I might be equally excited about our master bedroom progress as I was about the pantry overhaul yesterday! I’ve been dying to make headway on our master bedroom ever since this post, but have had a heck of a time finding anything that fit my vision, except for my awesome chrysanthemum chair.
After listening to all the feedback in my long-ago post about our master bedroom, I had pretty well settled on the blue walls, cream/taupe as my neutral color, and eggplant-toned purple as our accent. While we loved the peacock pillows and chair in our master with our chocolate throw, we just loved those items even more in our living room… so back they went! The only problem with my choice, was actually finding purple “anything,” unless I wanted lilac! Seriously, I couldn’t even find dark purple pillar candles or bed sheets! Crazy!!!
My jumping off point was dying our amazingly comfortable Calvin Klein sheets that happened to be a textured green color. After the initial dye, they were what I lovingly referred to as “fluorescent purple.” Ok, they weren’t quite that bad, but they definitely weren’t what I was hoping for. Knowing that the fight wasn’t lost, I set out and purchased more dye (I may or may not have sat on Michael’s floor in front of the dye options, researching color combinations on my phone… thank goodness for smartphones)! I successfully found that dying a purple item with navy blue would accomplish the eggplant-toned purple I was hoping for. Just in case though, I bought another purple bottle of liquid dye too! I got home and immediately set into the process, trying the 2nd purple dose first, and when the depth of color wasn’t reached, I threw in the navy blue!
Much better! Now, with the sheets finally the way I wanted them… it’s time for a bedding reveal…
WHAT DO YOU THINK? ANYONE ELSE HAVE ANY DYING ADVENTURES? ANY RECOMMENDATIONS ON WHERE TO FIND MORE PURPLE/EGGPLANT ACCESSORIES?
