Bedroom Makeover

April 18, 2011
I have this favorite little restaurant over in Palm Beach. The decor is very Breakfast at Tiffanys, with aqua walls and black and white paintings. I tried a few years ago to translate that over to bedroom decor.


But something got lost in translation and it just didn't turn out right. I had the black and white, and the aqua walls, but the room always felt dark to me. I want my bedroom to be a relaxing place. Light, airy and I just wasn't getting that with all the black. I decided it was time for a change. To get the light and airy feeling I swapped the dark curtains and bedspread for white. Then I added some accent pillows to tie in the tan ceiling and the aqua walls. The overall effect is much more relaxing.






Dan and I are in disagreement about the wall behind the bed. He wants to leave the black and white painting there. To me, the painting is cold and impersonal. It's beautiful, but its a bare tree standing in fog and snow. Great for the winter, but it's now spring and summer is on the way. I bought a groupon for a large photo canvas and I would like to hang one of these pictures there:
first kiss as husband and wife
the ocean outside our hotel room at the Cheeca


Any opinions? What do you all think?
