I am suuuuper excited about these new curtains for the bedroom, but you only get a sneak peak. They are an icy blue with a shimmery gold pattern. I got them at a curtain outlet/warehouse near me for $19 a panel. I don't think that's too bad, especially since they are perfect for the room. Remember i wanted to lean more to the blue gray, but still had to work with the golds in the carpet. I have seen this exact pattern as a shower curtain in Homegoods if you love it and want it.
These prompted a whole shopping expidition, of course, where i proceeded to buy numerous different duvet covers. I had an icy blue, but they were too blue next to the curtains. A gray was too dark. Should i go champagne colored? Still not sure. I bought and returned, bought and returned.
Two things that were not going to be returned were these lamps. I love them, and i was determined to use them. They have a silvery base with a gold crinkly overlay on top, again, perfect. I was afraid i'd have to do brass or gold, which doesn't fit the rest of the house, or the clear glass bases that are lovely, but aren't really me. These were only 30 bucks each, shade included. Homegoods=Love.
On no, they are not tall enough. Blast. I'll google those clear display risers that the stores use, because these must work in this room. I can no longer stand the Eiffel Tower and the 80s touch lamp! But blogging again has come to the rescue. Books! People using books as decor. I use books as decor, so why not to raise up my perfect new lamps?
Jackets on didn't work, so i took them off. But this was still too busy for me, so i turned them around! Blogging helps again! Hehe, Hooray for Yiddish kills me every time!
His side. I like that the color on that one book is different, i don't think i am going to change it. Is it quirky? An eyesore? Alluding to a deeper meaning that books, like snowflakes, and fingerprints, are all different? Am i hereby certifiable? Don't answer that.
Illuminated and better picture of the base. Really like the texture the shade brings in, too. Can't wait to get some color on those walls (but what?!) and furniture that is my style, ie, not 80's cream and gold!
Now go decorate with books and tell me how you did it.
