A Bedroom Face Lift


For a while I was saying in my Monthly Goal Posts that I was going to tackle our bedroom and redo it.
Well, I stopped putting that in my goals post because I was just not getting around to it and was sick of making myself feel guilty about it.

But I am back on the bandwagon with it now.
The inspiration is the above bedroom from who else but the amazing Centsational Girl
I actually found this same duvet at Bed Bath and Beyond


Its the one folded at the foot of the bed.
And fell in love with it.
For the longest time I couldn't find anything I liked until I ran across this one.

I was sold.
Now, I can give the room a face lift around it.
I must have that mirror.
Its so stunning.
I ran into Marshall's last week on my lunch break and saw one almost identical to it.
I think I might have to go back and get it.
It makes the room in my opinion.


I also must have this bowl.
I know its something small but look at that print.
Freaking perfection!

I also want to do a slipcover over our headboard.
Something kinda like this...

But in a print that will coordinate with the duvet.
I am really loving chevron print so maybe a chevron??
Might be too busy though?
We shall see.

I ran across this Color Palette Generator
On Serenity Now Blog and think it would be perfect to use in my bedroom face lift.

I can just upload the picture from Centsational Girl's bedroom redo and get my own colors.

You can get the full rundown of how to use the Color Palette Generator from EAK! A House
It looks like you can use it for a number of different project.
Might be a good link to keep handy.

So, in the meantime, I need to order the duvet and get cracking on my bedroom face lift.
I cant wait to see the end result!

I LOVE These. I have had a very strong chevron addiction going on right now. Maybe because of Pinterest? I think so. I love the color generator, I may have to play with that.
I can't wait to see your room once you are done with it - it's going to look awesome!!!
