I confess, I have an ulterior motive in writing this post, other than just sharing pretty home inspiration with you. I hope that putting this together and repeatedly seeing these images will motivate me to get off my bum and get painting.
Our bedroom is long overdue for painting. When we first moved in, more than six years ago, we painted it a light yellow. It was fun at first, but I've tired of the lemonade shade. I'm ready to have a bedroom that feels more like a calm refuge from the sometimes chaos of family life. I'm so ready in fact, that I purchased paint. However, that paint is still sitting in the garage in the same place I put it almost two months ago. Hopefully, I can get my act together and brighten things up before the shorter days and lower light of the winter set in.
Right now, I'm planning on a fresh coat of white, paired with a bit of black, grey and natural wood tones. I'd like to mix in some planters, a vintage rug, wool blankets and a large floor mirror to pull the whole room together. When I eventually finish the bedroom space up, I'll share it here. Is anyone else out there procrastinating a project right now?
