For several years, I yearned for a Restoration Hardware (RH) bed. So expensive.
One day I was in a furniture store right next door to RH and they had what looked like the same bed, but at half the price. And guess what...it was made locally.
Restoration Hardware Bed
Now--did you notice that, quite by accident, the bed frame, wall color, drapes, lamps and lampshades are all the same golden brown color?
I say by accident because the builder painted the walls that color, the drapes we already had from a previous house, the lamps and lampshades are from two houses ago, and that's the only color the knock-off bed frame came in.
At Christmas time, I bought two red and cream shams at Pottery Barn. They bring a little color to the brown room, but as Winter fades, the deer-themed shams will be put away. I'm looking for another color to perk up all the brown cabinets and walls.
Not surprising, the rest of the house tends toward a cream and golden brown color too, which is hard on a gal who really likes bright white cabinets and trim.
I happened upon this Sherwin-Williams' blue paint color recently. It's kind of growing on me.
As you can see below, our kitchen counters are brown too and our front room, kitchen and breakfast room are one big area.
I found a picture of a similar room painted white, using a similar blue color for accents. Wild Bill is resistant to white walls, but I don't see any other solution.
As you can see from the first pictures, our room is so dark --even with the window coverings open-- I can hardly take pictures in there. I would be thrilled if the white paint lightened up our room like the room above.
Thanks for dropping by!
