A Red and Green Bedroom for Christmas (Yes, green carpeting...)
I want one of these throws in every room of the house. EVERY room.
Check out the plush back -- SO soft!
4. See that sunlight over in the corner (below)? That is "like" #4. This bedroom has little french doors that open onto balconies.
I can't wait until spring when they are open ALL the time. For now, they are sealed shut for winter, but frame the bed visually quite nicely.
5. THE SPACE. This bedroom is huge. In fact, it is far larger than we need, so I am thinking of ways to properly utilize the space. A kid's bed for when they get scared at night? A sewing table? Desk for writing? Planting station for those balconies?
The sheets are from the Martha Stewart Collection at Macy's and are called 'Aracdia Stripe'. The adorable pine pattern pillowcase is called 'Pine Branch'. They are currently on sale and have a 15% discount on them, so now is the time to jump on that price! If you have purchased flannel sheets before, you know that sometimes they can be scratchy before they are washed. By the time you wash them enough to get them soft, they start to get "pilly". Not so with these luxury sheets. Soft out of the package and super soft after the first wash. They warm up the bed all winter long and serve as a beautiful base for more colorful linens on top of the bed.
The carpet will stay for awhile and perhaps a rug with greens, whites and other neutrals will break up the sea of forest floor. The windows already have new bamboo blinds that will go up shortly and there are many choices about how the room functions and what furniture will be needed to meet those functions. Stay tuned!
