ok, i need to make a decision!
so what do i do?
i ask the opinion of my closest peeps: mom, joy, and nicole.
they know me the best – my tendencies, my design history, my general likes and dislikes.
so you know, the goldish one is stepping waaaay out of my comfort zone.
i like simple, clean in general.
i like white.
so what did they all say about the 2 beddings?
choose the gold one!
so i go for it!
after a week or so, i just…
i just didn’t love it.
and the whole reason i’m doing this is to find something i love.
now, i know i could just walk into anthro and find something that fits that requirement,
but that’s not my reality.
i live in the real world.
not in the i-can-walk-into-anthro-and-buy-anything-i-want world.
i’d like to live there, but i don’t.
my biggest problem with it is not so much the comforter itself, but everything else in the room that has to go with it.
and by “go with it” i don’t mean match, but just look good in the same room.
with such a bold print i couldn’t figure out what i’d do for the lampshades.
and i wanted to add a little something to the drapes, but it was starting to look too matchy matchy.
and the chair i bought needs to be recovered, but in what?
what print goes with that bedding without competing with it?
so i get out the white comforter.
and i cannot get the size right!
sounds silly, but i have a queen size bed, and this pic is with a queen size comforter.
look on the side – its too short.
as soon as you stick 2 (or 5) people in there, there would be no coverage on the edge.
i guess i’m picky about that stuff.
i’m still unsettled.
if i were to do this one:
i could do some funky throw on the end, or even a quilt.
i’d funk up the curtains a bunch since the bedding is so safe.
and i’d also do some funky lampshades.
and on the chair i could choose any print i want since it wouldn’t be competing with anything else.
i’d definitely do something better to the euro shams.
nicole wants me to replace some of the pics in the window above my bed with fabric, so that’s a maybe.
but then again…
