Bedroom Update

Since we've moved into this apartment my focus has really been on the main living areas.  Our bedroom has really been neglected--so I've been working on making it a more complete space that is actually inviting and somewhere we would want to spend time in.

Here's what the bedroom looked like about a month or so ago...

Here's our new space...

I updated these great yard sale lamps and made some new pillow shams (tutorials for both projects will be posted soon)!  I felt like the matching duvet cover and shams were way too matchy-matchy and I wanted to add some extra pattern and color.  I really love the addition of a geometric pattern--I think it adds interest and makes the bed look a little less girly.  I also recently posted about my nightstand update (here) and free dresser makeover (here).

I also found these great new pots ($3 each, I love Goodwill!) for our plants that add a bit of color and interest

I finally feel like our bedroom feels like a real, grown-up bedroom--not just a room that's been thrown together.

What do you think of my bedroom update?

  1. It does look all grown up, and like you'd want to jump in and be all snuggly! Very nice job!
