Looking at it now, I should have invested in pieces that coordinated with the style of our home better. I went super feminine, while our other spaces are blend of modern and traditional. So, now I am thinking… We can paint and get carpet this summer. We also need a new bed. I bought a vintage bed and repainted it, but I wasn’t super happy with how it came out.
That brings me to the Colette bed from Crate and Barrel. Ah, a thing of beauty. I have drooled over it since seeing the bed featured on The Elements of Style. Pricey, yes. But all the reviews I have read say it is worth every penny.
I started the conversation with my husband by asking if he could make me a headboard. He said “probably” and then I laid the Colette bed on him.
He asked to see it, and as I rambled on trying to justify the cost, he said “we should really invest in pieces we love that will last.”
I knew there was a reason I married this guy.
