Our bedroom is not the most relaxing place to me and I would like it to be. The wall are empty and I haven’t really loved the decor. I painted the walls and got a new white bedspread that I liked for a while but then Molly got a hold of this big vitamin pill and got pink stuff all over the bedspread, completely ruining it. Since then I have been determined to make the room more me.
I didn’t want to spend too much time or money on all of this so I went around my house looking for things to take from here and there or that were being stored. I found the following items and hung them in a collage and I love what it looks like! Most of what I had was sitting in a box waiting for a table to set them on or something. I am really happy with the way it turned out!
Right now I love grey and yellow – as do most people – it is so hot right now! Since I painted the walls grey (the grey looks more like he first picture in person), I wanted to find a yellow comforter. It was not as easy as I thought. I searched the Internet looking for the yellow I had in mind. Everything was too pale or too neon and just plain ugly. While at Target one day, I came across the bedspread below and I fell in love!
It wasn’t exactly what I had in mind but I love the patterns and the balance of the other colors with the yellow! And we saw the same comforter on HGTV’s House Hunters and somehow that made me really proud like I picked something that ended up on TV! HA.
I like the overall look of the main part of the room now.
I am thinking that some homemade painters canvas curtains painted with a chevron pattern would be fun! We have to keep the blackout curtains though as there is a warehouse behind our house with bright spotlights that shine right in our windows at night – lovely.
I just had to point this out – do you see what we keep in the corner?
That’s right, a bat. Robbers beware, we mean business.
Back to the walls – I had a round art piece from Ikea that was off white with brown birds painted on it. I wanted to create something more me with that and so I made this more modern looking piece. I really hate it. I have had it on the wall for a while trying to get used to it, but it just isn’t working for me – but at least I tried. One day I will get around to making it into something else!
I remember moving into our house after it was built thinking I had to have everything the way I wanted it right away but I am finding that decor is more of a collection over time that you build upon here and there. I have a long want list but I do love going to my more comfy bedroom at the end of the day! The rest of my list can wait a while!
