As far back as I can remember, okay maybe after I was over my wicker-canopy bedroom set dream, I have loved the look of a clean white bedroom with a big fluffy white bed as the center piece. If it weren't for my grubby little children (no offense my sweet grubby ones) I would hands down go for this look. A lovely, breezy and unencumbered space free from clutter seems like the perfect little sanctuary for slumber. It's timeless, it's low maintenance and so inviting.
Yesterday I took another load of items from my house and afterwards instead of basking in my accomplishments I found myself taping up paint chips to my bedroom wall. It appears I may have a problem. Minutes after I taped up my chips I came down stairs to find I had missed a phone call. It was a guy from my local paint store letting me know that they were having a 40% off sale on paints starting tomorrow "in case I had any more painting projects." You know it boyfriend. I told Fisher and he said, "you have a painting addiction." I say it was a magical coincidence. Now if I can just choose a color before the sale ends. I have found from my last most recent painting projects (my hallways and living room) white paint is the most difficult color to choose and I am planning on going for some sort of a muted white in my room. Right now my bedroom walls are avocado green. I chose that color when I was pregnant with M&L and I blame it on the pregnancy hormones, all the colors I chose at that time were named after food. Not that it's not a decent color but it's not a great one for an already dark bedroom. Now if I could just have some of the architectural elements that some of these rooms have. Sigh . . .
