|Bedroom in 2009, let's call this Before|
I want an update that is light, airy, colorful without being obnoxious, and comfortable. The paint will remain the same (it's only been two years this summer) and I have no issue with that. I need colors that mesh well with the tan walls.
I have a love/hate relationship with duvet covers. I appreciate the warmth, comfort and ease with which the cover can be removed and washed (a necessity) but dislike the bulky and clumsy nature of the duvet itself. I much prefer layers of bedding; a mix of cotton blankets, quilts and the like. I have a beautiful white quilt I would love to use but with two black dogs it's just a perfectionist's nightmare. I used it once and ended up spot cleaning it ten times throughout the day before I finally gave up and removed it. I would love to be able to find a way to incorporate it into the plan, maybe as a partially covered layer?
I'm determined to make the room one that I enjoy seeing day after day after day. I abhor uploading pictures to Blogger and thus I have only two inspirational pictures to share. Be assured that my Bedroom Inspiration Folder on my desktop is brimming with colorful and serene rooms to jumpstart this project.
