Funnily enough, the wall colour in in the photo is actually what I would like it to be, compared to the current greenish-beige. I'm now on the hunt for the perfect shade of grey paint... i'd love any recommendations if you have them! I'm also keeping an eye out for some lovely bedding, probably a mix of dark and light greys, along with white of course. I think Rick is concerned that it's going to be neutral city in here, but once we get side tables, accessories, and some framed prints going, it should all (hopefully) come together.
I also desperately want to re-stain the banister, and a similar railing that seperates our kitchen from the living area. It's the basic builder railing, oak with a glossy coating. I'm not a fan. I'm thinking sanding it down, and then restaining with a darker, espresso coloured stain, but i'm nervous to attempt it. I should probably do a little more research first, ha. Have any of you attempted to do this before on an oak railing? I'd love to hear about it.
Each little change feels like a step forward to making it our own. I like that.
Update: A lovely reader was asking about which headboard exactly that we have. We purchased the king-size "Diamond Tufted Headboard" in Dove Grey, which you can find here (In Canada we ordered it in from the store in Toronto).
