I have never participated in a Show Us Your Life from Kelly's Korner... but I'm going to today! :) I could spend hours (and have) going through all of the bloggers that link up on Kelly's blog! Fun!!!
So, I have a list a mile long of things I want to do when I'm done with school in 8 short weeks (8 weeks!) One of them, is re-doing our spare room. Right now, it houses my old queen size bed from Pier One that is a creamy white and has slats that look like shutters. I still really like the bed, it just needs a room to suit it!!! It's a bit shabby chic, which is just fine with me.
I want to go with a "cool and calm" feel in that room. The rest of our house is pretty warm with browns, taupes, cranberry red, burnt orange, blacks and beiges. I figure we could use a change of pace... :)
So far, I love the look of two duvets from Pottery Barn... Deirdre and Sydney.
I love Deirdre for the warm colors in the bedding... but I was trying to get away from that. However, it may be a great way to tie in warm colors with a calm feeling... What to do you think? I could do the walls in a nice green or blue... or even a similar color as what is shown.
Then, Sydney just grabs my eye as being cool and calm, don't ya think? In this room I think I would definitely go with a green or blue wall. Hmmm...
I have some time to make a decision, but which do you like better?
Well, I never have any rooms cleaned and photographed in time to participate in Show Us Your Life... HA! But I do love looking at all of the ideas over there! Last week was nurseries/children's rooms! FUN!!!
If you're one of my regular readers, hop on over there and check out the talented ladies that post their rooms and if you're here from SUYL... thanks for stopping by!
