I had decided to paint the background of my built in vanity...this color is Bamboo.
The room started out white and went to a light blue that just didn't work for me.
More of the light blue that didn't work and pieces of furniture that didn't work where I had them.
Several colors on the wall....what shall I choose?
I went with Mercer Blue (Valspar Paint: Eddie Bauer). I found some window treatments at Ross that were inexpensive. I also found some nice rods and finials at Hobby Lobby that were also on sale. :)
I painted the background behind the built in shelves a chocolate brown color, the built in had doors on them and I removed them several months ago. I like the depth of the shelves w/ the dark color.
Next came tassels, I love tassels. I pulled the curtains together with a tassel for a more custom look. See the drawers in the built in vanity: I changed that color to Bungalow Gold (Valspar Paint: Eddie Bauer), this color looked much better with the curtain panels. The lamp on the bedside table was found in a hall closet, it needs some pretty books stuck underneath it for height.
Bedding was changed to the Boathouse Collection from Ralph Lauren, I waited forever for it to go on sale. I mix and match this comforter with some older Ralph floral sheets I have and some striped sheets and sometimes Ralph leopard. The green silky quilted shams and coverlet at the end of the bed help add a layered look (from Wal-Mart a couple of years ago).
