the projects never cease

while brandon was in greenland, i got a little crazy with paint in our bedroom. having our friends (heath & emily) painting every room in their house & seeing the transformations they were enjoying inspired me to get on making something of our room. 

when we moved in we had a door from our bedroom to the back of the refridgerator. random! rob helped brandon remedy that situation back in february, but we hadn't done anything to make our bedroom more cozy otherwise. 

home inspection day:

end of june:


i was terrified to put such a dark color on my ceiling, fearing it would make the room seem smaller. in fact, the opposite happened. our room feels tall & luxurious. i love it! 

i also rewired the boring glass plate light with this drum light--i brag about this accomplishment to anyone that will listen. in actuality, rewiring a basic light is not as hard as anyone says. the drum light makes the room feel more finished & stands out (nicely) against the blue. 

i'm sure the colors aren't everyones cup of tea, but brandon came home to the surprise & was pleased. provided he & i like it, that is all that matters, right? we have a bit of chair rail to replace from the anti-door project, but that will have to wait until brandon gets back from this round of field work. (is this guy ever home?)

The projects never do cease when you're a home owner. But you've got so many great ideas and everything you've done so far has been spectacular!

Forget Pinterest! I'm keeping up on your blog for decorating ideas. Our house has 9 1/2 ft ceilings, all except our bedroom :0( Someone lowered it to 8 ft, badly I might add. I'm itching to pull 'er down and restore it to the original height. That dark ceiling of yours looks beautiful and now I want one in my bedroom.

Aww, thanks! I think a bedroom is the right place for it. It feels luxurious and cozy all at the same time! Good luck with raising that ceiling. Maybe playing songs that repeatedly say "raise the roof" will give your hubby the hint! :)

Very designer, Lindsey! I love the colors and the clean lines. You've got a good eye.
