I wish I had a little taped promo for this post like they have on Saturday Night Live.
Something kind of like this…. Reeeeder questionnnnnns. Reeeeeeeder questionnnnnns. ReeEEEeeeEEEEr quuuuuuestions.
(so close but no cigar)
Maybe I just need choreography to go along with it.
Seriously….one of my favorite parts of writing a blog is the reader question. Usually I e-mail an answer back…but today I thought I’d try something a little different and answer a reader question here on the blog in case any of you had a similar room dilemma. So here goes.
A while back I got an e-mail from a reader that went a little something like this:
“I hope you can help me! I’m really stuck when it comes to my master bedroom project.
We have an older ranch style home that we’ve been working on for years. Recently we finished our small master bath, and it is time to move on to the master bedroom….but, I am stuck. :( The bathroom features octagonal white floor tiles, a white ruffled shower curtain, a galvanized barn light, a diy concrete countertop and touches of barn wood. The bedroom needs to flow from this room seamlessly. I love farm house style, but I do not love shabby chic. I love some cottage elements, but not to the extreme. I love industrial, rustic, northwest, and french styles, but I can’t even pick a paint color!! Currently, our room is a blank slate. When I think I have found a paint color, I back off and think I should go with BM Simply White. (Our bed is made of a dark wood.) I want a chandelier of some sort above the bed, but what style? I love white bedding, but would also love to incorporate some gray. I love layering and natural elements. I have to work with what I’ve got, which unfortunately includes average height ceilings and beige carpeting, boo!
I dream of this decorating dilemma at night. I need to make some sort of progress before I drive myself and my husband mad! :)
Thank you so much!
