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!
