While I am still 100% in love with the Paris prints I ordered from Etsy, I am re-thinking these prints for the bedroom. I truely believe that the bedroom should be a sanctuary that prepares you for sleep – keep TV to a minimal, maintain soft colors etc. While these prints are not “loud” and I am not shrouding the room in red, I worry that these pops of bright color will derail the soothing vibe I want to keep.
I mentioned before that the rest of the house stays within taupes, tans, greys, and blues… and one of my favorite photographers (in fact the very one who snapped the “red” portraits of Paris) has added to her gallery, and there are some dreamy photos with blue’s and soft colors, soft focus lenses, and its all dreamy loveliness. So pretty. I think they are keepers, and I think my bedroom vision is about to change!
Speaking of Paris… city of lights… Kris and I watched Midnight in Paris this weekend. While I enjoyed it, I wasn’t in love with the plot, however, it made me want to go to Paris so bad, it hurts! Kris and I have been talking about planning our vacation this year, and I think Paris just flew to the top of the list.
I’ve only been there once, and it was in the dead of winter. I brought my warmest coat, but being from California, I clearly had no idea what to expect. It was bone chillingly cold – the coldest wind you can imagine! Dark gray skies… very moody. At the time, I was backpacking through Europe with my best friend Kira, and despite our strict budget, we ended up ducking into lot’s of overpriced cafe’s to warm up.
Our trip through Paris is actually pretty laughable, but it’s another story for another time.
Now, to start work on a new vision for our bedroom!
