Last week I was experiencing a serious pressure related block up/meltdown, and pretty much as soon as I (you) gave me permission not to decide, I decided a whole bunch of decor related stuff. I also decided not to worry about the house so much anymore, mostly because I am now 35 weeks pregnant and I look like I swallowed a whale and I have a sad little waddle going on. Apparently a tiny human will be rocketing out of my hoohah in five weeks or less and I should maybe probably focus on preparing for that, too.
At least now Baby X won’t have to spend his first month or two of life staring up at a patchwork quilt of peachbluegraypurple paint samples in the master bedroom, because that shit is DONE.
Sadly this is not our bedroom, but the color is a very similar medium purple gray. I took the advice of Anita and Christian and revisted my sample of Dior Gray. Sanders gave me his blessing (because Sanders is a saint and is totally allowed to bestow such things upon mere mortals), so we did the deed and it is good.
I also ordered some desperately needed new bedding… old bedding may or may not have gotten caught in the painting crossfire.
In a reversal of my usual hatred for contrast, I’m planning to go mostly light and bright against the moody painted walls. Like so:
Because a basic white quilt and shams can be dressed up in so many ways.
Pretty, simple pillows and ikat blanket.
I might have ordered some coral sheets…
And a giant faux fur blanket to cover up our new quilt, because kids and cats (and lazy parents) are murder on white.
Details and pictures to come when I can stand long enough to take them.
In the meantime, let us bask in the glory of my decisiveness…
because it won’t last for long.
