Living Room {Makeover}

Step up on soapbox.. Tap Tap, "Is this thing on?"
I recently read a post on a (popular) blog that talked about how you SHOULD decorate your house, and a few decorating "rules"  BLECK!... I was infuriated after I read it, Cause guess what!? WE ARE ALL INDIVIDUALS!!! And we should express our INDIVIDUAL style as such!!! (unless you are a hoarder, then there is therapy for that lol)
Me?: I don't care if it doesn't match, if it's not symmetrical, or in some cases if it's broken!

Here is another tidbit about me I bet you didn't know... I studied Interior Design in High School and College.. I even won some awards! Crazy thing is.. it cramped my style for a while!
Trying to follow all the "rules" I lost MY creative expression.
So I quit! I quit trying to follow all the rules.. And I just let me be me.
(However.. if you are staging your house to sell it, following basic design guidelines is a good idea, because those 'rules' are pleasing to almost everybody)
Anyway.. no offense intended.. I just hope you are true to what YOU like... and if you like me, and you like my style, and you aren't going to judge me cuz I don't follow the rules.. then stick around my friend, because I am sure you will like what's in store!
 Just thought I would share some pics of my Living Room..

 Quite a difference in Looks... and smells!
 I will be sharing more pictures of the rest of this room soon, but I am in the process of re-decorating it :)
My favorite lil corner..

I agree about being yourself in your own house, but I also think if you are trying to sell your home or you are trying to stage it, the rules are good guidelines. They are (generally) pleasing to most people. You may love it, but if someone walks in and says "OH MY GOD! WHAT WERE YOU THINKING!?!?" you probably won't feel so good about it.

That being said, I am not a die hard rule follower either. I am the only one looking at my house 99% of the time, so I am the one that matters! *THAT* makes good design.

Love the remodel! It doesn't look like the same room!

i luv it all!! and i absolutely agree with you on showing your individual style. my momma always tells me i have no distinct style, my style is a mish mosh of everything. if i like it i put it in and it works for me because i luv it.
