What is the point of having two separate areas of books in one small house, one set of bookshelves in the office (appropriate location) and the other set in the dining room (less appropriate place)? That is the question driving one of our top projects planned for 2017: creating one full wall unit of books that will include a desk in the office.
…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.
