I’m in the Mood to Redecorate…

Just wait. When my husband (who is subscribed to my blog, of course!) gets the notification that I published a post called “I’m in the Mood to Redecorate”, I’m gonna hear about it!

But honestly, I am sooo in the mood!

Right now, our living room is shades of brown and burgundy. I chose that because I felt like it was warm and comfy and hospitable – and it’s all those things. See?


I mean, I’m definitely no designer, but I think it’s cozy! But it’s been like that for a few years now, and I’m wanting to do something different! I think maybe white, and shades of yellow and gray!

Also, our comforter on the bed in the Master Bedroom needs to be replaced, so I’m thinking a combination of teal and corral! (The room is already teal and browns, but I want to brighten it up a little bit! It feels dark sometimes, and I don’t like that.)

And third, our front bedroom will eventually, down the road, no, I am not pregnant, turn into a nursery. And I’ve always loved the white, navy blue and kelly green combo…kind of like what I have going here on the blog! So I might go that route, one never knows!

As I’m pondering all of these things, I got an email from Holly at Chairish.

Okay, first of all: are you familiar with Chairish?

With my “redecoration” ideas in mind, I did a little browsing on the Chairish site, myself! Check out what I came up with:

The quintessential gray sofa!


And I found this while I was looking at the sofas…PERFECT for a photo shoot in a field at sunset!


I got goosebumps!

I started looking at bedroom items and found this:


Just what I need to hold the TV in the bedroom, with drawers to boot! I LOVE the color!

I even found some decor items in my white/navy blue/kelly green combo that I like!




You can shop or sell by category or color, location or price, style or brand…and more!

And while I like the color schemes that I came up with, Chairish came up with some amazing ones! Check this out:

  1. I have been relocating often for the past years, and every time, I choose a different decoration for my home. Each apartment or house gives me a different feeling about the colors and furniture that I think would fit perfectly.
    And even when settled down, I keep on moving furniture from one place to the other to optimize it, it is so much fun (and tiring…)

  2. I love the Persimmon and Cornflower or maybe a brown and Cornflower, I just love baby boy and that is close to it. We have a small Apt. so I really can’t redecorate that much, but if I could I definitely would!

  3. Honestly, I Have no desire to redecorate until my kids are grown up and no longer live here. They destroy everything I Have, so I can’t have anything nice until they are not around LOL.

  4. I’m always in the mood to decorate! 🙂 And I’ve never heard of Chairish! I’m definitely rushing over to check it out. Thanks!

    Oh, and I think the color schemes you’ve picked out are awesome! Looking forward to watching the transformation.

  5. I’ve never heard of Chairish.com, but I’m a fan now! Thank you!

    I’ve got earth tones throughout my house with pops of bright color here and there, but I do like the amethyst and emerald combination. I try to use principles of feng shui when redecorating because I believe it’s all about the energy flow in a room and home.

  6. What fun, Kristen! Your living room is cozy and comfy, but I know the feeling burning inside when you want a change! There was a time when my urge to redecorate was totally out of control that I would start moving beds and cupboards from one room to another. Once I got stuck with our double bed in the doorway – there was no way I could move it and hubby was doing a night shift … had to sleep on the couch that night! Enjoy! HUGS <3

  7. Of course, that amethyst is the best of all! lol
    I’m in a mood to DEcorate. Since we moved in here Feb 1st, we’ve done nothing. Except the 1 curtain I just hung a few weeks ago, now. Low energy causes anything to be a slooooow process!! But I do want to fix it up nice.

  8. LOL about your hubby!!! I guess he wants to save money! Anyway, my colors are the same – burgundy, brown, tan, I also have some orange. Well I think I like the cozy feeling for real. But if you want to change – I like the peach or caramel combo!

  9. I am redecorating room by room using new and what I already have. I am trying to step outside my comfort zone by using new colors or styles that I am drawn to. So far I am happy.

  10. I’ve never heard of Chairish, but after browsing the site I’m obsessed! We just moved so I’m always in the mood to decorate, so this is just what I needed! PS. I love that amethyst and emerald! LOVE IT!

  11. I am always in the mood to redecorate! Unfortunately, my budget is NOT in the mood, lol. I really love the Persimmon and Cornflower colors, which is funny because I’m not usually an orange person. However, that orange is particularly gorgeous with that shade of blue!

  12. The one you call a photo prop, yeah I would have those all over my house even if they aren’t the most comfortable things! I love that look! My favorite is the emerald & green too! Tell your hubby atleast you are trying to be frugal about it! LOL! I am off to check out this site now. 🙂

  13. That is really neat to be able to see how things will look without even leaving your home to ‘shop’! I think your room already looks nice and I am sure you will make it look nice when you redo it. God bless! 🙂
