I was blinded by a good deal (great price, but so wrong for the room) with my last duvet cover purchase. The pattern was too contemporary for the room so I’d be lying if I said I was bummed when Suge accidentally ripped a big hole in it. I didn’t expect to replace it so soon (the rip was manageable), but alas, I found another good deal.
I was hesitant to say the least (uhm, wasn’t I just in a similar situation? You know, blinded by a good deal?) but I felt super confident it would work. The colors were dead on… the green (with my lime green sofa), the orange (with the bedroom’s stained glass window) and the gray (with my PANYL’d dresser).
I was right! (Phew.)
We switched to the gray, lighter blanket for the summer, with the duvet folded up at the bottom. The duvet generally stays at the bottom, with a sheet and gray coverlet doing most of the covering up at night. Really, for now, the duvet is just there to look pretty.
At Target, while I was totally indecisive on whether or not I should buy it, Aaron conceded with, after being completely against the purchase, “Well, it does look like your painting.”
I moved the gold lamps in here, as the office is in a state of flux at the moment. We have a bit of a lighting shortage in the bedroom, so I’ve liked having them in here. Prior to the gold lamps being added, all that’s there is the table lamp next to the lady painting and the DIY’ed copper pendant, that barely lets out any light.
This room is 85% there, I just have a couple of tweaks I’d like to tackle before calling it a day:
- Swap out the existing beige curtains (they’re actually painters’ cloths) for grey curtains (these are gorgeous, and affordable, in person)
- Re-install the wood trim around the fireplace tile (one of those not-so-fun projects that requires tools I don’t have)
- Add a rug
