Jake had his first normal work week last week which means we had our first three-day-weekend in our new place! To gain a little perspective, we are project people. We like where we live to feel like home and so as you can imagine, our to-do list is very long. Most of the projects on the list have been on hold due to long weeks and short weekends but this weekend we made a game plan. Our bedroom looks a little like this right now, embarrassing to say the least.Does anyone else notice the stock pile of earplugs on my husbands side of the bed? He was prepared for sleep training!
So we put our heads together and came up with a plan. To say I’m excited about it is an understatement.
We’ll start off with a slight variation of this color
I love this wall art for above the bed
A pair of lamps this color
I’m keeping my eye out for an old coffee table to make this tufted benchAnd there will definitely be some homemade mercury glass for a little shine – by the way, I love the galvanized “mirror” behind the candles to reflect light.
I’m trying to keep the bones of the room as neutral as possible because I’ve noticed especially with bedroom decor I change my mind a lot. When that inevitable need for change comes I’ll be able to switch out a few accent pieces to give the room an inexpensive new look. Accent colors are still in the works but I have my eye on mustards right now and my great-grandmothers chandelier will have a prominent place in the room.
I can’t wait!
