Color Inspiration

I know I don't usually post on Tuesdays (didn't I say that on Thursday?), but I wanted to share something.  We've been talking about a mini master bedroom re-do.  

When we first moved in, we threw up the curtains and the bedspread that we had in our second house.  We were too busy putting down hardwood floors, painting and cleaning up the yard to think about the master bedroom.  

Now, we're ready for a few small changes.  I keep thinking about colors, and looking at bedroom makeovers online for inspiration.  It was hard to get a good shot of the wall color, but I tried:
This wall color is a beige with a hint of gold in it.

The shopping possibilities are endless, so it's been hard to choose new bedding.  We looked online, and went to a few stores.  I decided to go with this color for a bedspread:
This color is a nice, smoky blue.

Today, we found a bed skirt that we liked:
I love the texture here.  I know it's wrinkly; it's just out of the package.

I am still looking for curtains.  We are working on this a little at a time, to make it more affordable.  Have you seen how much bedding costs? Sheesh!  Do you ever work on decorating or DIY projects just a little at a time, to spread out the expense?

We'll be sure to show you some before and after pictures.  Don't forget to come back tonight for our next Wicked Awesome Wednesday link party!

I work at the department store with the big red star that rhymes with spacey's, and the past couple days I've been working in the home department so yeah, I do know how much bedding is. It's pretty ridiculous.

But I really like the bedding you've picked out. The color is really pretty. Good luck picking a wall color, it's all part of the fun!

Love the hem stitch bed skirt and the smokey blue quilt - and yes I am forever staggering out craft projects due to that nasty budget word.
Thanks

Kelly G, I did go to look at overstock.com, but I got *so* overwhelmed with all the choices! I just couldn't get through all of the bedding and find what I wanted. I couldn't even figure out how to look for just the colors I wanted, but I don't know if it does that. Maybe I need to try again sometime.

I would go with white curtains. You can't go wrong.

I love the teal fabrics you've already chosen. Since you have solid colors with good texture, you could bring in some large or small prints on pillows, headboard, lampshades, or other accessories. That way, when you want to change the look, you don't have to change the expensive things.

I like to do things in one fell swoop, so I might collect things until I'm ready to pull it all together, then bring everything in at once. Just like on T.V!
