Here is the view from the doorway. The walls are a soft grey-taupe-brownish color, which is a nice contrast to our green accent wall. This picture was taken before we swapped some of the accessories.
This is the view from the bathroom. I think this corner could use more color, especially in the form of a new chair. I am smitten by a tall, dark, and curvy chair at Home Goods (it's even on clearance!) and I'm currently trying to convince hubby that it would make an excellent birthday gift (if it's still there). The curtains are burlap and I made six of them from 15 yards of fabric, which was on sale (regularly $3.99/yd, $1.60/yd with my 60% off coupon) at JoAnns. The total cost for the curtains (not including hanging hardware) was $25!
This picture has the most accurate paint color portrayal (except the pinkish spot in the middle). The blank wall in this picture will eventually become a wall of floating bookshelves. My inspiration for this wall is a combination of my grandparents' house (no pictures available), Young House Love's zippered patio seam, and my pinspiration.
I would like to find some livelier accent decorations and sew a small accent pillow for our bed or for the chair in the corner from a napkin I found on clearance at Cost Plus World Market for under $2. Eventually, we plan to swap out the floor for something dark and sleek, swap the baseboards for something more decorative, and build cabinets and a really tall armoire in the random nooks in our bedroom. We'll eventually get around to those projects! Next up on our list: the master bathroom, the master closet, and the office.
