I'm notorious for painting anything white a dark or bright color...up until this point in the two houses we've owned I've painted rooms purple, chocolate brown, red, and green. If there was white it was my mission to get rid of it!
But I noticed that as I troll decorating blogs I'm almost always drawn to the pictures of white rooms with white furniture and little pops of color. It feels refreshing and clean and peaceful. So, I decided this weekend that it was time for a change in my bedroom.
I wish that I had before pictures - but here is the run-down.
Walls - Green
Curtains - Navy & with a cuff of off-white floral
Accessories - a mix-mash of whatever I found that fancied me at the time.
My fabulous husband agreed to help paint (this was a serious sign of love because Josh loathes painting).
After painting I completely flip-flopped the furniture...I decided I wanted my bed underneath the windows - again wanting more sunshine in my life!
Then I decided to work on a cute bench I found at a garage sale - I painted the legs a black lacquer...
...and I finally put up some curtains that I bought about 6 months ago!
Here is where we are now...
...it makes me happy...
I still need a few more touches (it's still a little too bare for me)...especially over on this wall
Do you have any ideas for me? Anything you would add? I'm thinking about some art work that I saw on Etsy - basically I've decided I only want things that I really love...but would love any ideas you have!
Til next time ~ I hope you find something that makes your life feel a bit more refreshing!
