the d*s apt project: episode 6 [the bedroom]
ok, last post on the apt today and the last word from me as i'm due at a lunch meeting for work in an hour. ac is going to post a few thoughts on the apt and the redecorating process later, so you can enjoy his comments on what an experience it is to live with someone as nutty about decorating as i am. i'm sure it will be funny to say the least. anyway, thanks for trudging through all this- i promise to take better pictures next time. i hope this can be a learning experience for everyone and we can all get something out the process. i've shown everything in its very, very rough, "fixer upper" reality in hopes that, when it's all said and done, we can track how far it's come and how fun (or frustrating) creating a home in real life (and on a budget) can be. see you tomorrow, xo, d*s
i had a vision that our bedroom [click here for full slideshow] would be a deep, grey blue with bright white accents and a gorgeous crystal chandelier. somehow the blue i chose (again, site unseen- dumb, dumb, grace!) turned into primary blue and it looked like we lived in a little boy's room. i immediately repainted with benjamin moore's "silvery moon" paint to cover the mistake and now we're both not quite sure about the color. it's nice, but we don't really have a cohesive vision for the room so everything's in that oh-so-fun limbo stage. all we know is that we plan on keeping our bed (malm in oak) and putting a knotted wool rug under it to counter balance the sharp edges and lines of the bed. i was thinking a grey and red theme, but i'm not quite sure anymore. we don't have linens picked out and we don't have new dressers yet (ours don't match) so it's all a crapshoot right now. any random suggestions? thoughts on colors? fun themes? we're open to most things right now....
