I like my bedroom. Really.
Brian and I worked very hard to create our bedroom, moving a wall over 4 feet so that our tiny room became a small room… and we installed a wall-to-wall-to-ceiling wardrobe that I LOVE. We hung a romantic chandelier over our bed, I painted the walls a warm, rich mossy green and the ceiling a soft sand. I made gorgeous chocolate brown drapes in a decadent silk and, while I have yet to find the perfect duvet cover, I do like the fabric I purchased to make euro shams (another project waiting for me).
Sounds okay don’t you think? It is. The little peek here looks pretty good, yes? It does. Really.
So why am is my head being turned by other bedrooms?!
Why do I drool at soft, monochromatic yet bright and airy rooms?
Like this one…
What do I love about this bedroom? I’ve thought and thought about that question and what it boils down to is MOOD. It’s how I imagine I’d feel to actually BE in this bedroom; what it would be like to lay in the lush and comfy-looking bed and gaze up at the beam ceiling… happiness!
Maybe it’s the soft yellow – a colour I’ve always loved… yellow’s a happy colour =) Then again, it could be the fact that – while this space is gently, softly feminine – it’s grounded and balanced with a few perfectly placed darker, more masculine pieces of furniture and framed art pieces. I see the beam ceiling as masculine, too. Feminine & masculine = yin & yang = happy. No fussy elements. Just fresh and clean = happy, happy, happy!
Yep… I’d be soooo happy waking up in this room every morning!!
I feel so guilty!!
I’m cheating on my really quite nice – albeit small – bedroom! I’m lusting after a large, bright, softly appealing room where I imagine pure happiness!!
I might have to re-think my bedroom decor! 8-/
It’s your turn again… tell me in a comment or by email (edindesign at shaw dot ca)… are you cheating on a room in your home? Do you covet a living room, kitchen or bedroom that isn’t your own? A piece of furniture? A design style?
Are you a Room Adulterer like me?!
You have my permission to cheat… and to tell! HaHa!!
Tell me all about YOUR room infidelity (the why) and include a link to your guilty pleasure! I’ll pull together a post that showcases and celebrates your fantasies – and I’ll publish it next Friday. Here… check out what I wrote the last time I invited our sassy DesignTies readers to confess… and then…
