Bedroom Changes

Hello everyone!

Well, I just couldn't help myself.  You remember when I moved my new European sham pillow out of my bedroom and into my foyer right?  As usual, one thing leads to another and I decided to make some changes to my bedroom.  I thought it was a bit busy.  I removed some items and replaced others.  

I still love a cottage style bedroom, but I didn't want it too cluttered or too dressy. So here is what it looks like now.


I removed the netting above the bed and utilized the ledge design of my headboard to lean floral paintings on.  I love this casual look.  The netting was a bit fussy and dressy. This immediately opened up the room.


While I was taking pictures, look who decided to come lay on my bed?  Little stinker!


Another thing I did was use the ruffled blanket I got at Ikea on the corner of the bed.  I love it here.  I hardly noticed it in the family room.


I also removed the matching lamps with the brown shades.  I instead used this black iron lamp and cream colored shade that I had in my basement.  I like the casual feel of not having matching lamps on each side now. I even removed the decorative plaques on the wall.


The dresser on the other side of the bed got a makeover too.  I changed the artwork hanging above it to something smaller and added some silk peonies.  Having no lamp on this side frees up space and gives it a lighter look. 





I'm enjoying the fresh lighter look.  I need to repaint this room.  I'm not sure if I will use this same color or not though.  It's a nice vintage cream color called Creamware from Restoration Hardware.  I'll have to give it some thought.  For now, I'm content with these easy, no cost changes.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Kelly... I love that ruffled blanket from IKEA. I sure miss having that store close by. Your room looks so fresh and clean - I wish mine did. I have millions of socks to match up just laying there waiting for me. Sock hell! Happy weekend. TGIF

I love how a few changes give a whole new look and feel. Taking away the netting really opened up your room nicely as well. The whole room looks so pretty, Kelly!
