So if the title of this blog didn’t give all things away – I painted my bedroom WHITE. Guys, this has been a dream of mine for so long. I love white, but I also love color and there is nothing worse than decorating your home when your walls are colorful. It makes things seem busy. At least, that is my opinion.
I think that if you want colorful walls, you should stick to using accents like wood, metals and white/greys. Since I like to play with color in my textiles & decor, I really needed to paint my walls white. I just feel like you’ve so much more freedom to plan with prints, textures and color. You don’t have to agree with me, but I’m seriously swooning over my new bedroom color. I feel like I’m sleeping in a designer magazine now.
If wanting to know what color I picked, I used Alibaster by Sherwin Williams
& don’t hate me, but I’m thinking of painting our side tables white and heavily distressing them. I know that is a lot of white.. but I love it and If I’ve learnt anything, it’s to do what I love and not care what anyone else wants for my home.
& I had to add since I’ve been asked 101 times about this rug. Here is the link to purchase it. It’s cheap and it is seriously good quality for that price!! There’s three colors to choose from.
I’ve always loved farmhouse decor since I was little as I grew up and my mom used a lot of antiques & vintage beat up finds in her decorating.. Once I moved out I realized that I wanted to follow the crowd ( Modern design was in at the time )… then it moved into Shabby Chic, then it moved into Mid Century…But something I realized years ago is that I always gravitate back to something beat up, chippy and unloved. It makes me feel the most at home. You can follow the crowd, but if it isn’t your jam, time will eventually tell you that & you will never be happy with your home because it isn’t ‘you’.
So, what I’m trying to say is, do what you love. Don’t bother to think what the rest of the crowd might think. Some probably don’t like that my bed has cracks and looks like it was pulled out of a barn..to me, that is perfection. It’s my favorite thing about my bedroom. If I could beat it up more, I would, but I’m too lazy to bring it downstairs.
Hope you’re having an awesome week. I just realized that tomorrow is friday and I actually don’t even know how that happened. I mean, wasn’t yesterday January 1st? Too much on the go & not enough time.
