Our bedroom hadn't been decorated for nearly 10 years, was a very bright pink and certainly needed updating. Poor Dan has lived in a pink bedroom for nearly 4 years!
We decided on a green colour scheme with cream accents. The carpet and curtains are beautiful and look lovely against the green walls. We replaced our bed (thank goodness!) and added a beautiful antique mirror and found a new chair at a local vintage shop.
We decided to store a lot of the things from our shelves, keeping out only our DVD collection (far too important to put away!) and a few books that we hadn't yet read/finished, making our shelves free for photographs and keepsakes.
Our bedroom is now so peaceful and tranquil, far from the busy and vibrant state it was in before. It took weeks but was well worth it :)
