It's happening with my master bedroom update. I'm wavering all over the place. One minute, I'm sticking to the plan I originally drew up, and the next I'm doing a complete 180.
If you read the post with my inspiration board, you'll know that I ordered these two Neena euro shams from Pottery Barn.
Well, they came in, but when I put them on my bed I wasn't as in love with them as I was when I saw them online. The colors are more turquoise than blue (which isn't necessarily bad) and, for some reason, they didn't have the same allure to me once I got them home and put them on my bed. At nearly $60 a piece, that's not good enough. For that price, I have to be totally in love. Know what I mean?
I've searched bedding and fabrics and have come up with a zillion different plans since then.
Sarah Richardson-vintage-quilt-at-the-end-of-the-bed kind of fashion.
(I love how Sarah uses stunning quilts at the end of her beds! -- see below)
But, when I got the fabric samples home and mixed and matched, things just didn't come together or wow me.
I stopped at Pottery Barn with my mom yesterday (they were in town for a short visit!) and took home these two Charlie Paisley pillow shams for a trial run:
They really make the room look fresh.
I'm thinking I might keep them and maybe add a little gingham at the end of the bed. Like a new duvet cover for the down comforter we keep at the end of the bed. Ikea has this cute one:
Here's my idea board:
After I came up with the board, I saw this over at Holly's blog:
She's using the Charlie paisley in brown (which is no longer available) with gingham - LOVE!! Could I just have this bedroom please?! It is SO cute and comfy! And, look at those cute side tables!
So, I might be on the right track. I'll keep you posted as to what comes of my indecision.
Have a great Tuesday!
