Which, as you can see, is a tragedy and often gives me nightmares. But the only way I am going to be able to get the stenciling and the awful fan and the clashy decor we have packed all into this room (simply because we had no place else to put it) out of my subconscious is to move forward and get to work. Chris and I have officially decided that we want this room to be a retreat. Very calm. Very peaceful. That is the main reason we sold our big flatscreen for our bedroom before we moved. We don’t even want a TV in our room! Which means we can definitely get rid of that cable that has been hanging from the ceiling in the corner since before we bought the house:
Something this blog is not–instant before and afters. I like to take you a long for the complete ride. Although the “after” pictures are definitely the most exciting, there’s too much work that happens along the way and too many changes and decisions, I think it would be a complete injustice to not share with you those happenings as well. Besides, there’s no way I could keep my mouth shut while I am working on a room, I just get too excited.
Our Master bedroom is in the decisions stage. The problem is I am having trouble envisioning this room as done, or even different from its current state:
That also means these letters are going to find a new
home spot in our house. They are just too industrial for the serene bedroom vibe we are going for. And that black leather headboard is gonna get a facelift. And don’t forget new window treatments. And new lamps. And for sure new pillows and bedding. And I’d love to see a starburst mirror make and appearance and some rich hardwood floors.
And fresh paint. Oooooo, fresh paint will do wonders for this room. And that’s where I’m stumped. Which is unfortunate, because that’s where I like to start. In short–I’ve got too many directions I’d like to go as far as color. I have gone from bold color, to deep color, to a creamy white, to a wallpapered accent wall behind the bed….maybe I am spending too much time on Pinterest. Ha! Do you ever have that problem? You have TOO much inspiration? And TOO many good ideas for one room, you have trouble deciding which direction to go? There is so much I want to do to this room and I just gotta decide 1. What would work best for the space. 2. What would fit in with the rest of our home. Weigh in. And while you’re at it, check out the bedrooms I have been pinning to inspire our bedroom—if you dare. But don’t say I didn’t warn you. Inspiration overload commence (pictures contain link affiliates) :
…told you I was over inspired.
