Old houses are a big pain in the ass. They are beautiful and have so much unique character and detail – stuff I love – but when it comes to improving said old house, they are a pain in the ass. Especially for people like us who aren’t handy.
The thing about old houses is that you have to get creative about how you find or create storage and then, on top of that, you may have to work in an oddly configured space.
That’s exactly what is happening with us when it comes to adding doors to our master bedroom closet.
…or how I basically ripped off an idea from Domino to decorate this bedroom.
Way back when I was envisioning a house I didn’t have and spending an incredible amount of time on Pinterest decorating said house, I didn’t quite have an idea of what I wanted for my imaginary future master bedroom. I figured it would be bright and airy, with a lot of white and natural light. But then I saw a photo on Pinterest of a bedroom with dark blue walls, a brown wooden headboard and white comforter. The design of the room was spare, which I liked, and I was struck by the blue. There was a masculine air to it, but yet I felt like it could be my room. So I pinned that picture and then, over a few months, pinned a couple more photos of bedrooms with dark blue walls, wooden headboards and white comforters. I went from having a vague idea to having a very specific one quite quickly.
