Balance

With the weather finally down into the 80s and 90s, we're venturing back outside for exterior projects, but we're not opposed to crossing indoor tasks off the list whenever the opportunity presents itself (as I wrote about here), and the guest room has been on the receiving end of that effort lately.

It's becoming one of my favorite rooms in the house...mostly because it's one of the most finished rooms in the house. Here's an up-to-the-minute view, with new pillows, lamps, and wall art:



I guess I should have used non-glare glass in the frames over the bed (since light from the windows is reflected in them from pretty much every angle). Here are the pictures from a better vantage point:



The one on the left is a pen-and-watercolor piece we picked up on Kauai during our honeymoon cruise (and finally put in a frame after nearly nine years), and the right is a picture of my college campus that I took, developed, printed, and matted myself in a photography class. I don't love the imbalance between color on the left and black-and-white on the right, but I have a plan to deal with that.

Other (longer-term) parts of the plan? Different end tables, changes to the bed frame, a rug at the foot of the bed (ideally round, and possibly shaggy), and...and...and.... Okay, so maybe it's not that close to finished after all....
