Our bedroom currently looks like this:
It's a decent blend of the both of us, but it's always been a little too brown and monochromatic for me.
If there's one thing I have learned about myself, it's that I need color in my life to feel good! The other thing I recently realized is that blues and reds are the colors that make me the happiest.
My blog friend, Lilly, called blue my "signature color." I love that! It makes me think of Shelby in Steel Magnolias (for those of you who haven't seen the movie, pink is her signature color. It makes me laugh just thinking about her saying it!).
Well, it's time I add a little of my "signature color" to this room! (And, a longhorn cow for good measure, too - ha!)
Honestly, my husband likes blues that are a little bolder than this, but I am totally in love with the quilted pillow shams and absolutely adore everything about them. (His eyes are usually closed in this room anyway so I think he'll live - ha!)
I think it will be easy to update with just a few tweaks here and there.
By the way...did you notice my kitty "hidden" in the picture?
My animals always like to be near me when I'm taking pictures for some reason. They are cropped out of so many photos!
You may notice that a lot of my inspiration is from Pottery Barn:
They have so many things that totally fit my style and personality.
Aside from the bedding, I can find the mirrors other places if necessary. I saw that Home Decorators has something similar for less money.
I found this faux grainsack pillow on Etsy but I can definitely make that myself.
As I usually do when decorating, I have a few splurges and a few bargains.
And, of course, the ideas I've assembled are always subject to change because I can get so easily sidetracked when I spot a beautiful fabric or something else that catches my eye. But, for now, I'm pretty excited about my plan. I can't wait to get started!
Oh...and to update, I'm just about finished with my daughter's room. I just have to hang a picture and a shelf on her wall and make a few minor adjustments and we're done. She loves it and it really suits her personality. I hope to be sharing that update with you soon!
Thanks for reading and happy Tuesday, y'all!
