I know you want to see my kitchen and I’ve taken pictures, but I just don’t think you’ll be able to catch my vision yet and retain any hope that one day I will be cooking in a kitchen that would make Paula Dean jealous. Let’s just say I have enough outlets to single-handedly provide power to Sear’s entire inventory of crockpots; however, the kitchen is for another day.
Today I will take you into my bedroom.
Don’t get too worked up. Love stories are only told on Mondays and today is Wednesday.
Remember that this is a work in progress. We renovate and decorate at the speed of turtles, but I’ve always heard that good things take time and if you’ve ever tried pot-roast cooked in a crockpot, you’d agree.
Most people say “Very White” or “Sterile” and I agree, but if my room were any more warm and inviting, I’d have two kids and a dog in bed with me every night. I like ‘sterile’. I’m having an adjustable hospital bed delivered next week.
Not really. FringeMan would never get any sleep, because I’d be adjusting all night.
These are some things I think are necessary for this room. Feel free to add to the list.
A Down Comforter – Frankly FringeMan would like me to sleep in something skimpier than a snowsuit.
A Head Board – I have one in mind that I’m still trying to talk FringeMan into building for me. I’m sure he’ll get around to it after finishing the kitchen, installing the chimney for the woodstove, and hanging wainscoating in the bathroom. He’s like a carpenter bee!
2 Scenic Photos framed in square black frames for above the bed. The tree of life is going in the bathroom. I fear FringeMan thinks it’s a sign to be fruitful and multiply.
A Brightly Colored Chair – Maybe something Mid Century Modern. Who am I kidding? I have no clue what I’m talking about! Maybe a bright plastic reproduction chair from Ikea.
Several Neutral Throw Pillows with a Matching Solid Quilt for the foot of the bed.
To me the plainness is calming, peaceful. My life tends to border on crazy, so I enjoy having a boring room to sleep in.
Any suggestions? What would you add?
