I thought I'd share a few changes that I made to my bedroom using things that I already had. I have had this magazine for a few months and recently gave it another look. I became inspired by a few pages in it.
As you know, my lower level is pretty much void of color. I prefer a more serene feminine farmhouse feel to it. However, upstairs I have more color. It has become a nice outlet for me to play with colors there too.
Here are some inspiration pics from the magazine above.
I love the pops of blue and fuchsia combined with the softness of the cottage style.
I love the feminine lines of this room, ie; chandelier, drapes, bench, layers of pillows. I am also drawn to the cheerful colors.
I love the pattern on the drapes and the flowers.
I believe that the dominant factor in these rooms is that they all have a "flea market" feeling to them. In other words, the decor is not matching and has a collected cottage feel to it.
So............onto my bedroom to see if mine has any of those qualities now.
First off, I added a punch of color with these fuchsia flowers and blue painted lamp to the dresser beside my bed.
The dresser and the floral painting both came from flea markets!
I carried the blue color over to the other bedside table too.
I don't have room for a bench, but had this vintage needlepoint stool that I added to the foot of my bed. It came from a flea market as well.
I painted the legs gold. The needlepoint is in disrepair, but I think that just adds to the charm of it.
Beside my chair, I have a wicker magazine holder......from a flea market.
And.......above my dresser is an old piece of metal used as wall art.
So, you can see that my room is a mix of flea market finds, floral patterns, mismatched furniture and playful colors. I think it's a nice deviation from some of the other rooms in my house. Don't we all need a little detour every now and then?
Thanks for stopping by!
