It’s been almost 3 weeks since I moved to the house in Hooterville and for the past few days, I have been struggling with bouts of homesickness. However, that’s not really what this post’s title is referring to.
One of the things I am finding as I unpack and try to decorate the house in Hooterville is how quick and easy some rooms are coming together and how difficult others are.
I realize it is going to take time for me to get a feel for how we live in this house, what works and what doesn’t, but one of the rooms I am really struggling with is the master bedroom.
Long story short… unfortunately, the only wall the bed will fit on is a window wall. I hate the fact that by the time the headboard is added, the whole lower half of the window is covered so, in an effort to minimize having the sunlight and view blocked by a solid headboard, I bought a vintage-looking metal headboard. I wanted a white one but the price was really right on this particular headboard and it only came in antique brass or pewter (gray).
I picked the pewter but I had every intention of painting it white. Well, that was until I actually saw it in the room. Now, I’m not so sure.
The headboard is the same exact width as the window so if I paint it white, it is going to blend in with the shutters. I can’t decide if that is a good thing…or a bad thing.
I know it’s looking
a little very boring right now but hopefully, that will all change as the room progresses. Ultimately, when all is said and done, I would like this room to have a coastal cottage feel. Light, airy and bright. I plan to use some shells and beachy artwork. I’m also thinking about introducing a few touches of lime green to add a bit of pizzazz and interest to all the aqua and white.
Based on what I think I want this room to be when it’s done, does anyone have opinions about painting (or not painting) the headboard, or any other decorating suggestions?
Meanwhile, I’ve also been working on the “pink and girly” guest room. That room has been so much fun and extremely easy for me to pull together. No struggles there so it’s almost done!
The reveal will be coming soon!
