I blacked out and woke up with a paintbrush in my hand, I swear.

A little bit of info about myself: I love to redecorate. Paint, curtains, furniture...the whole shebang. The problem? No moolah. So, I use what I got and think long and hard before doing something drastic. If I present an idea for change to my husband, I have to remind him that if I am suggesting it to him, it means that I've already thought about it, thought about it some more, redesigned the thought, figured out how to do it as economically and effortlessly as possibly, thought about it a few more times and then finally decided that the idea is a good one, one that will be worth the time, effort, and money required.

That being said, I've been keeping my mind open to ideas for our living room and bedroom. I'm not one to be easily swayed by a photo of a redecorated room in a magazine or online. However, I caught sight of this beauty of a bedroom at Apartment Therapy's fall colors contest and was inspired.
It was calming, comfortable, and beautiful. It evoked all the right emotions and I fell in love. Now I'm desperately trying to find the name of this Valspar color. This solidified what I had started to formulate in my mind for our bedroom. BTW, I loooove tall headboards. So, for the final test of this future endeavor, I showed it to H. And he really liked it. So, this will be our room. I just gotta figure out how to get the furniture for next to nothing (cause that's what we got right now) and find out the color. Wish me luck.

I love those colors, too. I am going to do a similar look in our "office" Translation: junk storage room. But mine is more a robin's egg blue with black accessories. But same clean lines.Please post photos of your final makeover.
