Earlier this year when I started to entertain the thought of painting the walls of our guest room a soft, pale blue everyone in my family believed I'd lost my mind. Still...the more I thought about it the more convinced I was my color choice was right. The palette of my entire home is one of pale muted shades of blush pink, creams, whites and soft taupes. Even though I knew I wanted to continue with the cottage white theme on the furniture, I wanted something completely different for the walls. So...as I told you a couple of weeks ago I picked the color COOL ELEGANCE (Lowe's) and earlier this week finished painting all four walls.

I still have MUCH to do in the room. I've carried the same romantic look I have throughout my home into this room as well and I'm loving how it is coming out. The room feels light and the color is refreshing. I've chosen cottage whites, creams and soft whites for the furniture and bedding (of course I did!) but I haven't as yet decided on how to dress the single window. Thankfully we have plantation shutters so I'm not pressed to decide right away...I have a little time to plan. I'm also on the hunt for a fabulous buffet mirror to go above the headboard (you know, those rectangle ones that are sometimes very ornate?) and also a couple of pretty accent fabrics for the bed pillows. I'm thinking soft brown or a pretty floral). I want the room to stay simple and uncomplicated but at the same time be completely romantic!

I know some of you are going to hate me (Carol from FL be nice to me!) but here are a couple of sneak-peek pictures I hope you will enjoy...
Promise...more soon! In the midst of all my playing and decorating I do have to work! :) My once FAT piggy bank looks like he's been fasting for far too long!!!
Hope your Saturday is awesome!
Love to you...
