~The Beauty Of A Flower & My Room~

I spent the end of last week painting my bedroom which explains the sore arms and stiff back! When did I become so old? :) 
I love this color, it's slate from Restoration Hardware. I like how it adds a more dramatic touch to the room and turned out to be the perfect backdrop for my windows!
Now my older son wants me to repaint his room this color, I need to rest first!
Hope you all had a wonderful Easter and have a lovely week!


  1. LOVE your bedroom makeover. Everything looks great, and I too like the color. It's becoming very popular right now. Katie has big windows as a headboard behind her bed too. I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!

    Take care, Sue

  2. it is gorgeous!! The gray is just beautiful.
    so clean and smooth looking with your accents and bedding.
    Melinda you make it all look so easy.
    Next week is our week to finish our bedroom, after a year of only one wall being painted, ugh.
    Have a great week

    I can identify completely with aching arms and back after decorating, usually I can add an aching neck too if I have been painting ceilings!
    Love your blog,

  14. Oh Melinda, this color looks gorgeous against your bed, furniture and salvage windows! Just love it. I'll be painting our master bedroom soon, too, and don't look forward to the process itself. But seeing this, I know the outcome will be worth it!!
