Beige Is The Rage

On Saturday while the girls were at their Japanese class with Mr. T, I decided to do something about the bedroom walls. Ever since I painted the walls blue, I felt like something was not quite right. Now that I have the walls this nice khaki color (Farrow & Ball, Joa's White) it seems so obvious that a more neutral color was the way to go. 

I decided against a bright white because I thought it would be warmer with the khaki. Plus, I like the contrast between the bright white trim and the walls. The yellow Roman shades I made also look much better with the new color.

SOOOOO glad I made the effort to make the change. I feel so much more relaxed in here now. It's like I breath a sigh of relief every time I walk in here. Isn't that funny how the color of a room can have such an effect on you? Now I'm motivated to get going on decorating the rest of the room.

Almost as soon as the paint was dry, Mr. T and I started searching for a dresser. That's our Craigslist find pictured up above. A nice authentic mid-century piece and much cheaper than anything new we looked at. I'm thinking about making some kind of cool 60s inspired wall sculpture out of wood to go above it.
