When we moved in, the guest room was pink. Then I painted it yellow. Then I painted it green/blue. Now I want to paint it...pink. I know, I know! But something about the color combo in there has just always bugged me and I won't relax about it until it feels right. And it won't be the exact pink that was in the room before. It'll be more of a soft peach. I know that sounds horrible but look (via here)...
...it could be beautiful!!
I love how this room is soft b/c of the peachy pink walls but is also grounded and feels substantial with all the dark wood tones. And I really love how warm it is with the red-orange and yellow thrown in. I think that's the biggest thing that bugs me about the room right now...the blue/green on the walls isn't warm enough.
So, getting down to logistics. There are a few things that have to stay as is...the curtains and the pink desk. The good thing is that those items will fit right in with what I'm thinking. The metal headboard and the dresser can be painted (or replaced) and the bedding can be changed. The tricky part is what to do about the nightstands. I painted them a few years back and I LOVE them, but they wouldn't really work in the new room. Or maybe they would, but I'm doubting it. Of course I could always paint them another color. I used to get more attached to the way I had a room fixed up and would never dream of changing it once it was finished, but I've moved away from that these days (hence, the living room overhaul). I think its healthy to change things up every now and then.
Anyway, I'd love some feedback!
