After a couple of weeks of moving furniture out, painting, installing board & batten, and moving furniture back in, we’re finally back in our bedroom. Ahhhhh!
Kevin and I slept on the couches in our living room while we worked upstairs, so MAN does it feel good to
snuggle with my sweetie have our bed back again! 😀 And speaking of our bed, I pulled out the (Pottery Barn) Clearlake quilt and shams my mom bought us several years back and I love how it pops! I tried out our (Pottery Barn) Matine Toile quilt & shams and the blanket I got from Schoolhouse Electric too…
I love that I can use both of them now!
I had some fun with Photoshop to give you an idea of where I’m headed in here over the next few months…
You’ll notice everything that makes up the “background” (walls, lighting, rug, window treatments) is neutral in tone. White, wood, and black. That way I can have lots of fun with color in the bedding and decor!
I had some questions about the lattice we used in my board & batten post, so I thought I’d include a few more close-up photos here today. The main reason we chose the lattice is because how thin it is. No, it doesn’t butt up perfectly to our existing baseboards and crown molding, but we decided the *slight* difference in depth didn’t matter. Here’s a close-up view of how it looks down at the baseboard…
…and here’s a close-up view of how it looks up by the crown molding:
We’re really thrilled with how it turned out!
Obviously the windows are still naked, but I’ve got big plans for them over the next couple of weeks. I mentioned in a previous post that I’m partnering with my absolute favorite window treatment company, SelectBlinds.com. We purchased all the shades on the windows downstairs from them over the past few years, so I’m beyond excited to be able to work with them on these windows upstairs!
