Okay, so I admit I am one of those people who (sometimes) reads the end of books before I read the middle. And I've been compulsively planning the decorating of our house before the important structural work is complete. So while I know I won't be able to indulge in any of the things I've been finding, I am content to collect the ideas and save them for when the time actually comes.
I've been thinking about how to decorate the guest room, since one of the most exciting parts of having a house here is the prospect of inviting people to stay with us. I thought I knew exactly what I was going to do, but an impromptu trip to Target this morning turned my plans upside down.
What I had planned was turquoise and gray:
But after this morning, turquoise and gray seems boring!
so how about
yellow and gray... or lime green
or warm earthy reds and browns
the knobs are from anthropologie and will look lovely on my antique dresser
whether turquoise, gold or green
and while M's not crazy about it, i'm in love with birds
on bedding, paintings, or elsewhere
i love the silhouette of a bird and think they're lovely looking
would these owls creep you out if you were my guest?
one last note... i love this sheet music hook
wouldn't it be the perfect addition to my new purple music room?
pictures of THAT soon to follow.
