I don't think we have this one.

I don't think it's restricted to interior decorating, either. I've seen one where a character wants to buy a new uniform, rejects several designs, and ultimately settles on a design identical to the uniform he already has. And another, played for drama example, where a character tries to reinvent his entire life—but winds up moving into a new town just like his old town, working a similar job, and marrying a woman just like his old wife.

Also happens with personal appearances, when someone wants to find a new style for themselves... they would go through many different dress/hair styles, until finally settling on something that everyone thinks works for them — which just turns out to be the very same thing they had at the beginning!
