Yesterday, I Instagrammed a sneak peek of my new bed all made (but not ironed like the pros do 'cause, you know, I'm hugely pregnant). I have to say, I finally love it. And although I'm hot and have to do a four-point turn when I roll over, I'm finally happy in my cozy little nest.
We desperately need bedside tables. I'm thinking of doing a desk on my side and a dresser on the other side. We use all of our bedside table space. I hid the night creme, lip balm, kindle, phone charger, two water glasses and ponytail holders that usually adorn my bedside. We also need curtains because in the Fall and Winter the morning sun shines right on my pillow (real nice).
I'm also going to recover the pelmet boxes and hopefully salvage that tassel trim. I'm sort of struggling with what to do here. My gut says go with something simple like a white linen, but I'm afraid the room will look too washed out. The room is much more cream than yellow as it looks in this picture. That being said, I'm also afraid to commit to a pattern that I might get sick of. Any suggestions?
I liked the fabric the previous owners left us and tried to make it work, but it doesn't quite fit in with the theme I have going for this room. That theme being: "Magic Hour at the Beach Where Tanned WASP-y Families Take Pictures Dressed In All White And Look Generally Perfect" You know what I'm talkin' about?
This time of day at the beach.
* Yes, that's Edward's first time putting his toes in the sand. It almost hurts my heart to see this, except that he's just as cute and even more fun now.
So that's my incomplete, but more complete than ever, bedroom for y'all! I'm in full-out crazy pregnant lady nesting mode. I spend a lot of that energy playing dinosaurs, chase, let's not jump on mommy and soothing ridiculous tantrums (the other day, Edward freaked out because he couldn't "eat a banana in a tree like a monkey"). But Little Robertson's going to be here soon and then I'll be in crazy new mom snuggle mode so I need to get this stuff done. Off to nest!
Have a great day!
