Let me give you a little bit of background behind this conversation. Our master bedroom was the first room in our house that I decorated when we bought it. It was that horrible maroon color that I know I've mentioned before, and I just could not sleep in that room when the walls made me want to run a black light and check for used heroin needles under the bed. So, wanting to get rid of the horrible maroon as soon as humanly possible, I hastily picked a color, grabbed some artwork that "worked" (and I use the word loosely here), and called it a day.
Fast forward to last night when I had way too much time to myself to think about how much I hate our bedroom. I mean, it really does not scream relaxing or romantic to me. I want my master bedroom to be elegant and simple, neutral yet fun. I do not want dark brown walls and bad floral prints, which is what we've got now. I guess this is what happens to a lot of people with the first room or two in their first house. I just have to change it, and I just want one room that is totally and completely finished... since none of them are.
So, tonight while watching the Packers get their spandex-covered asses handed to them by the Falcons (or at least so far that's what's happened) and recovering from a nasty little flu bug, I decided to put together a moodboard for the master bedroom. I used olioboard, which I thought would be pretty easy. It was, except getting all of the room components into one of their room sets was a pain, so I just left them out of a room.
I love the curtains and bedding, which will run us about $200 if we buy them with coupons or on sale. Then the chair is probably wishful thinking, but I like it. I thought a more neutral beige or maybe a tanish color would work, but I'm not positive. I love the tree stencil for one of the walls or maybe the wall by our bay window. The only part I'm not 100% sure on yet is the color for the walls. Any suggestions? I feel that maybe it'll be a little too neutral if I go with a beige or tan.
I am determined to just really focus on this room and put other larger projects on the back-burner for a bit.
