Ok, let’s talk about our bedroom. I think this is the most pictures I have ever posted of it, mostly because we have done nothing of import in it since we moved in. It’s not that I don’t like our bedroom, it’s that I still find it a little lacking. I am trying to improve things a bit these days.
Isn’t it always like that? Mom and dad’ bedroom usually is the armpit of the home, and the last place to get some love. But I got some ideas.
If you see that wall on the back you’ll notice a new addition. We brought those when we moved to Punta Cana more than 2 years ago. They are limited reproductions of watercolors depicting shells from the island. I had those in a closet, where Bo found them, and asked why we hadn’t hung those on the wall. The lack of frames seemed as good an excuse as any.
And then I decided to hang them on the wall right away, while I order (or make) some frames. I used some curtain rings that came with the curtain bars in Little Mango’s bedroom and that I never used. I now like it so much that whatever I do is now going to involve those curtain rings. I’ll keep you posted.
So far I have got a few great ideas from you guys, like AP’s suggestion to paint the back wall in that blue in Little Mango’s painting, or Jo’s idea of adding curtain panels to the corners of the bed (yes, I am repurposing the canopy), or Trina’s support for my idea to use embossed wallpaper.
Right now I am convinced I need more texture on that back wall, not color. But since I am not in the mood for any big construction projects I am thinking on something closer to removable wall treatments.
These are some I am considering. They are all reasonably priced, I need them for one wall only after all. I would still paint / keep it white. If time and money were not a constrain I’d love a white brick wall on the back, but that is not going to happen, I’ve had enough of dust and construction mess to last me a lifetime.
So far I am leaning towards the beadboard embossed wallpaper (2), or the brick embossed wallpaper (3), or the leafy pattern (4). Decisions, decisions.
I also have to think of a way to add curtains to our oddly-shaped windows on our slopped walls. We’re still waking up way too early almost a year after moving because I can’t think of anything I’d like on the windows.
I’d love to hear more ideas about my wall and windows dilemmas. The more ideas I bounce around my head, the better chance I have of coming up with something useful.
