Bedroom

Well I tried to make the bed this morning so I could take a few photos of the completed bedroom but SOMEONE wouldn't let me ...
While it doesn't look like a lot was done to the room ... let me remind you that it was floor to ceiling wallpaper.

after:
I was going to paint the room a dark blue (similar to our bed sheet). Gerry and I like our bedroom to be like a dark little cave where no light can enter (the vintage velvet curtains help with that) but once the new wallpaper went up I decided to paint the room the whitest white possible. The room felt like it wanted to be clean and crisp. So crisp it is. :)

The wallpaper and I had a long debate. At first I wanted it at the head of the bed so when you walked into the room it's the first thing you saw ... but wallpaper reminded me that what I originally wanted was to lay in bed and look at the wallpaper. So wallpaper prevailed!
I'm quite pleased with how it all turned out. I still have to find some art-work that I can hang above the bed... but it has to be something earthquake proof. I live in fear of The Big One and want something that won't impale me while I sleep. Any thoughts?

Well done, Sarah! It looks gorgeous. :)

As for impale-free art, I would suggest any sort of painting stretched on canvas and not framed. That way I would think at worst you would get a bonk on the head from the wood stretching the canvas but no glass shards to impale you.

Looks beautiful. I would be more afraid of being impaled by the spikey shoes! :)

Wow, that is amazing wall paper! I just took a look at your 'The Big One' link and I have to say that I'm very glad that we here in the UK do not have to live in fear of earthquakes! We had a very small one last year and someones lampshade fell over and the country went nuts....
Yes, unframed canvas sounds like your safest option.
