Open House: Do You Play It Too Safe?

This lovely vignette, from stay-at-home-mom Shella Anderson's house, beautifully works with color and pattern. She referenced pattern in an interview with Cookie, when asked about decorating mistakes that people often make. In her opinion, the number one decorating mistake is "[p]laying it too safe! Not having any of their personality in their home because they're maybe a little worried to add color or pattern."

I love to use color and pattern in my own home, but I know that vibrant colors and patterns aren't everyone's first choice when it comes to decorating their homes. There are other ways to play it too safe, though, from not taking a risk on a new furniture design to refusing to think creatively about use of space. Do you play it too safe when decorating your home? Or do you take wild risks?
