OK...every year I say this and it never happens...I really want to spruce up our master bedroom. The emphasis being on the word REALLY! I mean it...fresh paint, replacing our tired old curtains, and buying new bed linens! Over the years our bedroom has been a chameleon of colors, from apple green to romantic pink, to the current neutral color of a light beige. This color, quite frankly, has not only grown very old on me but also filthy dirty from our four legged friend el Busto! (He sleeps with his 4 giant paws on the wall!)
So yesterday I had a doctor's appointment, nothing serious just a routine blood pressure screen, and afterwards I decided to shoot on over to the nearby Home Goods store and check out their newly stocked spring merchandise. As I was milling around this enormous Home Goods (love it) I came upon this pretty green and white Laura Ashley quilt for only $39.99. What a steal for a queen sized bed! Suddenly I became madly in love with the idea of our bedroom being drenched in tones of green with a background of bright white...now this became my new mission. I managed to pick up some 600 count sheets (yeah) and 3 coordinating bed pillows in both a soothing grassy green and crispy white.
As result of yesterday's shopping spree, I ended up spending most of the morning today hunting for inspiration on the internet. Here are a few spaces I came across which totally inspire me.
To me green is classically fresh in addition to being able to produce a feeling of calm. Green, the color which represents nature best, is supposedly the most popular color in decorating. And did you know that green is the color which is the easiest for the human eye to see? It is also said that green can actually improve vision. While I am not sure if there is enough medical evidence to support that claim, I would buy into the fact that since it is the easiest color for your eye to focus on, the color green could have a role in reducing eye strain.
So as Mr. Rosemary Lane continues to plug along with his mantel project in the living room, I will be beginning the task of choosing a new color for our bedroom walls. I just can't wait to see how this room turns out!
Wishing you all a wonderful President's Day weekend!
