Tour of Homes: Master Bedroom
I guess I've been living under a rock in blogworld because I just discovered Kelly's Korner. She's hosting a carnival of home tours, and this week is Master Bedrooms. Well, this is one of 3 incomplete rooms in our house (meaning, I'm not yet satisfied), but I'm gonna participate because you might could give me some advice to solve my problemo.
I know there's too much brown in here. Brown walls, brown curtains, brown picture frames, brown blanket. We used to have a yellowish/tan color for the walls, so the brown was okay then. I'm dying to find some curtains with a large bold print like this:
...but without the price tag.
Either that or new bedding. I'm even considering jumping on the blue/brown train, but throwing green and white in there. I love large modern floral prints or large paisley prints. Know where I can find it? By all means, COMMENT.
Oh, and FYI: I actually had to make my bed for this post. I went to all that trouble for you.
Terrible picture of the nook from the den to the MB. Purpose of said nook: to make it nearly impossible to move anything larger than a human inbetween the space without scarring the walls. Namely, furniture, mattresses, and boxsprings. You know, everything needed in a MBR. Note to self: no nook in next house.
Love the ceilings. The blanket on our bed turned out greyish, but it's actually brown.
My problem wall: I have no idea what on earth to put here. This is where you come in. COMMENT.
Andrew's nightstand. Confession: I cleaned off his stuff and stuck that candle there. He'd be mortified if I made it look like he had put a candle on his nightstand.
Some people really hate matchy-matchy. I'm not one of them. I want everything in a MBR to be the same, balanced. So this is my matching nightstand, complete with water bottle for middle of the night thirst quences, a phone charger, and a really long stand-outish electrical cord. I made Andrew's side look decent. I left mine.
Some little guy came into our world approximately 11 months and 2 weeks ago, leaving our office stuff without a home. It moved from our bedroom to the dining room and now, back to the bedroom. And here it will stay until...well, until our house multiplies itself.
Some say ceiling fans are eyesores. I say if you live in hot & humid MS, it's called a necessity.
So, there you have it. The brown bedroom! I welcome your suggestions!
