Sweet Dreams

No more camping out in the office! Last night we moved our furniture back into the master bedroom. Mike had finished all the electrical work and patching - lights that  really work and multiple outlets are much appreciated. It feels great to finally have a bedroom that actually fits our furniture - no more banging our knees or squeezing around dressers to move around.

An unexpected benefit to painting our bedroom Palladian Blue - last night the room felt like home.  I was expecting it to feel foreign and new (the way any room does when you're not used to it), but instead it felt familiar and welcoming.  I attribute this feeling to the paint color because we spent the previous 3 years of our life with Palladian Blue bedroom walls in the old apartment.  I'll have to remember this little trick if we move again someday - painting the bedroom walls the same color smooths the transition!

Now of course the room is a mess - so much to organize and put away. So many boxes in the sun room to bring up and unpack. Then I have a ton of decorating to do in here - curtains, lamps, wall art, etc. At some point I would also like to upgrade to some of the furniture too - like matching nightstands!
