so if you’ve been following along here, and over on twitter, you may have heard my plea for design guidance, and reassurance about painting the wall behind my bed black, or charcoal gray. well, i went and did it – i painted it benjamin moore’s gravel gray (note: it is showing up a bit darker, and bluer in these photos than it actually is) and i quite love it. the room still feels soothing and restful to me, but now it feels almost like a giant headboard, or a focal point for the room.
i’m not sure everyone will love it, but it’s only paint, so should i tire of it – on will go a new coat of color. all i have to lose is the room might start to shrink! i’ve also added these ornate gold-gilded sconces i found on my last flea market trip – i like the dramatic effect and the way they compliment the dwellstudio chinoiserie bedding. i do think i need a new, large and more contemporary photograph up in place of this print so i’m on the hunt – something like this, or this, or maybe even this (or this see below – i need your opinion!).
okay, i need your honest opinion – do you love or just really hate the idea of this gilded shoes print (below) framed over the bed in place of the print? so curious if i’ve gone off my rocker…do tell!
