Decorating Agreement

We moved into a new home almost 12 years ago (WOW) after living in a single wide trailer for over 15 years.  Nearly every wall in the trailer was covered with testaments to the hunting prowess of my beloved husband Marty.  I grew up with hunters, so this decorating theme seemed normal but I did pine for at least a corner to call my own.
I had big plans for the new house!  We agreed that Marty could do whatever he wanted on the walls in the basement and I could do whatever I wanted on the walls upstairs.  This agreement has worked very well.  One small problem, Marty's walls are covered with many interesting things

 and my walls are basically bare!!  Turns out a corner is about all I can handle :)
I had the walls painted in  Fall 2011.  Prior to that, there were some pictures on the walls and I was adding things I liked as I found them.  I had big plans again, even posted a few pictures.

Here I am a year later, again trying to decorate.  It's a difficult process for me.  I don't feel gifted or comfortable in the decorating arena.  My sisters have offered suggestions and free labor but it's hard to organize an event when you don't know the expected outcome.  However, something has happened, I have a theme!!  So, I have some ideas brewing and some plans for the winter months.  I am hoping, well, praying actually, that spring with bring a better look to the upstairs!
