I started creating a Pinterest board before I even touched down in Boston and I went to work almost immediately, well, once my tenant was out.
The color on the wall was a pretty unique idea, at least for me. The accent wall had always been a deep brick red. The condo came with that wall and I loved it. but I was ready to have something new, something different. Just how I feel I am a different person now than I was when I bought it. And now compared to who I was before all this happened. I am not massively different, but I have gotten to know and love myself even more and better.
I digress, as per the usual.
My best friend in Germany, her husband and I went to have a lovely dinner on the oceanfront. And the water glasses on the table were this gorgeous greyish blue and my friend said "That's the perfect wall color for you" and she was right. I adored it.
Finding that same wall color though? HAHAHAHAHA. Dear God. What a task. Didn't help that I had to pick the colors more or less in a half dark apartment, but I am actually really happy with how it turned out.
There are a lot of other things I wanted to do. Well, not a lot. I was determined to get a new grown up sofa - but I decided to just get a new slipcover and I adore it.
I also wanted a new bed and DID order that. Listen folks, I need new bedroom karma. A lot of fun and sex will be happening in that room and I can't have "ex" energy around for that type of work. Therefore, new bed.
The new bed is amazing. Even more amazing are my friends who put it together for me while I was a wedding this week. I came home and was completely puzzled that the two large ass boxes were gone and then - as I text one of my girls - I glance and see the new bed in my bedroom.
The bed is amazing and even more amazing is that I found all accent pieces for my bedroom this weekend. It looks amazing. I only need to figure out the wall art and I will do that in the next few weeks.
So, I created a space I really adore :) And I am really excited about it and I love to go into that room and enjoy it immensely. So do the dogs.
All I need to do is hang all my art now. I still miss a few small pieces to get a proper ART WALL together, so once I have those, shit will go up and we are done.
This has totally helped me work through some of my sadness. It was something to focus on, recreating a space that I spent time in with this stranger person I spend so many nights next to. And I needed to get rid of those memories.
