Re-decorating Time




We have had plans for nearly 10 years to completely redecorate our bedroom.  We plan to take a wall down and make the room nearly twice as big, doing away with the computer/exercise room.  The problem is, I never could decide how I wanted to decorate the room.  I had two or three plans that I would go back and forth between.  As time has gone by, the house is taking on a theme.  A simple Scandinavian style.  Lots of white, with splashes of color as accents.  I like it, it suits this old simple house well.  Low ceilings, exposed beams, wooden floors and cedar woodwork.   I have opted for an all white bedroom, white walls, white floor but will keep our cherry furniture, although there are days I think I might like to paint it too, but I know Emery would protest since its such beautiful wood.  Last year I purchased a white duvet cover with a simple blue embroidery border around it.  That will work perfectly with the Dala Horse Fabric I purchased for valances for our windows.  Hung over white lace drapes from Ikea.  I suspect from time to time I might like to add a few more splashes of color so made some bright yellow pillow cases with blue trim and am working on some tiny blue polka dot pillowcases with white trim that I am embroidering with Dala Horses in the same blues and yellow as the fabric that I am making the valances out of.   In time I will make a crocheted throw for the bed with the same color scheme.  Something simple, mostly white.   We are not going to start the construction part of the room until fall time.  Just too hot right now to think about major renovations.  But, I sure am  having fun doing some sewing in preparation for when its done.
