Here we are a few months ago ... my snowflake banner was still up, so it must've been wintry out. Our bedspread is looking a little faded (weird lighter spots - from the sun?) and when I painted the walls brown, all of a sudden it was like ...
EVERYTHING. DROWNING. IN. BROWN.
Last week I scored a cream tailored bedskirt at a discount store, and reupholstered the headboard in dropcloth fabric.
The headboard definitely pops against the darker wall and I like that I can play a little bit more with the pillow colors - now I'm not limited to gold, tan, brown and blue.
I would love to eventually get a new bedspread and totally change up the colors, but this is what I chose (curtains + bedspread were wedding gifts) and I am determined to make the best of it for now.
Next on my list is making some hanging pendant lights to free up bedside stand space...
Maybe something industrial like these?
Or upcycling something vintage and turn it into a pendant light? I'll let you know when I come up with it. It may be a couple of years, but it will be done.
