The house is coming along..still lots to do but the end of the tunnel is almost in view!! In the meantime I got busy buying furniture! I have been eyeing....drooling over actually, a piece of Stanley Brand "Coastal Living" collection furniture to be exact. Made in America!! Unfortunately, that means mucho dinero!! So, I was thrilled to see the floor model on sale and then another price cut!! That baby was mine!!! Its a TV Deck Armour that is painted and the top had louvered doors...love it!! Its painted a blueish/greenish color...with the louvered doors and that color I fell in love with all its beachyness!!
I was on a furniture buying roll!!Things were on sale since it was the end of the Memorial Weekend. The next day I bought our bedroom dresser....its in white and has 11 drawers and the handles match the handles on the TV Deck/chest.
I am thinking of doing this: TV Deck/chest in the blueish/greenish color, Bed headboard in white, dresser in white and nightstands with the blueish/greenish color and louvered top cabinet (Stanley, Coastal Living).
I want to have the walls done in Board and Batten and painted white. Wondering what color to paint the upper walls?? A blueish/greenish color? How about a caramelish (I know..that is not a word!)brown color? Any other ideas?? What do you think of those colors???
I'd love any advice or ideas!!! I want to turn our plain, no architectural features bedroom into a beachy, relaxing retreat!
