Time to lighten up

Once I make it through the holidays and into the New Year, I'm ready to put the holiday decor away and lighten up the house a bit. It gives me hope that spring is near! I decided to start in our bedroom. Just a few simple changes really made a difference. I threw on a couple new pillows, a couple old and a cozy throw.

Still trying to decide what I want over the dresser - mirror or art. One of my favorite photos on canvas would be a fun and a personal addition. Black and white. Love that look and will lighten things up in this corner.

This cute little nightstand is on my list of spring projects. I want to paint it the same shade of white the other nightstand is.

I feel like loads of texture is key when going monochromatic.

I've had a lot of fun with light and dark paint in this house. It really compliments everything and allows objects to blend or pop. 

Love the tassles...

My next update for this room is a new rug. Maybe something with pattern. Stripes? I have a difficult time finding patterns I don't think I'll tire of.

Well that's it for today! Kelly


  1. Love the colors in this room- so peaceful. What color did you use in the walls? Thanks!

    1. Thank you! The color is Sherwin Williams Peppercorn. My dining room is painted the same. Love it.

  2. I love it but I am so nervous about painting our bedroom and adjoining sitting room such a dark color! I just got a white shag rug with a dark gray diamond pattern for under the bed. I just need to go for it with the paint. Thanks!
