Distractions could definitely be a posibility, Michael. Also perhaps all the images we see of others' homes--others who may have vastly more money / time / creativity / resources / help than we might. Houzz and other websites and tv shows like it are very useful, they also incite discontent with all the things we do have. Homes are like family members, sometimes you just have to love them and work with what you have :-D

Had a good chuckle from the part about fewer people over 65 using wallpaper or bold colors. Why? Because........Been there. Done that. Over it! Finally, we know what works for us and make fewer mistakes. I am currently remodeling a kitchen, choosing to keep the white walls and "modern" style I've loved since the 60s. No beige......ever. Black or white seating with pops of color in accessories and art. Keeping the big teak table I bought in Copenhagen in 1967. My sons learned to read at that table, as well as where to place the knives and forks. Now my grandson does his homework there.
Keep the good pieces forever. Their value increases with the memories.
