I've been scheming and dreaming about more decor for the house. Naturally. As I do.
Anyway, our bedroom is far from done, and I can't wait to get it to a more finished state. This house is hard for me - it's so much larger than our last space, that it takes more time to fill and furnish, and as Ive stated before, it's naturally more expensive, so the process is a little bit slower. It's always fun, though. One challenge I've encountered in the space, is the high ceilings. I love them, but it creates such a large space to fill, visually, and in our bedroom, the ceiling arches really high! Here's a photo:
Right now, it's basically leftover stuff from the condo, with a couple of purchases we made right when we moved in. The sofa is the one that I bought for $25 and reupholstered in white duck canvas, (it was the sofa from our condo) and the king size bed was one of the first large purchases we made when we first moved in. We love it, but let me tell you - it's hard to dress a king size bed. They're just not as cozy looking, and take more pillows (Something I try to avoid, because I know Jordan isn't the biggest fan of my pillow obsession).
I have removed the sconces that I wasn't the biggest fan of, and replaced the ones on the left side with these cuter ones from Lowes:
They are only $35 and really cute. The other side of the room (where the beds are) has plates covering the spot where the light fixtures were. I know - not the cutest solution, and not my first plan, but after talk with an electrician about all the work that would have to be done to safely remove and cover the spot where the old sconces were, I just decided to remove them myself, and use plates to cover. They actually blend in quite well after painting them.
you can see the sconce on the other side of the room in this photo, and there is one on the other side of the bathroom wall, to the left, as well.
Anyway, I want to paint the walls, which I've discussed before. I want to do a weird, odd color. Two colors I have in mind: inky dark blue-green, or a fleshy peach. I know, weird.
I just think this room needs some edge. Here are some inspiration photos for the peach:
I don't want it to be pink - I want it true peachy, almost a neutral and understated color. NOT PINK.

Via pinterest... this is what I mean about soft and neutral. Not pink not peach not beige. Somewhere in the middle of all of those.
From Caitlin Creer's website. Clearly, this room is super feminine and not the style I'm going for, but I think the walls are pretty.
I imagine mine with brass accents and wooden night stands.
from pinterest, too. This one doesn't have a link, so if you know where it came from, tell me. I love the top row here.
Anyway, I think it could be really beautiful with some modern accents. Plus, I think painting the room would help with my all white couch and my white bedding. Break it up a little.
INspiration for a dark color. Though, now that I think about it, I Think I'm leaning towards a lighter color. With those high arching ceilings, I think dark might be too much.
woof, but those bright colors sure do look good against the dark walls!
THIS IS THE PERFECT COLOR. exactly what color I was thinking.
Anyway! I love these two ideas. If I do peach, I'm thinking the ceiling needs to be painted, too. Whichever color I do in the bedroom, I'll probably do the other one in the guest bedroom. I can't wait to decorate it, either!
Thoughts? I know these are weird ideas, and some of you won't like them. I just need some edge in that room! It's far too boring right now, and too predictable. I have dreams of cool turned leg tables on either side of our bed, and I've been on the hunt for a few months, but haven't found them yet.
