciting. So, I would definitely let you redecorate every four months if I were your hubby! ha

  31. The tufted headboard is gorgeous! I hope that is one of the items you already purchased :) I feel the same way, it is easy to want a change! Sometimes when I am trying to fall asleep at night, I mentally go through different rooms in my home and think about everything I would change and all the furniture I would buy (if the sky was the limit)!!

  42. For those of us with a constant desire to change things up, we should start a furniture swap! I get the rearrange bug all the time. And now I've moved on to my parents house. My mother is definitely ready to get me out of here! :)
