I do have a slight problem with the interior though. These walls are huge! Between the high ceilings and long walls, I have NO idea what to put on them. Above the mantel, behind the couch, everything I've previously had on my walls gets lost. It's like a bunch of shrinky dinks. I've somewhat given up on the living room. While there is not a think on the wall, it looks ok. The beautiful woodgrain brown paint compensates for the lack of décor (I hope!) If you have any suggestions on prints, shelves, ideas, etc of what to put on the walls I would appreciate it! And I've tried grouping things together. Still doesn't work.
So I have decided to tackle the master bedroom. One smaller room with less wall space. I am trying to pick out bedding then pick paint around it. I have a HUGE commitment issue with bedding and purses but we are talking about the house right now. I have not bought bedding since we've been married. I am now using the duvet cover we had in our guest room when we got married.
The problem I have is everything I like looks like it should belong in Amelia and Annie's room or a dorm room. When I think I will start looking for grownup patterns they all look like grandparent bedding. Since I have such commitment issues I want something timeless that I can keep for at least the next 7 years. There are a lot of duvet covers that catch my eye, but I would probably be sick of it next year.
I keep going back to this Lilly Pulitzer set.
Is it too high school? I feel like I love it, but do I? There is a small chance that I may just love it because it is Lilly and how perfect would everyday end sleeping in such precious bedding?! I think it is so clean and crisp. It is bright but not something I would hate in winter. I think I would paint the walls greenish?
Do you have any suggestions on bedding websites? I feel like I have hit them all.
