Slowly but surely I have been refreshing and updating our bedroom. In the last year we've added a new mattress, new lamps and my really-cool-they-make-me-feel-awesome tiles. Right before I picked out the tiles, I had a vision of a bedroom in blue and decided to start bringing in more of that cool and calming shade.
The latest additions to the bedroom are a new down comforter and as of 7:10 this morning, new curtains! The last couple of mornings I've been starting my day early to get some sewing in before people were awake and needing things. And now I have two curtains to show for it. They are lined in blackout fabric, so they will keep out light and noise more effectively than our previous curtains. Plus, they are BLUE. ahhhh....
In my recent fabric shopping escapes I've been picking up these blues and browns for the bedroom. Now that the curtains are done I'm going to get crackin' on some pillow shams and a quilt.
Here was my bedroom before. It represents my Burgundy Period that I (and the rest of America) embraced in the late 90's.
And now for my Cool Blue Redo.
And while we are on the subject of bedrooms...I have my heart set on a simple, clean platform bed that one day will join the mix. It's pricey though and not something we can swing right now. But, I feel like the bed would look better with some kind of headboard. I've been toying with the idea of making a faux headboard like I've seen on DIY design shows. I was thinking of covering a piece of plywood with batting and fabric and attaching it to the wall. Something low and subtle. Is that crazy? What is it about headboards that make beds look so...official?
oh. And here is Isaac taking in the redo. After a few jumps on the bed he gave it his seal of approval. I knew he would.
