When Chris and I bought our cute little house, we started decorating it room by room. We’ve pretty much finished the entire house. Except for our bedroom. Or as I like to call it: No Man’s Land.
(Please disregard the small sleeping man in my bed. He insisted on being photographed. Publicity hog.)
We recently got a new bed and it reminded me that our bedroom is pretty drab. Really drab. Dreadfully drab. The furniture is alright, but the room needs paint like I need a nap.
So, whats the problem? Its basically a blank canvas. Why haven’t I started on this room yet?
Well, because of this:
The room has this funky shaped area sitting off of it. There’s the main room with the bed and then this little area that’s sort of off-set a little.
Complicating things even further is that we have several things that need to stay in this room and none of these things really fit with everything else.
Lucy’s crate is a must-stay. She has slept in it for her entire life and it has always been in my bedroom.
We also have the Bean’s rocking chair in my bedroom. It takes up a lot of room, but it is also a non-negotiable. Beanie loves rocking in his chair and I love that it is in my bedroom. When I feed Beanie in the middle of the night, Chris wakes up just enough to sort of talk to me while I sit with Beanie. I love that.
And the last thing that must stay in our room is this awkward, huge jewelry box. Chris got it for me in high school. (Weird fact: I think Chris got this from a yard sale at one of his other girlfriend’s houses in high school. So, Gigi Vassar, if you are reading this, thank you for the jewelry box and I’m sorry I was so mean to you in high school. Oh, and I hear you are engaged now. Congratulations!) (Wow. I actually feel better.)
So, those are my obstacles in this room. Oh, and the fact that Chris only wants a white comforter. Which doesn’t dictate anything for paint. Which means I have to figure it all our myself. Which means the room will probably remain untouched for another year.
Endless possibilities always make me nervous.
I’m sort of in love with this light blue toile duvet cover from Pottery Barn:
But then I also have a crush on this light blue paisley duvet cover from Pottery Barn:
Oh, I don’t know. Maybe I’ll just move.
