Am I just fickle or have you all experienced complete changes in style over the years? Those “what the hell was I thinking” decisions? In our first apartment, I had long purple velvet drapes custom made for these narrow but tall living room windows. I’m not sure how I came to that decision but at the time, I absolutely had to have them. You know how that is. Then I decided I needed a plum/burgundy couch. I know! What was I on? I then proceeded to buy a set of red vintage leather dining chairs and paired them with a big wooden farmhouse table. Well, believe it or not, it all actually worked out. I was on a sort of global boho kick in those days and we had bought a beautiful Tibetan rug on a trip to Nepal. It was blue with some plums and just a speck of red in it and it actually brought everything together. But that color scheme never looked as good as these purple rooms.
I still have all the pieces, including the purple drapes although they’ve just been stored for the last several years. But looking at these pictures, I think maybe some of them can actually find new life. How about you? Do you hang onto furniture or accessories that you may have outgrown? Just in case you have a change of heart?
