I was at Calico Corners and found this awesome black and white diamond fabric and thought it would look great as draperies in our bedroom. This meant that the original beni ourain rug concept was out (since that's just too much black on white diamond action). So, in rethinking the room I decided to go with some sort of oriental rug (currently I have a West Elm overdyed rug as a stand in on my concept board even though it's more red than I'd like). I also added in some of the bedding and pillows that I recently purchased at Target to make the board more true to life and coherent. And I put in some Pottery Barn nightstands that I think are lighter and let my chinoiserie art show through (although Scott doesn't like them from a practical storage standpoint).
The Restoration Hardware swing-arm sconces were on sale recently so I decided to purchase them and pay for them by selling my original ceramic lamps. Luckily I have a taker. I'm excited to get that one done and in place.
I'm still not totally convinced about the scheme although it's starting to come together. I think what is throwing me off is the wall color. I t's too green. So the question is do I design around the wall color or just have it repainted at some point down the line so that I can better wrap my head around the whole thing. What do you guys think? I'm sort of wanting a white room somewhere in the house? Or maybe making it more of a true grey - like a dark charcoal?
