Who Is Prettier?

I'm looking for our Master Bedroom in The Historic House By The Water.

The Blonde will set us back a few Benjamins, while The Brunette (which is actually a deep purple) will only run us eighty some-odd dollas. Or as Andrew says, "Less than the cost of Bingo."

Don't ask.



So who should win the pageant?

(Oh and, if you're wondering, think dark deco-inspired wood furniture, old wood floors, 1920s ornate gold mirrors and fixtures, big lamps, deep gray walls, heavy silk or velvet window treatments.)

I vote for the brunette. All the glam, but classily understated. Plus I think the yellow might rob your gold fixtures of their rightful warm glow.

THE BLONDE for sure......awesome!

Amanda said...

Oooh. The blonde....

The design on the blonde is beautiful - it has a great 'hand' quality to it. I think it would be striking with deco furniture, gray walls and light up the dark floors. I actually tried not to like it, but I really do.

Blonde initially grabs me, however having written that the other would serve you well, too. You could ride out the recession with the brunette, or stimulate the economy by getting Blondie!

I've been really excited about blonde and gray lately and bedrooms are a great place for excitement !

I really adore the blonde, however I think the brunette would go better with deep gray walls, velvet, and ornate gold. I would like the blonde in a more casual room as the "wow" factor.

So far that's:

6 for The Blonde (including an emailed opinion)
2 for The Brunette

And we haven't even hit the Swimsuit or Talent portions of the competition yet...

Brunette!
I think the blonde is too yellow.

I love gray and yellow, so I have to vote Blonde. Dang, why do I always like the more expensive one?

Kelly Muys Wood said...

I know, Micah. I have this uncanny ability to uncover the expensive. And I'm cheap so it doesn't work out very well. :)

I'm drawn to the blonde, but I have to say the purple is quite a looker too. I think you could use either and end up with one sexy room!

The blonde! I think it is more special.
