I have too many unfinished blog posts coz I need to take the time to sit and finish writing them (the paint color I used, reveal pictures, and some last bit tips or how tos). So I give you my room <3

We bought 2 Ikea PAX wardrobes for each side of the bed due to tiny closet issues. We also used 2 Ikea bookshelves as night stands that face the bed. We love to read so its a nice little niche for a few books, water, phones etc.

The Decor:
The three tin decorative art pieces above the bed were a wedding gift, the pillow a Birthday gift, sea foam green pillow cases bought at Michaels on clearance for $2 for the two, and dried Peonies from my garden last spring (I am totally kicking myself for throwing them away this spring because i could not get any this year to dry as beautifully as these did).

Things I'd like to change:
  • Wall color, I hate baby blue, but love aqua, turquoise, sea foam green, sea glass, etc. yes, Im very picky.
  • Headboard? Or would that look too stuffy with the gi-normous wardrobes and bookshelves/nightstands? It just looks kind of off with those 3 pieces, maybe they are too small? but I love them in this room. Ideas?
  • Carpet, its gross. New carpet or put in hardwood floors?

I love our aqua bedroom, it is Behr Aqua Smoke and I have painted it in two houses so far! I would definitely put in hardwoods, carpet is full of dust and dirt no matter how much you vacuum. You room is lovely!

I think a dramatic tufted fabric headboard would be fabulous between the armoires! I'd make it tall - like up to the bottom of the at=rt - then just scoot the art up to fill the space above. I think it would make the whole thing look like it's one large wall piece. I'd probably do the headboard in a print of some sort (I wouldn't use stripes b/c they would be a pain to try to keep straight).

For the walls, I like the color of the pillowcases, but if you want to go lighter than that, I think either light aqua or sea glass would look great.

The nightstand/bookshelves...I'm not sure. Maybe put one shelf on the side of the armoire to set stuff on so it's not as crowded? I think they look ok as is though.

You know I like hardwood (or laminate) much better than carpet =)
