The Very First Time

Ever since we moved into our house, I've found myself attracted to pictures of pretty rooms. I bookmark the website or tear it out of a magazine to save for when I'm looking for ideas.

I ogle furniture we don't really need. Everything from modern furniture to slightly more classic pieces. And dream of plans for rooms that we're not ready to start tackling yet.

And it's only gotten worse since the wedding as I need a creative outlet.

Plus, I'm just plain tired of the poop-colored walls in our bedroom. And the shoddy paint job.

I am devouring magazines that shout about colors and style and blogs about home tweaking and making a house your own. All in search of inspiration.

Now that we're practically done with the kitchen (FINALLY) (pictures to come later this week), it's time to do our bedroom. And while we're not planning as big an overhaul as we did in the kitchen, I'm at a little bit of a loss for where to start.

New bedding has been purchased in a lovely neutral brown. But I want to find a good piece of something to put over our bed to draw the eye and be the color inspiration for the walls.

Only I'm coming up with zero ideas for what that could be.

And now it's the part where you come in. I'm doing something I've never done before. I'm popping the Giveaway Cherry. is giving one of you lovely people of the Mocha Mob a $40 gift certificate that can be used at any of their sites.
