I've always wanted to do something really neat with my bedroom, but instead of doing anything, I've just been thinking about what to do for the past 1.5 years. I made my quilt thinking that would give me a better idea or direction, but instead it just confused me more (the quilt now has it's home folded up on my couch, in the living room). My room now has no organization or style.
I came across this image in the January 2007 issue of Martha Stewart Living Magazine and it really got me. I immediately went to the fabric store and bought swatches to see if it would work.
The problem is, my entire apartment has this olive green, orange, brown, yellow, retro-ey thing going on, I'm not sure where red and blue would fit. I also have a green dresser which would probably have to be re-painted with these colors (maybe blue?). I'm still not convinced. Before I sew any more blankets or duvet covers for my bed, I think I need to get a little more organized. My next purchase will be this bookcase (in Birch-effect, 72 7/8x72 7/8"). And once I get all my stuff in there, I'll start sewing a duvet cover.
