     The chair is red with nailhead beading on the edges (does that even make sense?) The curtains are brown. Do you think I should get different curtains too?

    Quoting psych_mom:

    Definitely number 2 to add some spice. I would try to find some pictures that have some red in them as well.

    How does the rest of your room look? Then I can give you an informed decision.

     


     

    I like #2 best for your room. It's small and dark and #1 will make it feel that way even more unless you can go bold on your walls.

    I would either paint the wall behind your bed the same color red as the comforter, and hang dark brown window panels, or I would go with red window panels and add a wide brown stripe to the bottom.

    Also separate your two dressers so that you have a large space betweeen them.  Place the chair between them, a very small table, and hang a mirror or bright print on the wall.  It will open your room up a lot.

    Check out Bed, Bath and Beyond. They have lots of beautiful stuff that would work.

    Barbie, are you sure that you don't want to go into business together, lol. I was thinking the same thing about the dressers, but I see that she has them pushed together for function. Bed side lamps would also help this space a lot with lighting.

    If you are thinking she should paint her early American style nightstands a fun, but slightly distressed color (and I already know you were) then YES! LOL

    And Jaytee, I don't mean that in any disrespect to you, but you have some great pieces that could make your room look Amazing with just a few little changes.

    That could be very pretty, she could use chalk paint and ah... sigh... beautiful! LOL. So in a few years when I am burnt out and have my student loans paid off and you are tired of staring at the computer screen all day,  lets go for it :)

    You will be a most excellent partner.  I worry that I will be completely crazy by that time so I might need to use some of your psych skills. :)

    BTW, my bow tying is not coming along so well. You'll have to be our bow tyer.

    Well, I will bring you back to sanity and teach you how to make bows and you can teach me all the DIY stuff I don't know :)
