We've recently redone our kitchen floors, and I've been making new curtains, and tablecloths and things. Which has put me in a home-decorating mood.....so I began studying my own room and realized a few changes for the better and brighter could be made.....
First of all - here is my room as it has been since being rearranged last winter:
I still like the arrangement - but the colors are all a bit muddled - no theme or scheme. Nothing very bright either. So -- I've come up with a few ideas to change that:
I'd like to go with a color scheme of robins-egg blue and coral pink. With pops of lavendar, celery green and buttery yellow.
My tentative to-do list for my room. Nothing too major or expensive - but I think it shall be a big improvement!
-Iron bed frame painted a robin's-egg-blue
-White chenille bedspread (which I already own), with coordinating ruffled pillow shams and throw pillows, and buy or make a new dust ruffle.
-Paint my sewing table, cedar chest, vanity stool, sewing stool, picture frames, ironing board, and bedside table various pretty and soft (but not pastel...) colors.
-Recover both lamp shades - something fun....
-Find a lovely fluffy rug for the center of the room.
-Decide if I want any kind of window treatment over the sheer curtains ( a valance....or a few whispy drapes at the top?)
- Decide what to put above the computer desk....(I'm thinking of making a pretty bulletin board with some scrumptious matching fabric...)
A color scheme wasn't hard to decide on. Two of my favorite colors (in clothing...fabric....and everything else!) are aqua blue (or robins-egg-blue) and coral pink. (both dark and light).
And those two colors together??? welll.....
I love the idea of buying all these little pieces of delicous fabric in my favorite colors (whether they match exactly or not) and having a riot of pretty pillows on my white bedspread....
