Unfortunately I didn't take a pic of the master bedroom when we moved in. But I can describe it in all it's Pepto Bismal pink horrible-ness that it was...and please don't take offense if you like pink...I just happen to not like it on the wall, the floor, the bedding, etc. So, there was rose colored carpet, rose colored paint on 2 opposing walls, striped floral rose colored paint on the 2 opposite walls, and then a border of roses running around the top of the room. Yes, it was lovely. By the way, that was very sarcastic if you couldn't hear it.
When we moved in, we put cream colored carpet in, painted the walls a gold/bronze color to match the new bedspread I bought. A vast improvement, but alas I tired of it...plus Caleb hated the comforter. He said it wasn't comfy. I thought it was beautiful and romantic. Oh well. So here is a pic of what it used to look like.
And here is what it looks like now. Still very romantic...I think...but a much calmer color palette.
And as crazy as it sounds, I seriously think the room looks bigger even though the walls are such a dark color. It isn't quite as blue as this picture shows. It is a touch more gray and a little darker. Caleb loves it! And that was important to me. I think it is a bit more masculine now while still looking femine. And romantic, which was what I was going for.
So what do you think? Do you like the red and think the blue was a bad choice? I of course will agonize for days awaiting your responses. :)
