Blue and White : Part I

(Master Bedroom, Stage I,  Again.)

Last fall, when I thought our master bedroom would become this haven

of soft gray and white,

I was surprised I didn’t love it.

(Master Bedroom, Stage I, Then)

And so I talked it to death

and tried to come up with a solution ,

until one day I returned to what I really like.


I grabbed these small throw pillows I had,

in a Ralph Lauren fabric I love,

and I gave in to it.

This is who I am and what I love.

I love blue and white, and chinoiserie,
and white.

Because this Ralph Lauren pattern is dated,

I ordered the shams and the bed skirt on Ebay.

When I look at it, in its early stage again,

my shoulders start to relax.

I love it.

Stage II?

something brass

something sparkly

I like it...a lot. I just can't seem to come to grips with my room. I am changing out the comforter every 3 months and longing for the one I had 10 years ago that I can't seem to find in the stacks of comforters from the past. Just can't seem to get it right, visually. As far as comfort, they're all good!

Stay true to yourself and you'll always smile:) I changed everything in my kitchen and den from my favorited red and yellow and I keep going back to those colors. Too late to change and I do love my new look. Just think I've got to do a red my next house:)

Sometimes the room wants what the room wants (doncha just hate bossy rooms?)and sometimes some people (me) just can't live in all white. Some people (me) need a little color and a whole lotta sparkle.
Trust me when I say this...both stages are gorgeous. You just have to pick the one you can sing on.

Whenever we glance at the concise explaination the word appreciate, not only in terms of a captivating marriage with a further, however as a sensation that is certainly engendered when you have miltchmonkey a much better partnership with yourself far too * as well as like a sense of better unity with the fam or humanity ( space ) it then develops into much more really clear that any person wants to have is certainly really like.
