I am going to say front up that I (a) looked for my new place with the explicit eye of not wanting to renovate it and (b) am terrible at decorating.
That being said, I do have decorating plans! Sort of. The big things I have done so far have been to get a few new rugs and some new art to hang on my walls. I am so terrible at this, I have only used the existing hooks in the walls to attach my stuff. Oh yeah. I am a master artiste.
I have previously posted a picture of my new rug. My second one is still unrolled, waiting for me to get off my ass and rearrange my furniture to handle it. (I was waiting for the Yuletide deadline for that one.)
One thing I'm interested in is buying art from local artists who are doing cool stuff. The area here has more than enough of them, but it's definitely kind of challenging for me to show up and look at things because I am terrible at decorating, so I don't have a good sense of where things will go. Still, it has been good to go to craft fairs and open studios, at least to get a sense of what people are doing. Hopefully I'll get better at it.
