last night i finally got off my bottom and arranged my new bedroom to my satisfaction. of course that meant going to bed at 3:00 a.m. so i may be a bit fuzzy around the edges as i can rarely sleep past 8:30 a.m. light comes in the room - i'm awake. *sigh*
so, this is my dilemma. i have this weird taste that is a combination of modern, vintage and some tradtional style. until this move i've always been able to make it work...but, i was given a thomasville bedroom suite that is early american. not my taste at all...but it's solid wood and, well...free. right? i've also accumulated two beige coverlets from my mom as well as two beautiful angel pillows. (the blue one is mine)
you can see i've taken off the high boy posters off the footboard and i'm looking for finials for the shorter posts. i'm in the market for a coverlet, comforter that would help me blend the brownish pillows, beige coverlets/carpet with the ralph lauren suede paint in a chocolate brown color over the brick fireplace and khaki walls. i was thinking orange, sage and/or brown.
i'm not big on florals but, there have been some great graphics i've seen around that i love. but - will that look good with an early american bed? should i even care? also in the room is a small art deco armoire (antique) and a wooden chest (build by my father) that is painted black. the chest is easily repainted, if necessary. oh...i also have a goldish velvet tufted armchair and footstool.
impossible you say? nay, nay....but i'm open for suggestions that do not include throw it all away.
