And then there's my bedroom....the most depressing room in my house and not just because there's no boy in it. I have literally done NADA with this room. No pictures, no pretty bedspread, no curtains, no paint, no frills, no nothing. Well, lovelies, that ends today. I have paid off my credit cards and have an expanded decorating budget burning a hole in my pocket. I am on a mission to make my room the most bee-yoo-ti-ful room in the house (and super girly to boot....I'm decorating for ME). Here are the things I have decided on thus far:So this is the paint color I've decided on. Yes, it's pink. Why? Because I can. I love the color pink and this is my room and likely the last time in my life I will get to paint a bedroom pink (I'm convinced I'm going to be mother to all boys). It's Benjamin Moore 'Love and Happiness'. House Beautiful describes it as ballet slippers pink with a touch of beige to make it modern. Good enough for me.
The bed. I currently do not have a headboard. I just have a metal bed frame (that's using the term loosely) on wheels. It sucks. And it's the opposite of attractive. But this beauty just calls out to me. I heart all things Chippendale and chinoiserie. And it's Pottery Barn.
Window treatments. Only I'm getting these in a chocolate, instead of the gold pictured here. I just love that it's buffalo check, which is such a casual woodsy print, but with tassels and in silk, which is so dressy. Plus they're dramatic and fun.
These four pictures are my inspiration. I know that none of them are bedrooms and one is a nursery, but I just love this palate(sp?) of colors. They're all soothing yet upbeat and fun at the same time. Jury is still out on what I'm going to do for bed linens. I already have PB Shams in the same style as the bottom picture with my monogram on them, so they will obviously be used. Any suggestions for the rest?
