More Master Bedroom Decor

The second incarnation of the fabric wall hanging:

I know I never showed you the first incarnation, and I purposely didn't show you the bed nook with the original bedroom reveal just because I wanted to get something on the wall there.
Yes, it's orange.
Again.
And I don't heart it and I want to change it but I just don't have the energy for more painting right this minute.
Anyway, I did this with a bit of fabric and some of those metal strip wall hanging thingies from CB2 . They come 58" long and are sold in a set of two, but I opted to use only one at the top and I cut it down to ~44" with a hacksaw.
As I said, this is incarnation number two. I originally hung just a panel of the print but then decided it needed a little something else so I went back and added the red and orange stripes. It's still not exactly right, but it's easy to change and I'll ponder it a bit more before I do anything else. My other idea was to giganto-size the print from the fabric and do a tone on tone stencil of it on this wall, ala the bike room, but that was seeming like it was going to require more energy than I have at this particular moment and I needed the room to be one step closer to done RIGHT NOW. Plus I need to decide what color I'm going to change the wall to first.

Because I love the fabric ever so much, I made a couple of coordinating pillow cases for the bed. In theory, this is the lead in to an entire bed-sized quilt project which I hope will be the focal point of the room, but I've been saying I'm going to do that forever and I'm sure by the time I decide where I'm actually going with it, I'll be on a completely new track with the fabrics. But as I said, the wall hanging is easy to change and for now, will do.

How about hand the fabric horizontally? I love a black field with vivid colors. How about the orange wall is a very very dark charcoal or black?

I have now looked through your blog and I must say I am amazed by your talent and creativity! I loved every minute of it. You are so lucky to have such a beatuiful home, and I'm sure it is worth all the work. I love your design, both exterior and interior. It's just perfect! I think the colors work beautifully together and the design of the rooms seems practiacal and functional. I loveyour dining table, and teh guest bathroom is to die for! Your idea to use wires to hang the curtains is brilliant and so decorative!

I can't wait to get my own house. I would never finish it, cause there would always be new projects....

Thank you for sharing your dream and these great ideas!

Splatgirl: Love your blog & attitude! Do tell: did you MacGyver the slat headboard or did you find it off-the-shelf? Great use of space there.
