I'm a bit of a nerd.
I thought I would share with you what I have planned so far. Here's the room layout planned so far. The room is 12x12. We wanted it relatively small because the rest of the space is the bathroom and walk in closet! You know.... the important stuff.

Mainly I've picked a wall colour and everything else is already decided. But colour is very important!
|Colour: Bedford blue|
It's hard to decorate when both spouses think the other has terrible taste. In all things except spouses, of course.
My inspiration for the blue is due to two pictures we have that I want to decorate around. One is a beautiful painting by Wilf Perreault a Regina artist who was friends with my mother. I inherited it when Mom died (read: I took it and my siblings can suck it!) and I love having it in my bedroom.
Here it is in our last master bedroom over The Guy's grandpa's rocking chair. It was my favourite corner.
I loved the blue in this room, but wanted something a little more cornflower than grey this time.
I wish I could show you the furniture we bought, but it's currently in storage. That will be for the big reveal, I guess. It's a king sized sleigh bed in a dark brown with a matching dresser and two side tables. I love it. Can I find it on the internet at all so I can show you? No. Of course not.
My plan is for the room to be calming, inviting, and a good balance of masculine and feminine. The baseboards and things will be white (like in the above picture) and the floor is a gorgeous laminate The Guy bought from Costco on sale. It is also in storage. Someday I will get pictures of that too.
My favourite find of the day is the rug. I love this rug. Next is to convince The Guy!
OOOH, and here's the light fixture!

So, now I've got the furniture, the colour, the drapes (The Guy bought those already too), the lighting, and the plan... I'm pretty excited. Now just to have the house finished.
