Trying to redecorate when you have no money to spend is a real challenge. So in order to keep my sanity, I have decided to try to makeover my master bedroom and guest room by basically switching bedding. I am hoping to paint the guest room, but the master bedroom will not be repainted because the high ceilings are very difficult and I doubt I should be climbing a ladder in my condition. I think that the wall color looks pretty good with the bedding. What do you think? I also think that the bedding looks pretty good with the bed finish.
So the next question: skirt or no skirt? (bed skirt that is?) I've always thought bed skirts were absolutely essential to having a finished looking bed/room, but because the footboard and side boards, I'm kind of thinking I don't need a bed skirt?
My next dilemma is color of the sheets and curtains. I bought some chocolate colored sheets, but I did not like them with the wall color or bed finish. So I guess I'll just try some other colors. I think the green (in the bedding) is a little too much for the curtains, but will work for sheets. I would love to do pink or coral sheets (from the bedding), but I'm not sure Jerrod would go for that.
On to the guest room. This lovely blanket that Candace crocheted for Tyler, is my inspiration for this room.
I was looking through a magazine in the ob/gyn waiting room and all of these colors were listed as favorites for 2009 from some of my favorite designers on HGTV. Candace, you are so great at color schemes and way ahead of the trend since you did this in 2007. I really love chocolate brown, so I want to do an accent wall with that color. Not sure about the rest of the room. The room is small with one window, but since it is on the back side of the house, it gets a lot of sun light.
I am having a yard sale in the spring, so I'm hoping with the money I make, I will be able to buy a few accessories for both rooms. Lamps, wall decor, etc. I'd like to get both of these rooms mostly finished by the end of March, because then it will be time to do John and Tyler's room, and the new nursery.
Any suggestions are welcome. You will not hurt my feeling if you think my ideas stink.
