As we near being ready to sell our apartment and looking seriously for a new home. I am obsessing heavily over how our new bedroom will look. Drawn to both light and dark ideas, we started halfway dark here with brown grey walls, before I whited out all the rooms one Summer. I love the idea of a moody dark space with blacks, greys and metallic highlights, mannish furniture with maybe a sequin here and there! A cosy space for sleeping and reading. If we are lucky a dressing room will be a separate decorating project, then all the clutter of beauty regimes and wardrobe overspill will be far away from relaxing time.
But then I see white, light glorious white. With wood and a couple of muted colours thrown in. Clean, crisp, space creating. Although it can be butched up with natural elements and industrial accessories, lamps, pictures and all, I still feel white would end up looking more feminine.
Having had it all my own way in the apartment we share now I feel I should lean the way of the husband for our new place. What do you think?
