How do I not get stuck in the rut of buying everything the same color combinations or super matchy-matchy? For example in our old house I went with a blue/brown color combo. But it seemed like everything that caught my eye for the house was blue/brown from the rug, to the lamp, to the wall art. In our new house I am trying to NOT do that. I have some black furniture pieces in the family room and am trying to convince myself that not all of the furniture (coffee table, end table etc.) have to be black. Or since the walls are sage green, sofas are tan, and some of the furniture is black not every decorative item should be sage and black. This is why I am not an interior designer!!
P.S. attached is a photo of our family room so you can see what i am working with. I recently purchased the other pieces in supplemental photos. Am I going in the right direction?
