A litttle 511 Wri-Atus

If you follow me on you know that I have had some major home-related issues this past week.
If you don’t, here is our story.
I am forced to take a bit of a wri-atus, but I assure you that some new things are happening in the 511 world. Like a completely changed master bedroom. After all that.
But here’s a little sneak peak…


Getting down to business.

So, folks, it looks like the weird bedroom swap is happening. Imminently.
This girl, my bestie who is going to be having her baby (my little niecelah) this week, is giving me her old bed (mattress frame and headboard) which is totally awesome, as we are downsizing to a Queen temporarily. Our bed now is huge. We’ve had it for 8 years and it is cozy as hell. But, do you know what is cozier? Cuddling up next to the person you love without 4 feet in between you. So we’re going to try it.
I added to my Polyvore with as close as I could find to what our real room will look like. And I have to say. I am digging it.

This is the good kind of crazy. Right?

Never in a million years did I think my husband would agree to my crazy idea.
But, through the power of persistent persuasion, I think it may be happening.
And by think, I have booked an electrician to switch light fixtures and last night I ordered this:
I let my husband choose the bedding.
It is the least I could do.
And I think it will go very well with our current throw pillows and color scheme
Am I crazy for doing this?


Tonight, my husband uttered words that I never thought would come out of his mouth:
“Do you want to get new bedding?”
Now, we all know how I obsess about things; I obsess about color I obsess about crystals
but no single thing has been obsessed about in my time more than bedding. In fact, we have been in our house for nearly a year and a half and we have had the same bedding, which I think is a record. And, to tell you the truth, I really love this bedding. Our duvet is Pottery Barn and was discontinued so I had to hunt it down on ebay. I cannot tell you how many hours I have spent online, or on the top floor of Bloomingdales.
But tonight, when my husband said those words to me, something else happened that was equally as shocking:
I said no. I didn’t say “No, absolutely not!” but I said “I don’t really think we need new bedding, and I’d rather wait until we build our master to get fabulous new bedding.”
Holy Holy.
a few hours later I did find myself perusing West Elm and Pottery Barn. Just for a peek.
And while I was surfing the net I found this:

So whereas last night I got a little lost, tonight I found exactly what I want for my master addition.
That will not be happening for years. And will never include a two thousand and some dollar bench.
But if you’re asking me for the aesthetic I’m going for? That. That is it.
That will be all now.
