I was kept busy for several days staging the main house for showing. I had to re-decorate around the front door that is orange on the inside. Quite a few of my stored pieces were put into service, as my daughter and SIL hadn't gotten around to changing out their previous blue, gray and red color scheme. They're a lot more relaxed about things like that than I am and were waiting for a rug they liked to go on sale. I may have mentioned that they tease me about being obsessive-compulsive when it comes to decorating, which may or may not be true, but with the house about to go on the market, they were more than willing to turn me loose inside their home.
Here are a couple of directions I'm going with ideas for a new bedroom. I love the colors in the first bedspread, but perhaps the pattern is a bit "little girlish" for a 66-year-old woman. I want the room to look modern but not boho/trendy, which will be on the way out soon enough, if it isn't already.
I also love the serene, more sophisticated look of the neutrals. And maybe serene is what a bedroom is supposed to be. My kitchen plans don't include a lot of bright color, so I wonder if that is heralding a toning down of my surroundings. I wonder, too, if I'd quickly get bored.
Be honest. Which do you like better?
Maybe some pops of color would keep me from tiring of the neutrals. But then am I right back to a colorful bedroom? More things to ponder at 2 a.m. Alas, it's sounding more and more like OCD.
