I'm Getting Dizzy!

I spent about an hour in the flooring department yesterday (with a very chatty, somewhat annoying flooring dude) trying to make heads or tails of the choices before me. I must say the selection is endless. Where do you start? Where do you stop? How should the house feel? What image am I trying to portray? Goodness! It's overwhelming. I must say, just like in fashion, there are so many designs that should never be let onto the market so that people can actually choose them. It's disturbing how awful some of the flooring choices are out there. Take the choice away and save people from horrid design!!

Not to mention the endless hours I've spent pouring over websites, magazines, more websites. I was up till 11:45 last night, laying in bed thinking, pondering, mulling...designing...I'm not getting paid enough for my lack of sleep. Don't get me wrong, I'm enjoying this thoroughly! I'm in my element...Interior Erin...hee, hee. I tend to do my best work in the middle of the night, in my dreams or in the hour(s) before I actually fall asleep, when I'm processing all I've thought about during the day.

I've also realized I have very expensive taste...well, I knew that, but it hit home again. If I can only have $3.49/sq ft in the budget, likely I'll pick something that is $7.00 just to make myself miserable. WHY??? At least my sleepless nights have helped me figure out where the money should be spent and where I can save it (kind of...more money would always be helpful!).

Well, it's that time again, time to sleep (or should I say design).

I would be lost in a sea of frenzy.
My middle name is "overwhelmed".
Hats off to you.
I also have the curse of choosing the expensive "stuff" and not intentionally either.
It's all going to come together.
Consider it a fantastic, although trying, experience.

I can't wait till we get to do our house (hopefully) and you can help me with choices!!! :)

I know exactly what you mean, except I've got wedding on the brain, instead of interior decorating.
