The time has come. I'm getting super bored with our master bedroom. Above is the space before we even moved in. The previous owner can totally take credit for the matching bedspread-curtains combo. We get kudos for our patchwork quilt and really awful tied curtains.
(What were we thinking???)
I remember being so proud of this look when we moved in. And now it makes me cringe. Has this ever happened to you?
A few months passed. And we wanted a new look. A couple coats of grey no-VOC paint (that was like five shades lighter than we thought it'd be), and new spread, and a few yellow throw pillows later, here's where we found ourselves sleeping at night:
Then we discovered Young House Love (or at that time, This Young House). I loved the way they draped curtains in their bedroom to create a light, airy -- yet dramatic effect. So, like many others, we copied them.
But we still haven't mastered it. (Get it? Get it???) And you'll all just have to wait and see what we decide to do. Even I don't know at this point. It's all going down this weekend, though. Bright wall color? Bold bedspread pattern? New hanging wall treatment? Really, we're not sure. But it's boring. And blah. And oh-so plain-Jane.
We need to spice it up. NOW!
What about room design evolution in your house? Do you have any photos that make you want to hurl? It's almost as bad as looking at an old photo of yourself, really. Like back when I was blonde and Stephen got $10 haircuts. We're only sharing because we know you love us:
