Jeremy & I can’t decide.
Let me start over.
We sold our guest bedroom furniture. (You can read all about how that furniture didn’t fit here). And we moved our existing master bed into the guest bedroom. You saw that in the messy house tour. The master space was overwhelmingly brown. Brown bed. Brown sidetables. Brown dresser. Brown…brown…brown. And then we went on vacation and slept in a king sized bed.
We were like two people wandering through the jungle thinking that everything was fine. Sleepin in that king was like the dart in our necks. We woke up tied to a branch hangin over a blazin fire. Not really. I am being dramatic. for effect. We just realized that something was wrong with our situation. It was our dinky little queen sized bed at home. Suddenly it seemed smaller than Lea Michele on Glee.
So when we got home, we decided we were definitely gonna “pop to the full-sized” (as Gaylord Focker said)…and we immediately went mattress shopping. Here’s our little bed-tester in action at our local mattress clearance center:
Innie cute? Even with the bad iPhone photos, he’s adorable 🙂
Now we have a bed-frame in the works (more on that later) and our bed on the floor. AND NO BEDDING. To solve this temporary problem, we layered queen sized sheets over both sides and then blankets and then comforters. In order for us to find each other in bed, it takes night vision goggles, sonar and a whole heap of breadcrumbs. Talk about foreplay 🙂
So we’ve been thinking…we need bedding. real bedding. grown up bedding. We’re grown. We can handle it. But we have vastly different tastes. Jeremy wants something with stripes or manliness…I told him that we already have THREE comforters or duvets with stripes…and DANG IT I WILL GET A FLORAL IF IT’s THE LAST DECORATING DECISION I EVER MAKE. And then my head went in circles excercist style. Needless to say, narrowing it down to the option for us is literally like asking a child what fingers they want to keep. As in…JEREMY & I CAN”T DECIDE.
We finally came up with a compromise. It’s a Pottery Barn duvet that comes in red or blue. It’s floral but it’s simple enough to please the boyfriend. Using their bed-designer tool, I created two similar but different looks for our future master bedroom. Wanna see? Ok. ok. keep your panties on. I’m talkin to you mom. heehee. Ok. I will let you see it but only under one condition…YOU HAVE TO VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE.
Obviously, we changed the bed to white (because our new bed is going to be white) and we changed the background to show the drapes that currently hang behind our master bed. I have listed the pros & cons of both so that you can see our thought process. And we added the red coverlet/shams & blue velvet blanket/shams because we will probably just spring for the complete look. HELP!
