We’ve been living in our home for almost 12 years now. I love it’s natural, peaceful and serene colour palette. The walls are two different shades of green, the carpet is a pale grey-green and the trim is white. I’ve kept decorating to a minimum – don’t know if it’s because I don’t know how to do it, I’m lazy, or I just plain like things plain…
But, the other day I was at Costco and spied this fabulous king-size micro-fibre duvet cover for about $35.00. Yes, I said $35.00 not $350.00. Whoa. I couldn’t walk past it. Not only were the reds calling to me, but it was the green leaves that did it. They are the exact colour of green that I love. The exact shade to match my walls. It was love.love.love. I felt a little giddy as I threw it into my cart with nary a second thought.
Then I noticed there were matching green sheets… sheets made of micro-fibre… sheets so soft… so, so soft. So, so soft, and so, so green. Have I mentioned I love green?
Anyway… seeing as I had already lost my mind I went on the hunt for a picture to put above our bed. I’ve been thinking about it forever but the idea was just too daunting. I didn’t have clue as to what I wanted and I thought it had to be some kind of perfectly expensive piece of art, so of course it didn’t happen.
We don’t have a lot of choices in our small city so I headed to Home Sense. And lookee what I found there! A match made in heaven. Seriously, could there have been a more appropriate picture? It cost $80.00 (I’m almost embarrassed) but don’t you just love it when that happens?
It doesn’t have to be expensive and I’m flabbergasted at the transformation!
Take a look at the before – not bad… but oh, my… how dreary… what took me so long?
Hubby’s happy too. He figures he’s got my Valentine gift and my birthday gift taken care of. And he’s right!
