I got help from Alycia Wicker on designing the room as I’d like to see it. A Zen Retreat. I’ve taken down the crown molding, taken down the curtains and envisioned the room as it will look when we can get the time/funds to start redecorating.
One thing at a time right?
Here are the dream design pieces.
The color palette:
The first color: Behind the bed, Accent wall.
The second color: The rest of the room
The last color: Window sills, and trim around the carpet
The drapes will look like this:
And then pillows like this:
Duvet that looks like this
Oh… and artwork like these!
See what I mean? Zen like right? Some great shelves, candles that help pull us into a quiet space where we can hold onto our own romantic oasis. With 7 kids in the house, we need a sanctuary.
Here is what the room looked like when I decorated it for Valentine’s Day:
Not very Zen like huh? That is why the “All I want for Christmas” contest would be a dream come true for this room! It would make the room “ours”.
I won't be selfish, head over there and check it out! The deadline is November 17th! Perhaps you can win one of the three prizes they are offering.
