This is how the story begins.
First, you know how you have an idea in your mind of how you want a space to look? You pin and pin room ideas because you like the walls in this one, or the bedding in that one. Let’s just say, I have many pins of how I wanted our master bedroom to look.
Mr. Kell and I are not fancy, sophisticated people. We are more your beer and barbecue kinda kids who like to sit outside in our lawn chairs on the drive way when the weather is warm. We like to camp. We are more small town than big city. With that being said, I wanted our bedroom to be simple, with a manly twist. I wanted white, and grays, with small pops of color.
Here were some of my ideas…
This one was my favorite. It was bright, but simple. The white bedding with the black and white pillows and green throw. So perfect. To this day, I love to decorate with black and white. Oh, and the deer heads, that would be an ode to Mr. Kell who loves to hunt.
Subtle patterns in the pillows, and then BAM, the yellow. A very happy space, but yet still simple and quiet.
Now the story gets good. It was just supposed to be a quick trip to Homegoods, to look at the ceramics and to see if there were any grey quilts. I bypassed the throw pillows because holy crap I would need a room just for pillows.
I was not looking for it, but it just jumped out and grabbed me from nowhere. I could not ignore it. I could not say no.
Now to figure out what to do with the rest of the room.
