I have spent a great deal of time thinking about what I want to do with our new bedroom.
The first step is figuring out what colour scheme to go with.
I figured the easiest way to figure out what colour scheme to go with would be to shop for a comforter first. If I find one that I really love, I can pull out background colours in the comforter for the walls of the room.
The problem? The more I look, the more confused I get!
I have looked at a million Burgundy Comforters in many patterns.
I've bookmarked about a dozen of them, but I just can't push that "Add To Cart" button.
Why? Well, one big issue I have is that I don't want the same pattern as the comforter on all of the accompanying pillows. Why can't I mix and match on Overstock.com? If I could, I would have bought one by now and be one step closer to doing our room!
I would LOVE a Burgundy Paisley Comforter. And they have a few of them. But I think I would like to go with Burgundy PLAID pillowcases instead. I'm a freak for texture when it comes to decor. If I'm gonna do it, I want it totally done up!
But I suppose I'm jumping the gun anyway. There is just so much going on these next few weeks. Tomorrow is Hubby's benefit which out to be a lot of fun. But still, I know I will need to bring tissue!
Marty and Kim said they are doing this benefit not to raise money to pay bills - they want to see the money used for something we wouldn't do normally. To fulfill a dream.
Hubby and I were talking this week about doing the back yard as well. We have been talking for years about buying one of those pavilion tents and some yard furniture. Hubby LOVES hanging out in the back yard. And I must agree that doing up the back yard would bring him much happiness. So we'll be focusing on both projects in the next few months. It will be a tight budget, but I know we can do it.
At least Hubby and I agree mostly about how we envision the back yard. Except I would probably put paver bricks beneath the tent and around the fire pit. Less mowing obstacles.
And I really wish I hadn't seen a photo of an outdoor fireplace last week. That would be SO COOL. But also SO EXPENSIVE!
Baby steps, Bren, baby steps!
