Scott and I decided to jump into adult land and actually research buying a real bed. Not a box spring that we’ve had since college, but a legitimate big girl bed, complete with real wood slats and espresso wood legs. Swoon! I’m super excited about this new venture, but of course, I’m having a bit of a decision dilemma. If I was choosing this bed for someone else it would take .5 seconds. But choosing something for myself? Pour yourself some wine because it’s gonna be a long one.
We have narrowed it down to some fabulous contenders (including some favs from Room and Board), but our top cheese at the moment is the Tate Bed from Crate and Barrel. Yum. We tested it out in person at the store today, but brought home a couple of fabric swatches before sealing the deal. Enter my indecisiveness.
The bed on the left is a great, neutral suede color that would be a great contrast to our new white curtains and soothing blue walls. Plus, it’s in stock and would ship within 1 week. Buuuut I’m not entirely sold on how well it coordinates with our existing chocolate bedding. If you’ve forgotten what our lovely bedding looks like, check it out below.
The bed on the right is a great ivory color that looks great with the paisley bedding, but it would take 8 weeks to deliver and might show a bit more dirt than the darker color.
So what’s a girl to do? Any thoughts on this super important issue that I’m sure you’re all losing sleep over? Should we stick with our best friend beige, or take a risk on a lovely ivory? Oooo I need your help!
