Lighten Up

Anyone else watching the Oscars?  

I'm catching the tail-end while writing up this post.  It's been a busy weekend, but I did have a little bedroom update to share with you all.  Chances are you've seen my cheesy Tour My House videos, so you've probably seen that right now my master is looking a little dark and dumpy.

Well, on Friday, my friend Jana and I made a lunch-break adventure to Ikea and I decided to pick up a duvet cover to lighten things up.

Here's what the bed used to look like:

But, with a little help from my new friend, Karit ($39.99, Ikea)...

...my bed now looks like this...

Lot's of photo's, I know.  I just really like it when a simple change makes such a positive impact in a room...especially for less than $50.00!

The throw that you see at the end of the bed is actually just a scrap of fabric that I found at Savers for $8.00.  It's about three-yards of fabric that I plan to use for a few projects throughout the room.  I just love the cream-on-cream against the green walls.

If you don't remember, here is my inspiration board for the master bedroom...

You can see that I'm going for a very surreen look in this space.  As for the status...I'm making slow progress, but this is definitely a step in the right direction.

Has anyone else made some simple changes that made a big impact in your room?  What were they?  I hope you all enjoy the Oscars.  Who else thinks Brad Pitt looks much better without the long hair?  Regardless, he's still eye-candy!  Ha!

Hi there!

I was looking for some way to update my bedroom, found your photos and loved them so much that I pinned them on my board.


Lots of impact for the money spent! I love your ideas but I also like that you also would like to see Brad grow his hair longer just one..more..time....sigh... :-)
