I hate to try and go to sleep when I'm hot. And having the overhead fan running makes me cough.
So this morning I took the quilts off my bed. And got this navy blanket out of the closet. I left my fitted and flat sheet, and just folded the blanket underneath the mattress.
This way, at night when I might get a bit cool, as it was last night, I simply untuck the blanket and pull it over me. (I don't have it tucked in by the wall.)
I'm so glad I didn't give into a whim and paint this red again. I think it is beautiful orange. And orange and red can live comfortably and beautifully together in my opinion.
Abi is happy because she got to lay on a soft blanket and also got in every photo. One pleased pupster!
When winter comes, I can make the bed back up with quilts. But for now, this is what I need to sleep in the hot August heat.
You notice the bedding is wrinkled. Well, I slept on those pillows last night. And I don't go so far as to iron things for my posts!
I keep a laptop in here to work on at night. There is a little red votive in a vintage mason jar lid. And I have my TV remote, fingernail file, and a couple of pens in the little white pitcher you see.
So how do you feel about the reds and oranges together? Is it a bit much for you? Would you be able to live with all this color?
I definitely can. So don't worry about your opinion swaying me in any way!
