Re-decorating at 2:00 in the morning

It is 2:12 a.m and yet again I cannot sleep. This isn't an unusual occurrence. I should have known that since I fell asleep before 10:00 last night that tonight I would not be able to sleep at all.

So tonight I thought I would share about my constant need to change things in my home. For example, I LOVE how I decorated my new kitchen. I am so happy in that room it is insane BUT here I am tonight changing my mind about certain parts of it. I LOVE color. I always have. When I started planning my new kitchen I knew I wanted it to feel warm and I knew I wanted lots of red and blue and green. I do not particulary like red, white and blue in decor together but it ended up that way and I still love it. But tonight I decided I need to add more color. I need color. So I pulled out my beloved tree mug from Target and put it on top of the fridge for an extra pop of color. I love it so I decided now that instead of having all of my blue cups hanging under the cabinets I am going to find some random bright colored mugs to hang there instead. It will add just the right amount of color along with some bright magnets and I have a whole new kitchen I will love.

This is an inconvience though. I should be at least laying in bed trying to sleep but instead I have been standing in my kitchen trying to decide what to change. I still want to keep it uncluttered which is why changing out the mugs is the perfect solution. I torture myself constantly. I think I re-decorated our old kitchen about 7 times in the 3 years we lived there. I wonder how many times this kitchen will see changes.

The surprising thing about me is that I am pretty good at mixing patterns and colors that you would never think to put together and still pulling it off. I get a vision and I make it work. Right now I am not loving my big letters in the dining room. I still want to use them somewhere but I have another vision in my head for that wall. It just might take me a while to pull it together. is now 2:30 a.m and I have got to try to sleep. Maybe my middle-of-the-night-rambling got all my thoughts worked out enough for me to dream. Then again...maybe not.

I think a photo wall would ROCK where the letters are. (all black frames, perhaps?)

Then, can you alter the letters in your kitchen colors and put them in there?

Will they stand on top of the fridge, maybe?
I can't remember what wall space you might or might not have in the kitchen and apparently I'm too lazy to go back and look. :)

I need a big cute cup to use as a pen holder for the conference room table here at work. It's right in my line of vision and bugs the crap out of me to see them just laying there- all boring like.

2:15 am??Your kids wake up at the crack of dawn! lol..

I love the letter wall in the dining room,that was a cute idea.

You should get a couple of those collage frames and put them on that wall.

Good luck!

You sound like me! I always say "I need color in my life" when i'm buying a car or anything that is going to stay with me awhile!! Sorry you couldn't sleep! That is frustrating!
