Cool Cats

A double dose of dastardly just opened a can of whoop ass on me, and I fear the only way to survive Monday + a face melting high of 108 degrees is to… hide. One of these places should do.

I actually have a super busy week of shopping with the inlaws coming up, and I’m hoping to shower you with progress pics of my own home as well as theirs very soon. I promise things are happening, but when it’s 108 degrees outside, things just happen verrrrrrry slooooooooowlllllly.

Later, taters. Have a great Monday!

Can You Help Me Buy a Bed?

Wouldn’t it be nice if I actually bought something instead of just talking about buying something? Well, today is my birthday and I think I’m going to spend that capital on a fancy new bed. I’m currently agonizing over two options, and I know you fine people will happily tell me what to do. Let’s check out the playas:

I know I know, the styling and photography make me want to claw my eyes out, too. But this sucker is only $255 for a king from Overstock. I have black nightstands so I would definitely go with the black frame. It’s only 11 inches high which is ok, but it could be lower… maybe I could saw the legs off? I’m also worried about the corners jabbing my shins in the middle of the night.

Then there’s this guy from West Elm (thanks for the tip from kind commenter DMS). I love the proportions, and it’s only a shade over nine inches high, which is perfect. But it’s $400 (plus shipping and tax), and I’m not sure how I feel about the white with my black furniture…

You can kind of see my nightstands in this ugly picture I took for craigslist when I posted our bed for sale.

So, what do you guys think? Black or white? Or something else? I’m open to anything cheap and low slung platformy. Headboards need not apply because I think once lowered the bed will sit just beneath window. Then I can switch out the curtains for some roman shades and this room will be done. Hooray!

But first I need to choose a bed. Help.

It’s Oh So Quiet

I have laryngitis. I don’t know if this has ever happened to you, but it’s really very annoying. Thank goodness I can still type (although watch me get fingeritis next, because that’s how the MF cookie has been crumbling around here). I do realize things could be much much worse (I got to eat pizza last night!), and so I hereby do solemnly swear that no talk of illness shall issue forth from my fingers next week. It will all be sunshine, rainbows and sparkle puppies licking bubblegum ice cream cones with unicorns on top.

But that’s next week. Today we are headed to the quiet box.

I’m not dead yet (imagine my best Monty Python impression), so I would like to spend my convalescence in a room that is quiet, yes — relaxing and soothing. But also interesting. There has to be a little something something going on to inspire me to fully recover and conquer truly urgent, earth shattering problems, like how am I going to wean Ike off all this horrible TV I’ve been letting him watch while we both lay on the couch like plague infested slugs?

I promise. No talk of sickness next week. Not one word.

Yes or No?

Kinky sex swing or gently rocking dreamboat?

Burned out from working all weekend. See you dudes tomorrow.

Happy President’s Day!

My Bedroom Makes Me Tired, and Not In a Good Way

I’m super sick of our bedroom. I’ve redecorated most of the rooms in our house at least 10 times over, but the master bedroom has this behemoth of a headboard that makes the space impossible to revamp with minor changes, so I just keep putting it off. I justify my laziness (and frugality) by reminding myself that we want to move, that if I do anything wacky in there I will have to redo it for sale, and that it’s just too much trouble to sell all the furniture in there and totally redecorate only to find my new goodies won’t work in another house.

Well, first of all I’m beginning to think we’re never going to move. For sure we will lose our shirts if we sell our current modest mid century ranch in this economic climate, and for seconds we can’t even find another place we want to live. Well, not one that we can afford, anyway.

So maybe I should stop stalling and just dewit?

Well, if I do I want this bed. And that wall color. What do you think? Too predictable? Part of me would love an antique pencil post bed or a very simple art deco burlwood semicircular headboard, but dizamn they are hard to find in king size. And you know I would rip out an eye tooth (preferably not mine) for this bed in a king:

Honestly, it’s hard to find ANY awesome bed in a king size. It’s almost enough to make me scale back to a queen. Almost.

I would actually prefer to go sans headboard, but I have two windows behind the bed and I’m thinking about doing an entire curtain wall, so a proper headboard that’s actually attached to the bed is a must. I don’t want to wake up with my head jacked up to the wall, eating curtains. Curtain munching.

Although, at least curtains are soft. If I had this magic mountain wall behind the bed, I might get rock burn when, uh… you know. I do like that bed, though.

Commune Design

Whatever I do, I think it needs to be low and lean because we have a giant hideous fan over our bed, and I would prefer not to draw attention to it. Imagine if those antlers were spinning around like a giant horny wheel of death, and then imagine how bad that would look framed by a canopy bed. Bad. But we live in Texas and it’s very hot and I’m not getting rid of our ugly fan. I would like for someone to give me that bed, though. Also the bedspread, if you please.

Rees Roberts

Did I mention how hard it is to find a cool king size bed for cheap? I suppose we could always just get something sleekly generic like this, and then do a weirdo wall treatment behind it. I could get rid of the curtains and do simple roman shades. Then I might go crazy and wood panel the wall, or wallpaper it, or… something.

Shoot Factory

I do know I would not be mad about living in this room. Look at it! It has shiny wallpaper and dark ceilings and an awesome fireplace, and there are golden balls everywhere.

And the best part is that when it’s bow chickka bowww bowm time, you shut out the peeping toms with a very high class antique screen. Then you can turn on the mood lighting and crank the Barry White down low, which would be super easy since the lights and stereo are there in bed with you.

Damn, I hope that sexy bed comes in a king.
