The One That was Supposed to Be About Home Design but I Got Side Tracked by Russell Brand and Brussel Sprouts.

Pin It
I'm stumped.

No really.

Now I have these white walls appearing in the house, I am quickly falling in love with the crisp clean and uncluttered look of a monochromatic palette with neutral accents.

But then, there is the other part of me that is literally gagging for colour.

Fat lot of good Pinterest is either. I mean you can go on that site totally hating on brussel sprouts and then next thing you know you are digging up your award winning azaleas to plant row upon row of the stinky little suckers.

Just kidding.

I have no award winning azaleas. (But I do have a pot of dead ones down the side of the house.)

So how does one decide?

Do you have to sit and write a list of pros and cons like you would when you are considering a change in hair colour or deciding between a sea change or tree change? Or, do you just dive on in with whatever floats your goat on decision day, hoping furiously that you don't change your mind by the morning?

I mean things happen over night you know.

I dream about things and then I wake up madly in love with them even though I would have sworn on my mothers chap stick that I would never in a million years like it.

Take for example Russell Brand. The guy annoys the crap out of me (sorry Russell). But then one night I had a dream about him and then I woke up the next day thinking he was hot.

Ewwww.

Thankfully that crush only lasted a very short time... I think he was replaced by Freddie Prinze Junior after watching him in some teenage angst movie. Whatever, squirrels!

The point is how do you choose between two very different styles and then LIVE with your decision?

I'm thinking colour is more me.

Then again...

Bloody hell. See?

What's your preference - monochrome or colour?
How would you come to a decision?
Which would you pick from A - J?
