Yep, something similar to the above example (excuse the tiny image). Mine is unfinished - could NOT get my green right - so am giving myself some time to calm down and start over, because I learned SO much in the process.
The really great thing was, as we discussed colours (the associated emotions and their application in small v large spaces or dark v light spaces etc), that I felt really good about the paint colours I've chosen for the walls at home. Now, to paint!

Mmmmm, now that I'm looking at the image (was focussed on the content before), I like the striped rug, the repetition of the rectangles/squares in the pillows, headboards, side table and frames and - even if not in a bedroom - the pairing of red and aqua.

To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury; and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable; and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden, and unconscious grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony.
William Henry Channing 1810-1884

"Jodie Hedley-Ward holds a Master of Business degree, a Bachelor of Commerce and a Graduate Diploma in management. Jodie, [a mother of two], initiated the Motherhood Study in conjunction with the University of the Sunshine Coast in 2009. The research will provide ongoing insights into the reality of the experience of motherhood for women today...The Motherhood Study, [conducted by Hedley-Ward and Dr Angela Huntsman], is an anonymous on-line survey designed to ask the questions that matter most to mothers. The research will provide specific and timely information relevant to policy makers and practitioners. This study has the potential to positively impact the provision of services for mothers internationally."

You may be interested in completing the survey here, as I did.
