but simply an irrevocable condition."
I made some very drastic changes to my decor before Christmas (I've been hinting at them for awhile). I wanted my room to feel lighter and less cluttered. I sold all of my antique furniture *gasp* (I know - it was rather extreme). So far I had collected primarily dark wood pieces. My burl walnut vanity, my little curio cabinet and two commodes, a large bureau with inlay, etc. They all felt very heavy and opulent to me and I think I just wanted relief from the more Victorian style that I had unconsciously been developing. I have always loved soft things and while I still think those pieces were beautiful I couldn't live peacefully with them anymore. Anyway, long story short they went and I re-invented my style. I had my dark walnut French desk professionally painted to match the three paned vanity mirror - it was the first thing I did after I sold everything and it turned out beautifully. I also have a French Provincial dresser and a little painted Florentine table. My workspace also had to be incorporated into my room - you can see those changes in the post My Girly Office. I have taken the first few pictures to share with you. I think I would call my new style 'Feminine French Ivory' - or something like that. :)
