I finally managed to put one of the new doona covers on the bed this weekend. I ordered this and another online, they were on sale for $35 each... that's incredibly cheap. How can a girl resist that sort of sale?
This last pic is probably more correct colour-wise, though I guess it also will depend on your monitor.
Our bedroom has a personality disorder... dark and masculine in some parts, feminine and white in others...
And its all my fault.
Our bedroom walls are a medium blue, a really nice colour and very relaxing. The curtains are dark brown and blue, the bed and bedside tables are dark brown in a country style. They came with Wayne, and somehow seemed more suited to us as a couple than my lighter coloured timber (and lighter style) bed which is in the guest room.
I loved Wayne's chunky bed, though I'm not overly fond of the bedside tables. I also loved his dark brown bedding so I decided to go with that colour scheme: blue and brown. Its a more masculine room, but comfy and warm.
I hated the plain pine wardrobe and chests of drawers so I painted those antique white. Thus we have a room which is Wayne on one side and Zefi on the other. The bed side is all dark wood and Wayne's american indian stuff, the other side is all antique white chests and wardrobe with family photos and knicknacks.
One day I'd love a white on white bedroom but it won't be happening any time soon. I'm not up to repainting the big bed or bedsides and ain't no way we're buying new furniture right now. Its either make/recycle/revamp things we have or I find at a tip shop or live with what we have.
Frankly, given its taken me years to paint the chests of drawers and I've dragged on the wardrobe makeover for months now... its doesn't look promising.
So I make do with small changes, like a new doona cover.
