A couple months back, before we moved into the house, my diminutive grandma
and I were strolling through Sears and happened to stumble upon a sale in the bedding section. A comforter caught my eye, and I took it home.
When we finally got moved in I was able to unwrap the comforter and put it on the bed for my first view of it in all it’s anticipated glory. And it was ok.
I liked the pretty gatherings and the contrast of the white against the black bed. But it made me think of a cow in a wedding dress. Cute and all, but just not right.
I accidentally found myself in their home section recently whereupon a different comforter caught my eye. And it also came home with me.
Muuuuch better. The gray feels like a more natural conduit between the softness I want in the bedroom and the rustic feel of the rest of the house. The pattern sewn in to this one feels more structured and for whatever reason makes me think of the exposed beams in the living room.
The gray also ties in to our bathroom better, where we’ve got lots of earth toned stone and slate, and black onyx counter tops.
I also picked up some too-short-curtains for the french doors..
(Privacy. It’s a good thing.)
…that lead to our newly built deck!
So all I’ve got left to do in the master area is the fun stuff - decorate the deck by planting flowers in some rusty things, and find some side tables and art for the bedroom… aaaand learn how to sew longer curtains.
Who wants to
sew me some longer curtains help??
