I have been so excited about this bedroom change in our home. I always like the back guest bedroom, but something about it felt too country and dated to me. I wanted an updated, yet still vintage look. I also wanted more patterns and color. Here is what the room looked like before:
How many of you love Anthropologie? Now, how many of you love the prices in Anthropologie? Neither do I! Everytime I go in there I leave feeling a little sad because I love everything so much and can only buy one tiny candle for 50.00. A tip that I have learned while decorating our house is to splurge on the focal points. The quilt in this room is something that I splurged on at Anthro. I did not want to get rid of it because I love it so much and it was pricey, so I worked it into the new room. It is amazing how one quilt can have two totally different looks in one room. The other piece in here that I have had forever is the blue armoire, however it was not always blue. It used to be just sitting in the basement in an ugly brown stain. I painted it for the beach, but we ended up not having the right spot for it. So, we brought it home for this room and I love it! I just finished the room this morning, and wanted to share some pictures. The only thing I am waiting on are some more egg print pictures so that I can take up the whole side of the wall with a framed egg print collage. I am going to detail where I found everything in case something catches your eye! Here is the reveal!
