The move is going great, we are happily sitting on boxes and musing about the walls. What should go where and who should hang what, you know the drill.
The only room that is finished is Jack's room. And by finished I mean the furniture is in place. The guest room is getting close, there is a bed in there at least. With clean sheets. Our room? Well, not so much, but we have gotten used to living in a basement for the last four months, so pretty much anywhere with windows is a bit of a luxury at this point, even if the mattress is still on the floor at this point.
Speaking of luxury, in a rare fit of indulgence, Matt and I went out and made a pretty big splurge. Since getting married two years ago, we have had hand-me-down beds. Not that it has been a problem, we have always liked our bed, but it is a full sized bed, and when you are six feet two inches tall (Matt...not me!) and your wife is a whirling helicopter of elbows throughout the night, you start to feel a little cramped. Poor guy. We found a good deal and bought ourselves a new bed, new mattress, AND new furniture for the bedroom. We felt that we needed a little retreat, where we could snuggle and be exactly what we are - a young married couple.
But here is the problem, I have looked at comforter after quilt after duvet after sheet set, and I CANNOT figure out how to decorate this room!! Our new furniture won't be here until July, which is actually a blessing because if I had to buy our bedding right now I would end up with something I most likely regret in a week.
Here is the stock photo of the bed we settled on, Matt has loved sleigh beds for as long as I have known him.
How would YOU decorate? What colors do you see in your mind's eye? I thought greys at one point, but then I thought blues. I like the idea of whites but we cant paint here, so the white walls and white bedding might be a bit...blah. I like the orangey color in the photo, but it feels very autumnal to me. Matt dislikes anything purple or anything too 'girly', but I'm not usually a fan of stripes...
Help! Point me in the direction you think would work well here, PLEASE!
