I think I lost "my" style in the sea-of-shabby-chic. I have always loved the muted colors but but not the distressed look.
Most of the blogs I read, are heavy on the shabby-chic/rustic ocean-side cottage look. And that's okay!!
More often than not, I love the blog-land rooms I see! And slowly but surely, my style started to evolve into the distress, beachy look. But that's not me!
Clean, classic, crisp and muted is me. Like this...

Okay, okay... this is almost me. I'm not a fan of the cubes on the table or the vines on the stairs but overall, it's clean, classic, a touch modern and subtle.
Of course this all come to head when we are in no position to redecorate, with the trip coming up and all.
So for the next 2 months, I will be planning the elements and stalking the sales so, the moment we return, I can get to work!
Another inspiration came from an old mood for from http://www.younghouselove.com/ ...
That is our dining room set! We have similar blinds and green glassware! And I have been adding pops of spring green for our spring/summer look. I want to add white curtains over our French doors to cover the hideous vertical blinds. So though we have this look in the making, having a little guide is helping me stay focused.
More ideas to come but in the meantime, have you had a decor change-of-heart?
