We just love, love, love our new home and it has been so much fun making it feel more like us. So far we have changed the red kitchen to a light teal, inviting a clean, fresh feel. We are also in the process of painting our living/dining/hall/loft areas a soothing taupe color, which I love!!!
On top of all these projects we decided that our bedroom needed a little love. While looking through one of my West Elm magazines I found exactly what I wanted but after I saw my cart's total, I wasn't about to spend close to $500(that was for the bedding only.) So the search began and I was able to find pretty much everything I wanted for around $100!! Well, I still need some throw pillows and I would still love to get those cute grey and white striped sheets from West Elm, but as for now I am quite satisfied with the outcome. Oh, do you know how hard it is to find a plain white duvet cover that doesn't cost you mucho money? Well let me tell you, we searched everywhere and I finally found a solid white, wrinkle-free(...yeah right) duvet set at Bed Bath and Beyond after walking around the store 3 times to find it.
As for the bed, I LOVE it! This was purchased at one of my favorite stores, World Market. Every time I enter that store I find a new 'must have' that I can't get out of my mind until I have it as my own. We were able to save a little money on the bed with our fancy 10% off coupon. Every little bit counts!
There is still much to be done in our cozy room; painting the walls, replacing our green dresser, adding some fun throw pillows, and dressing up the walls with curtains, art work and accessories. I will be sure to add more pictures once the room is complete. As for now, hope you enjoy!
