Redecorating the Master Bedroom....

I've been working on redecorating the master bedroom for the past year. Yes, I know I'm slow but when DH starts working on being the designer I quit and that is why it has taken soooo long.  I chose not to replace any furniture as the bedroom furniture is an off white and that will go with most anything.  Here's the wall color that I chose:

The color is called Composed and is in the green family of colors at Sherwin Williams.  It reminds me of the color of water just off the beach of an island.  I love it.  It is such a happy color.  Of course, picking the wall color first slowed down finding new comforter and curtains.  I have finally found a comforter now:

Here's a glimpse on my own bed:

Sorry, this isn't a great picture.   I took this when I was checking the size to see if DH liked the colors (see, I give him options).  You can also see that the actual color on the wall is darker than the Sherwin Williams color chip above.  The bedroom furniture really pops again this wall color.  I am now on the search for curtains.  They will most likely be the dark purple color that you see in the shams.  They will need to be lined as I prefer to have a dark room. It was suggested that I try JC Penny's for curtains.  Has anyone had any experience with custom draperies there?  I will also need to add some small pillows to add more color/texture.  I will make two or three little pillows.  I still need to decide on wall decorations.  I always have a hard time picking that kind of stuff out.

Here's the fabric that I picked up for the first project shown with one of the shams:

This will become a pillow case for the body pillow that is hidden the picture of the bed with the new comforter on it.  I do like making things that match but wow! has the fabric gotten expensive to make a pillow case.  Of course, it will outlive anything that I could purchase.  Hopefully, I didn't over buy by too much.  If I did, I will certainly be making a pillow from the leftovers.

What do you think of my colors?  Too bold?  Just right?

Happy Stitching!
