Since moving into our new home, I have been on decorating over-drive. Because I can’t really enjoy shopping for clothes these days, I have been pouring all of my creative energy into finding the perfect decor scheme for each room of our home. Of course, decorating can be costly, and I am trying to find the right balance of saving money while having luxurious taste. In order to achieve the look for less, I always go on to my favorite retail sites and find items that I love. Then, I go onto savings websites like Amazon, Wayfair, and Overstock to find similar items at a fraction of the price. It really is a hobby of mine! I love to find items on sale or exact matches for way less.
Our bedroom now is pretty bland. We have a white bedspread with white pillows, NO curtains at all, and no rug (I’ll show off some before pictures for the big reveal in a later post). BORING. I wanted a few pops of color to add to the room, and lately I am loving navy. To be honest, too many colors eventually annoy me and I end up hating them, so I try to stick to a lot of neutrals.
Our bedroom is painted a beautiful light grey color, so I wanted to incorporate a little gray, too. I started planning with this rug, and we only need a 4×6 because of the small space we have, so I was able to get it for under $65 (make sure to sign up for a 10% off coupon!). And these airy curtains have the perfect hint of gray with the cute little tassels. Because I wanted the pillows to really pop on our white bed, I decided on rich navy and the textured gray and pink pillow. Also, because we won’t actually be using these pillows other than for decoration purposes, I think it is OK to get less expensive pillows because they don’t really have to hold up to wear and tear.
Now I need to figure out what is going to go over our bed. We have an oddly placed small window that our headboard partly covers, so the focus will be off-center, which will most likely annoy the Type-A in me. I am thinking about this boho tapestry – I found one on West Elm that I loved for $150, and this one is $30 SOOOO the choice is obvious.
Stay tuned for a final reveal in a few weeks! Please let me know if you have any suggestions – I always need decor advice!
