Do you ever start off a room redesign with an inspiration piece? I find that if I’m struggling with my options, I’ll find ONE thing that I LOVE and build upon that.

I am going to coordinate the wall color to one of the warm beigey hues in this fabric. Call me a wimp, but I just love neutral walls with color in the accents. And I think that those warm wood dressers will look MUCH better with warmer walls. My favorite color is red, so I think the raspberry in this pattern will be a softer bedroom option. And red is the color of passion, no? (good grief, I can’t believe I just said that).
