Give it some life. It’s important that you have fun & experiment. Allow yourself the freedom. A dramatic splash of red or vibrant purple can make a real statement!.
You did it! It’s one of your major achievements! … & you love it & feel incredibly comfortable in it. Is this where you are right now? Or is this where you want to get to?.
Sometimes you need a little motivation.
Mix & match some harmony & some contrast – some upright, some horizontal. Keep some shelf spaces exclusively as center pieces for displaying special loved & meaningful items. Signature items that speak about you & your history. Perhaps a pen, a journal, a picture, or pictures, or your favorite collectibles. The things you love & enjoy to have around you.
You can use these focal points around which to build your home decorating ideas & themes. If your room doesn't have a natural focal point, you can easily create one with a dynamic piece of art or a colorful area rug. More on this later.
