Almost Perfect Sunny Bedroom
We bought our house in 2001 and I am just now *almost* happy with our bedroom. I love the color and the drapes and all of the furniture. Except I'm still not sure about the duvet cover I have and I think I'd like to have the chair reupholstered as the current mustard yellow doesn't seem to work with the more sunny yellow walls.
I didn't make anything at all but I did scour antique stores and estate sales for much of the furniture. The chest of drawers was from an estate auction.
I love the sunny windows and our view but I can not stand being burned in the eye with rays of sunshine in the early morning hours. This was the main decorating problem I encountered with the room. I initially wanted light, airy white curtains to let in light but it just didn't work to block out the morning sun. This left me with selecting a darker color for the drapery but then to balance it out I wanted a lighter color for the walls. This is what led me to the dark wine and yellow.
I'm stuck on the duvet cover. I can't do yellow and I can't do the wine red. What color can I use? I found this current one that had touches of both colors but I just don't think it suits the room. I'd love to hear any thoughts.
