We received oil! On Tuesday, and then our Internet service immediately crapped out. I have no idea what happened, but it was back when I checked today, so hey, that works for me! I will be catching up on your blogs yet again, so don't be surprised to see comments from me on old posts! So now that the internet is working, and we got the oil delivery kinks all worked out, guess what?! NO WATER PRESSURE! Yay! I'm honestly at the point where it is now funny, and I didn't really want to do the dishes anyway.
NOW, down to business. I need your help once again. Tell me how you feel about yellow walls. Specifically in the bedroom. I have a love hate relationship with yellow. I can't wear yellow, I look ill. But then I see a picture like this and I think 'ooooooh' (yes, I am THAT simple).
Our bedroom is much smaller than that specific beauty, and we don't have the jaw-dropping ceiling, but we DO have beams. White beams to be exact, which makes me think it might just work.
The yellow is really starting to grow on me. Now, I am not quite that girly of a decorator, I have no frilly lampshades, nor do I intend to buy any, but the overall look appeals to me. I like that banged up flea market finds, the clean but lived in look, and the sunny feel of these rooms, I am just having a really hard time making a final decision on this one. I got this far...
..yep, I duct taped it to the wall, I wanted to see how I liked it throughout the day you know? The colors on the picture are actually coming through a little brighter than they actually are in person. I originally wanted to go with 'yellow ribbon' (middle color) but now 'fairy lily' is growing on me (top color). I just would hate having to tell people I painted my bedroom 'fairy lily'. They might think I was that weird kid in class that did her book report on unicorns and fairy novels...oh wait, that was me. Never mind.
This is what our bedding looks like, and I think it will work for the look I am going for...I think.
Maybe not the sheets, but when after we turned in the keys to our old apartment we realized that we had left our nice sheets in the dryer. So it was the peach-ish ones on sale at Wal-Mart, or the moose ones Matt had in college. Needless to say I opted for peach.
So tell me, is the yellow a bad idea? Or will I wake up in my yellow room and just feel sunny? What do you think of the overall idea for the rooms? Matt, dear fella that he is, doesn't particularly care one way or another. As long as he has a pillow and a blanket he is happy, so any advice is MORE than welcome!
