Thanks for all the compliments on my paint choices thus far. I am having so much fun with putting my flat together. Everyday, it feels more and more like me.
Next I thought I would show you my bedroom and bathroom. Warning: These rooms are down-right girly. But considering I am a said girl who lives all by herself...well, why the heck not, right?
First off, the bedroom...
Yes, it is purple. Well, technically, Violet Ash from Behr. I just thought it was a pretty, sophisticated color that would be very relaxing as I fell asleep at night.
When it first went up on the wall, I freaked out a little bit. I thought I might be a little too teeny-bopper purple. That I was doomed to putting up High School Musical posters and reading Tiger Beat in bed. But as it dried and with a second coat, it changed into a darker violet color. It still is a lot of color, but put some art up on the walls, I think that will be easily rectified.
This is my cute nightstand I got from Anthropologie a few years back. I love it. It is home to my new tea cup from Portugal and some vintage used books, including Genteman Prefer Blondes, Breakfast at Tiffany's, and Here Lies the Collected Stories of Dorothy Parker.
And of course, one of my new prized possessions. My mirrored dresser from Z Gallerie. It is so Hollywood Regency chic and totally worth the splurge.
Next up is the bathroom. I had to cover that abrasive orange-red paint with something. So I picked the girliest choice possible...light pink.
Originally, I was thinking of going a dark raspberry. But being in that bathroom for a couple of months with the dark red, I realized the dark color reflected on your face. So for the sake of keeping my make-up application somewhat normal, I opted for a light paint. But I think I might have to pick up some dark raspberry towels for my consolation.
My bathroom is pretty small, so it is hard to get the right picture angles to show you things, but I had to show you one of my favorite things about my bathroom. The shower arch. It is so darling.
So as of this instant, I have no rooms left to paint. What a freeing feeling. Now I just have to get down to decorating. But that is the fun part...
