so as some of you know, i have been dying to update our bedroom for quite some time now. and by update, i just mean make a headboard. :) i love the red/aqua/white color scheme because we already have a dark red comforter and need something to go with it; however, it has become increasingly impossible to find the color combo that is in my head, so i have opened up my mind to other options. i've found that i also like red and grey color combo, a light blue and red, and just red and white. but now i just can't decide what would look best large and in charge resting behind our bed.

so this is what i have found as far as my options go:

feel free to give any suggestions and/or opinions! :)

i love #3. the red and white would be something you would get quick of faster. have you ever thought of making the headboard very neutral- solid gray or gray on gray- and then adding the contrasting color with art and pillows? just a thought... i just always do the more permanent things (headboard) more neutral and add craziness with the cheaper to replace things (painting, especially). you could do some large canvases behind the bed.

i like the blue-ish top pattern...maybe with more of a grey tone... i love the red/aqua/white color scheme too.

soo- about blogging! :) i'm gonna be posting on a new blog here:

i need to redirect the old one to the new one. of course this new one my boss will be posting on there too. so enjoy! and i can't wait to see what you do choose for that large and in charge headboard ;)
