Since our crisis with the hot water heater (if you missed that you can read about it here) I am now having to chose a new color for my bedroom walls as well as carpet. I have not liked the wall color since it went up about 2 years ago so while this ordeal is very stressful, I’m looking forward to a new wall color in the bedroom.
Now I need all you decorating divas to chime in and give me some suggestions. Here’s what I’m working with and what has to stay:
1. Upholstered headboard from Ballards in creamy pintuck. I have been using a white matlasse spread and with dark khaki dust ruffle and shams. It’s not working. For whatever reason, the headboard comes off yellow-y with the white although I’ve seen that combination in blogland but of course, colors aren’t always true on the internet. I’ve also considered making a “slipcover” for the headboard with ties on the side to match a dust ruffle and shams….see I’m all over the place on this!
2. We have a triple dresser and highboy in a dark cherry finish…these have to stay.
3. The window treatments are tortishell bamboo blinds and my go-to drop cloth drapes. I plan on sewing a wide contrasting border at the bottom like I did in my dining room but haven’t done that yet b/c I’m not sure what I’m using on the bed!
I wanted to just paint the walls a creamy color but that’s been impossible to decide. While at the paint store Saturday, someone in there was getting another gallon of paint in Macadamia…which I really like. Another color sample I have is Woodstock Tan which is a really rich color but hubby thinks it’s too dark. I guess I could have the Woodstock Tan cut to 1/2 the strength.
Now I’d love any suggestions for paint color and if you have some inspiration pictures you could send me a link to, I’d love that as well. The sheetrock work is being done tomorrow morning so I’m thinking the painting will start over the weekend.
I can’t wait to hear from ya’ll!
