I thought I might share a "tour" of our bedroom today.
As you may have gathered, I love bright color, sparkle, and texture. I know that my style may not be the 'look that's in" right now. I am neither minimalist or mid-century modern, although I certainly appreciate those styles and have pinned my share of photos. Instead, I tend to go for bold, eye-catching color and fabrics. I don't care that I live in a small space. I love the fact that when you open the door, it's BOOM! Color, pattern, and touchable prints everywhere. At least, this is the effect I hope I'm achieving. Maybe you look at it and think, "wow, what a tacky mess." If so, then its a good thing I live here and not you!
One of the things I love about our bedroom: it sits on the front of the house. In fair weather, I love throwing open the windows and watching the cars go by. Right outside the window, there is a giant gold ginkgo tree. A little known fact: Frederick hosts the largest ginkgo in the world. Every fall, the ginkgo on our street---almost as tall as the record-breaker a few blocks down--transforms into a yellow-gold giant. Then, all at once, it drops all its leaves, paving our little street in gold.
That tree is one of those little joys about a home that you don't know exist until you buy it.
