Do you ever have a room you just can’t get right? For me, it has been our bedroom which is a really wonderful space, but somehow it has never come together. I’ve tried different colors on the walls, changed bed coverings, rearranged the art and always there’s something not quite right.
Here I had in mind a crisp gray and white room, but when the Venetian plaster was done, the walls were not as gray as I envisioned. The white bed set is nice but, again, the look left something to be desired, and adding the red pillows from a past color scheme didn’t help. When all is said and done, the room strikes me as cold, and I like a friendly, comfortable bedroom. In addition to the colors not working, there is another problem. Do you see it?
And what about a soft, sheer curtain, just enough to soften the starkness of the window. Maybe I could live with that. OK so far, but once I honed in on the changes, there was another problem. The painting over the bed is totally out of place so I went shopping in the house and found another piece of art which works surprisingly well.
The real test comes when the hubby walks in. He’s used to my changing things around and usually just shakes his head, but this time he said, “Hey, you know this really looks good.”
Sometimes a little tweak here and there makes a big difference.
