We stripped the old (fabric) wallpaper down and I was enchanted with the texture of the wood walls. No sheetrock in this house! The walls were white-washed and then brushed over with a robin's egg blue.
We went a little crazy from there and installed tin ceiling tiles ..and of course, a chandelier. The result is pretty, but quite 'country chic.' Which is to say, maybe I designed this room BEFORE I had fully developed a good sense of my own design aesthetic. Don't get me wrong, I like it, but I want to make it a little more modern.
Unfortunately, the furniture which was painted white, has yellowed to a cream color as a result of it's polyurethane coating. This doesn't help the situation much, but I'm not currently willing to paint it AGAIN.
What I can change, and where you can help is with my duvet cover. These are some of the covers that I have liked so far in my search.
Yellow-striped. I love it, but will it go with the cream furniture in the room?
And this one, my favorite, but it only comes in Queen. :( Maybe I could do something with just the shams?
Do you know of any others?? Which is your favorite?
