Grey, White and Frilly All Over!

Here is something I have been working on for a couple of months. I really like it. When I was finished I went inside to get my husband to show him, and see what he thought (I always do this, and he graciously humors me.) He came out into the garage and said he really liked it, then the next line concerned me. "It's really girly." I looked at it, a big flower and lots of ruffles. Yep, girly! Then I thought, is that good or bad? I know it kinda backs me into a girly corner, so to speak. Not everyone is going to want a ruffle covered chair in their living rooms. Maybe I need to tone it down for the next one. I keep saying this, and for some reason, as I'm creating things, ruffles, flowers and the like just seem to sprout on their own. I don't know how it happens. Anyhoo, my next item I'm going to make something plaid, or bearskin covered. Ehh, probably not...but, no more ruffles. Of, course that hot pink velvet that I picked up is just itching to be used. That's not girly right? RIGHT!!!

Hi Nichole,
I'm glad I found your site, I love looking at all the inspirational pictures of the interior design you have posted.
As for the chair, so what if it is girly, it is fabulous, and unique! And it's not really that girly, either, just has a softer side to it, a bit of a modern edge and I love it!
Keep doing what you are doing, don't doubt yourself so much. You are only 30 - if you make mistakes it's not really that big of a deal at this point, is it? I admire you for sticking your neck out and trying new things, wish I would have had the courage to do that when I was younger - I'm a very, extremely, exceptionally young 51:) !! But life is a learning experience all the way, so keep on with what you've started! And Good For You!!
I noticed a Haven and Home on your blog roll, my site is Heart and Home, I'd love it if you stopped by for a visit sometime. Also, having a giveaway next week, FYI!
Take care,
Heidi - Heart and Home

I love the grey and white combo. I picture a bright yellow fringey throw with it :)
