I am super inspired by my new favorite show- Top Design. Yes, I am a Bravo channel junkie. I watch Project Runway and I head to my sewing machine, I watch Top Chef and I am whipping up all kinds of glamor in the kitchen. Now with Top Design, I have sketched out every main room in my house, and damn, they look great. I find myself drifting towards the paint section in WalMart (don’t hate, you know you shop there too!) and I’m throwing together eggplant and steel grey, Tiffany blue and chartreuse. I LOVE COLOR!!! My husband and I finally dragged ourselves to Ikea (I LOVE IKEA!!!) and bought what I refer to as “the grown up bed”. It’s not as if we were sleeping in a toddler bed before, but we did just have a stacked mattress set. Now we’ve got a proper bed frame with a lovely rustic looking headboard that I just adore (I was going to say LOVE again, but that would just be going overboard… ) (LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!) Now I’m trying to find the perfect color for our walls. Right now they are the most depressing shade of bright blue you’ve ever seen. I want rich and fantastic and lush! I’m kind of leaning towards deep chocolate browns with just a hit of sexy canary yellow in some of the accessories. It sounds hideous, I know, but if you lived in my mind… well, no… you don’t want that. You’d be trapped for eternity and go mad.
Will I post pictures of my fantastic room make over? Don’t hold your breath. We still don’t have a dresser so all our clothes are artistically folded and sorted on top of (drumroll please…) plastic bins. LOVE IT!
So here is the challenge… I want to hear from you… I need design ideas. The room is huge and empty with beige carpet. Here’s the bed we have (not with those linens though).
