The weather today leaves much to be desired, so I’ve transported myself away… to this relaxing bedroom. Bear and I recently had a shower, as I mentioned before, and thanks to some of our very generous gift-givers, our bedroom is slowly becoming a little more of a haven. Eventually, the plan is to make it look something like this. A neutral gray quilt and creamy duvet have us almost there, but still need to update the furniture and get some throw pillows going. (I think I see a thrift shop day in my future.)
To decorate with shells or to not? That is the question. We don’t live anywhere near water, but I must say there is something fun about seeing shells, drift wood, or anything lake and beach related in a home. I’m seeing a lot of coral pieces popping up in stores lately, and that’s one idea I just love. (I’m a water sign. What can I say?)
Beach houses and condos have forever utilized pastels, which are most definitely not my thing. I like the use of these bright pops of color to turn up the volume on the “typical” beachy style. What do you think?
