Have I bored you all to death with dribs and drabs of my master bedroom plan? I'm sorry. I guess I have a one track mind sometimes.
So if you don't mind indulging me (tm Kelly B. of RHofNYC - I'll rully rully miss you already!) for just a little while longer, I could use some assistance.
I've got the chair decision out of the way. The big frame for over the mantle is in progress of being painted. The left nightstand remains bare but will get painted on the next free weekend. The prints Ive been yammering on about are just about a done deal. And I'm just waiting for a little Internet coupon magic before I order those lamps.
So what's left? It all boils down to my inability to mix and match patterns. Its not an easy job but someone has to do it. Can you help me find a rug and throw pillows? I'm at a total loss here.
My current front runner is the ever cushy underfoot, goes with everything, cream rug. It works for Nicole of Making it Lovely, doesn't it?
I heart my damask bedding so I don't think a rug with too bold a pattern would work. I want to create a serene and restful space here. No black and white zig zags or oriental mish mashes will do. At the same time, I'm sure I'll have the rug longer than the bedding so I want it to be workable with whatever comes next. Ideas? (Note to anyone new here: I'm pretty cheap but feel free to lay on some expensive items and I'll search for the dollar store knockoffs on my own time. )
And then the big question of throw pillows. Do I really want to buy items that I'm just going to throw off the bed before I sleep on it? Keep in mind, Mr. L and I are really the only people who come in here. (Us and the cat of course - he is very much in favor of pillows!) But I do think it needs a little something to break up the damask. Where do you stand on the issue? Are you pro or anti bedroom throw?
And because it literally pains me to do a post without photos, I'm going to show you some more decor porn from the master of fabric mix and match, Sarah Richardson. The woman has an eye!
I think its safe to say Sarah comes down strongly on the pro side of the throw pillow debate. How do you feel?
