Then, I attempted to brighten things up a bit by adding a white comforter. Which worked, but the room was lacking style and still had too much brown.
After my little guy started sleeping through the night (at over one year old!), and I regained my ability to think straight, I decided to invest in a bedding set with color.
Then, I got smart and moved the bed in front of the window, ditched the dark brown curtains, and put up some airy white curtain panels.
Much better, don't you think? I still have a few things left to do:
- Add a bed skirt to create under-the-bed storage
- Invest in some colorful lamps
- Install bamboo shades instead of white wooden blinds
I think it is coming along nicely though. Much improved from when we first moved in!
