[color kreyv]: Turquoise

Am I the only one who does this? If the answer is yes, don't tell me. I like to live in denial. You know you're obsessed if...

(1) You find yourself mentally rearranging other people's furniture every time you visit.

(2)When watching tv or looking at pictures, you pay more attention to the homes in the background than you do to the characters.

(3)You like to go on walks at dusk. You aren't walking for exercise, it's the best time to get a look into people's homes.

(4)Sometimes you can't sleep at night, because you are working on designs in your head.
(5)You change things around in your home at least once a week.

(6)Your idea of studying is looking through a Pottery Barn catalog.

(7)The people at Pier 1 know you by name and let you take the furniture samples home, because they know they'll see you at least once a week.

(8) While sitting in sacrament meeting, your mind often drifts to the thought of how the window treatments in the chapel could use some sprucing up.

(9) You play the "Guess What's Different in the House Game" with your husband...every day.

(10) You don't have a single room in your home that is "done".

My name is Jamie. I am obsessed with interior design.

Oops...I was trying to fix the formatting on this post, and I accidentally deleted not one, but two pictures. I'm out of state without my computer. Sorry for the lack of pictures. That's what I get for being OCD!


  1. Thanks for the reminder to shut my blinds at dusk!!!!

  2. I love this. I'm thinking about painting my kitchen and bathroom blue. I am looking for ideas for a beachy co-ed kids bathroom if you're ever looking for something to blog about! :)

  3. Haha! I was just at the church today thinking of how the frames around the pictures of Jesus would be fun painted a different color -- but then realized the entire building is in desperate need (hey, you have to start somewhere).

    And you know I love turquoise so I can't wait to see the other two pics.

  4. haha! Like your mom, I can't say these are my normal behaviors. But heck, that's why YOU'LL be the one interior decorating my future home!

  5. I wanted our bathroom to be turquoise but apparently it's 'too girly'. And since we have 4 girls I gave in to deep jungle. I guess my husband needs one room he can call his.

  6. This is a hilarious post! Love it!
