Return of the Rain and Decorating Plans

I woke up during the night to more rain. It rained this morning when Abbey and I were supposed to be running. Then it stopped, but there were tornado warnings all afternoon. It is now thundering and lightening...I also think I hear rain, yet again.

Enough about the weather though! I thought I would share a couple of my idea for decorating my new house. I pointed out in yesterday's post that every wall is yellow. At this time I feel pretty certain the living room and guest room will remain yellow. The master bedroom will definitely change. I am still trying to decide about the office, bonus room, and kitchen/dining area. I want to paint my bedroom to go with the new bedding that I have picked out....well, at least I think I have picked this out.



Abbey thinks I should paint the walls green, but I am a little nervous as I have not actually seen the bedding in person. I have this "fear" that it may be a little more lime green than it appears online. I am going to order a sham in the next week to see if I really do like and if I want to paint the walls green or brown.



I really want to incorporate some red/burgundy in the living room, so I have picked out this rug for the floor that brings in some burgundy.

I am actually taking a painting class this weekend and hoping that the piece I finish tomorrow will go over the fireplace or some where in the living room. It's an abstract piece that will have pink, burgundy, green, yellow, and blue in it. At least that is my vision. I'll have to post pictures tomorrow. (If you don't see any posts this weekend, know that I am taking my computer in to the Mac store tomorrow. I have this funny feeling they may keep it a day or two...Since I work Sunday through Tuesday, it may be Wednesday before I can go pick it up.)

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

The bedding is so pretty! We have a similar set of bedding in terms of color (green and white) and our house comes with beige/tan paint on the walls. We think they match well. We also have a very big window in the master bedroom so it brings in great sunlight too.

How did the class finish? Is that rug a Vera Bradley rug?

Snow- Thanks. Tan walls are my option b plan.

J,A,a RL- It went well. My painting is at my apartment. I haven't glazed it yet...not sure if I will or not. I like it though and think it is pretty good for a first try. I'll post pics later. I am still computerless. It is ready, but I had to deal with a flat tire today. It may be Wednesday when I get off work before I can go get it. And to answer your question, yes that is a Vera rug.

Michelle- The bedding is at Bed Bath & Beyond, but is only available on their website.

I vote for a shade of brown walls with that bedding. Just me...
