For awhile now I have been wanting to redo my bedroom. We are living with my father to save money, and I have redecorated every other room in my childhood home, but my bedroom remains a hideous, mismatched mess. We are talking yellowed butterfly comforter that I used in middle school, plastic glow in the dark stars still on the ceiling, tape from my sister’s high school posters, and so on and so forth. It is just awful.
In January I am going to finally start the process of conquering this room and making it ME. My husband is majorly easygoing, so he had no opinion whatsoever on what I should do with it other than “no white bedspread!” Why, you may ask? Not because he cares what the room looks like . . . just because he knows I won’t do what it takes to keep it looking pristinely white. It’ll be stained by the end of the first month because some kid will wander in with a sippy cup and lay it on the bed and then I’ll forget to treat the stain until a week later. Seriously.
With white ruled out I was a bit distressed. I really love the all-white with pops of color look, but, in reality, that not truly me either. I need color in my life. COLOR COLOR COLOR. So I decided to embrace my original vision but add in a colored duvet cover instead of a white one. I settled on the Mi-Zone Mirimar Duvet Set, which had the bonus of coming with that fetching little bird pillow!
I know I want LOTS of colors in this room, and I plan to do that with a gallery wall, etc. but I thought that throw pillows were the perfect start! Throw pillows are the best way ever to jazz up a room or change things up in a hurry. I am a little bit addicted to them. Here are the fantastic pillows that I ended up choosing, from left to right:
* Rizzy Home Reversible Pillow in Magenta
* Rizzy Home Decorative Pillow (the “sunny” one)
* Harbor House Lara Oblong Pillow (the white ruffles – swoon)
* Chooty & Cho Duck Cotton Pillow (bright pink)
Aren’t they perty? I love them. After I took this picture I packed them back into their plastic and hid them away, though. They have to stay clean and beautiful until I can do the rest of the room! My husband is not wrong about our chaotic life, after all . . . 😉
I can’t wait to get a headboard and an accent wall behind that bed!
