I'm honored to have Stefanie of Brooklyn Limestone as my guest for day three of Beautiful Blogger Bedrooms. If you're one of the few that doesn't read her blog on a regular basis, she is talented in so many areas, and I blame her for starting my addiction to design blogs :) Enjoy:
Thanks Emily for asking me to share my bedroom. It's still very much a work in progress but I'm feeling better about it after making a few changes recently.
I made the mistake of not having a clear vision for the room right at the start. I spent the last 2 years floundering around with this and that. Nothing looked quite right or came together. That was until I finally decided to embrace the yellow in the fireplace (which I hated when I first bought the place!) and incorporate the gray I had wanted all along.
Once I had it settled in my mind's eye, putting it all together went much easier.
So this is it - as finished as its going to get for a while. I hope you enjoyed the peek into my home. If you'd like to see more, please stop by my place, www.brooklynlimestone.com
