Outdoors in: Rocks!
Jan 25, 2010
We Great Lakes dwellers are sort of obsessed with rocks because they're so plentiful and so beautiful, every color of a desaturated rainbow and worn smooth by the waves. Last Monday I featured Lisa's fabulous DIY rock lamp. Today, I'll show you a simpler way to enjoy the beauty of rocks in the house. Lisa got her hands dirty with a power tool and all, and yes, her results are truly enviable. But what did I do? I went to the beach and got some rocks. And then I put them under the foot of the bed. In-stalled!
I like a simple, unfussy bedroom, so I have a platform bed with no boxspring, no skirt, no nonsense. It makes a nice space for a little natural accent. Here it's dressed in its winter look with darker bedding, a textured throw pillow, and a faux-mink throw draped over the headboard. And I have a confession to make: that's not the real wall color. I've been thinking about sliding it down the spectrum in a cooler direction, so I played with it in Photoshop. Right now the walls are Sherwin-Williams Rainwashed, a soft aqua. But I like the looks of this cooler, greyer hue. I think the rocks like it, too. —Diane
