Wow, I didn't realize how long it had been since I last blogged, it's amazing how time flies right by when you're so busy that you forget which way to come and go at times.
But that's OK, it's been a very good busy, learning a lot, traveling a lot and making new wonderful friends.
So our house has not sold and we wanted a break so we took it off the market and we're going to wait to Spring to decide what to do.
In the meantime, I'm thinking of repainting our guest room.
Right now it is a buttery yellow
Not sure if the picture shows it well, but, I purchased some fabric quite a while ago to use in our bedroom, but I changed my mind and decided to use it in the guest room,
It is a cream background with brown swirls and I have another just like it except it's a brown background with cream swirls.
The bedding is white with brown trim, so I thought of painting the walls in brown, with white trim and making the windown treatments out of this fabric and using the other fabric as throw pillows and shams.
This room only gets the morning sun, so it's nice a bright but only until about lunch time, so I'm concerned of the room being too dark.
I love these pictures:

This room is by far my favorite but it looks nothing like my guest room....:(

This bedding looks similar to what I already have
So anyway, I've been searching for ideas, but Hubby thinks maybe I shouldn't paint it so dark in case it would scare a buyer away later, but I say, "if it's decorated beautifully then they won't even notice"
well, we shall see.
So what do you think?
Paint the walls dark brown or more of a neutral?
If neutral, what were you thinking?
I'd like to do this by early next week,
HA! Yes, I'm being optimistic!
