10 Bedroom Decorating Ideas

Image
SN and I have been trying to decide how to decorate our bedroom for a while. We've browsed through interior design photos and discussed bedroom decorating ideas for the last 4 years. It's a hard decision! We had actually (finally!) agreed on painting our entire bedroom, including the doors and ceiling, Sherwin Williams Naval, which is an extremely dark, sophisticated blue. Our thinking is that a bedroom should be as calming and cozy as possible in order to sleep better. What better way to achieve that than by enveloping every surface in a rich, deep blue? We loved this bedroom decorating idea. We loved it too much. Recently, we painted every wall of our guest bathroom Sherwin Williams Naval. It looks amazing (really, check out our bathroom before and after photos ), but we think it would be boring to do the exact same thing in our master bedroom. So, it's back to the drawing board. I complain, but let's face it - browsing through photos of beautiful bedrooms is fun!  In

Unique Bathroom Ideas with Paint and Wallpaper

When we designed our custom dream home, it was important to us that this not be just another cookie-cutter, builder-boring house. Well, no worries - this house is wild and unique!  But also tasteful and elegant...I think. I hope. We have 3 bathrooms and each has a one-of-a-kind style. The most bold of all is our guest bathroom, which features a vaulted ceiling so tall that visitors tend to look up and say 'WOW!' when they enter.  Sometimes they laugh. I prefer the wows. Unique Bathroom: Before Photos No, our red brick isn't going anywhere. Over the years, our bathroom decor has become rustic with a little bling mixed in. It turns out that a clawfoot tub and cowhide rug pair beautifully together. This style is perfect for a mountain home in the Southwest. The dogs are not allowed in here. Biscuit is a rebel. Our guest bathroom was okay, but the high ceilings left a lot of blank space. We've also had difficulty making the room feel light and bright, despite a wall with 4

2021 Summit County Parade of Homes

Hey there, my bloggy friends. SN and I recently spent a fun weekend in Colorado. The highlight of our trip was gawking at astonishing dream homes in Breckenridge and Silverthorne. That's right, it's time for our favorite annual interior design event, the  2021 Summit County Parade of Homes . You can still catch the last weekend of the parade. Homes will be open September 25 and 26, 2021. Tickets are $20 each and include a copy of Mountain Living magazine (only the current issue, not a subscription like in previous years - phooey). We were hesitant about attending because only 6 homes are included this year, but they were so over-the-top phenomenal that we felt we received a good value. One home in Breckenridge even included wine and cheese, along with an assortment of other goodies. Conveniently, the 3 homes in Silverthorne are located close to each other, as are the 3 in Breckenridge. This made for a speedy parade - we arrived at the first home at 10 am and were back in Salida
