So, what do you get when you have 2 starving artists trying to run their own business in this economy? You get an ugly as sin bedroom with tons of stuff all over the floor. And this leads to the sensitve artist husband (he's a Cancerian), feeling unsexy and overwhelmed.
Anyone want to help me create an awesome bedroom for cheap or practically free? The bedroom itself is huge (or at least to someone used to super tiny spaces), something like 16x17 or something like that.
This is roughly the layout. The room starts off with 7 ft ceilings where the head of the bed is and ends up with 9 or 9.5 ft. where the bathroom door is. Our furniture is very underscaled and the cheapest of thrifted finds. We're starving artists, remember? The wall where the bathroom ends seems very very blank and sterile. We actually have no art on the walls, either.
We're painting in the palest light green color soon with accents of Chinese red and maybe plum or orange? The bedspread is a white on white quilt that I love, so no changes there. I usually prefer super dark almost gothic or moroccan interiors, but the hubby wants to try something lighter for a change. We'd love it it invoke almost a Charleston feeling, but with a heavy vintage air. Art Nouveau would be great! We adore Alphonse Mucha and hope to make a pilgrimage to Prague to see his work a few years from now.
