The bedroom is at that point in the process where I’m second guessing everything. I ordered the linen bedding and the Target sheets from the mood board I made. The H & M bedding is far better quality than I was expecting, in case you’ve been thinking of trying their new line. It’s all as planned, less pattern more texture to try to create interest. There’s more texture in the room then shows up in the picture – linen duvet, percale sheets and fleece throw. It’s also all maybe a little blah?
I hadn’t decided what I was doing with the rug and then I found a large sheepskin, at Costco of all places. The floor needs a new coat of paint, especially now that I’ve revealed the much cleaner section that was under the chevron rug.
It’s still a mess. I need new lighting and to play with accessories. I’m not sure what to do about art. And I need to paint the barn door. That yellow was never quite right, now it really stands out. I’m thinking hale navy or dark gray, as I have both those colors on hand and they should work with the space.
Mostly though, it’s just a bit, well, boring. It feels disjointed and unfinished (because it is, right?). I’m hoping that continuing in this direction, changing out the accessories and finding the right lights, as well as painting the barn door and getting out all the extra stuff I’ve hidden off camera, will make the space feel as calm and finished as it did when Nicole worked her magic. This room has always been tricky for me, it’s why I applied for Nicole’s giveaway the first time. No doors, weird ceilings – designing around at it’s finest, right?
What do you think, do you see it coming together?
