I didn’t get the quilted patchwork throw finished for my client this weekend. I did get the face of it finished, with all 56 rectangles sewed together. So far, this is my favorite throw I’ve made. The colors are gorgeous! I’ll be finishing it up today, and I’ll show you how it turned out tomorrow. I’m also working on another DIY project that I’ll share with you tomorrow (hopefully).
But in the meantime, I’ve been giving some thought to my home office. I really, REALLY need to get that room finished so that I can get organized. It is, after all, where I run my business, so I need to be as organized and efficient as possible. But I still want it to be pretty, of course!
I’ve been thinking about doing a decorative wall treatment, and I’ve been pondering doing some sort of tree mural. It would be subtle…my wall color is a very light robin’s egg blue, and the mural would be white. Here are some examples I found. I love the subtle nature of the first one, but I really like the design of the second one. What do you think?

But just when I thought I had my decision made, I was reminded this weekend just how much I love horizontal stripes. Again, they would be subtle…robin’s egg blue and white, and maybe an accent thrown in here and there.
One of my all-time favorite rooms!

So there they are…my two choices: trees or horizontal stripes. What do you think?
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
