Design Distraction.

It's been awhile since I've redecorated a room in our house. One could argue that we just did the basement, but we really didn't get new "decorating" stuff. Just paint, carpet & furniture. Most of the decor items were repurposed from the bedroom formerly known as our office (now Alex's nursery).

I think I'm getting the itch to redo our bedroom. Here's what we have now:

The bed has cranberry sheets and far too many decorative pillows to count. It's a sickness, really. I can't avoid the pillow aisle at Home Goods. I incorporated little touches of various shades of red around the room with accessories and tied it all together with a cool, circular rug. I always, always, always wanted a black, white and red bedroom, so to have one as my first "married" bedroom was simply fab.

But as women usually do, I'm getting bored of it. Time for change!

The new spring ads are really starting to make me obsess over the yellow/gray (grey?) combination. I'm currently loving this:

I would pair it with slate sheets that would coordinate well with a new wall color:

It's a small room, but if we had the space I would totally have to own this little chair to place in a designated reading/putting on socks area:

And just imagine the pillows I could get at Home Goods!! I kill myself.

Oh Joooooeeeeeeeeyyyy?? ::bats eyes::

Don't forget we also decorated the basement with our new TV and TV stand.

If the room is small, painting the walls that color could make it feel closed in. Maybe an accent wall, or a border around the top?

I personally L.O.V.E. it!!! I have been obsessed with yellow and grey/black myself! Go for it girl!

I have purchased the grey yellow colors combo in clothing lately. I love it. My bedroom is light grey - we painted a room a darker grey before and it was too dark, felt like prison :) Just be careful on what you pick. if unsure, going lighter might be safer.

You are too funny! I like what you have in your room now. It's very classy. I understand the itch though. I have been getting it lately too! Keep us posted on what you do. Can't wait to see the new digs!
