A Bright Place To Rest My Head

I wanted to share with you these bedroom flicks that I just adore. I really want to get started painting our bedroom from a dark grey to a shade of rusty orange but I just can't seem to find the motivation. I'm thinking this might be just the push I need;)

If you are considering decorating your room in this color, I say do your research on the color. So many people see red when you say "orange". I always loved it but have yet to find the right shade.

Enjoy your night. - Sage mommy

I love that color! It's the color of my current kitchen (soon to be loved by someone else), I'm going to miss it.
