When we moved into our house almost 3 years ago, I wanted to paint my room yellow. Unfortunately, I was talked into painting it some green color that I really don’t care for. As such, I have never bought matching bedding or really hung any pictures. But I am ready for a change! I am going to try to do this over the summer, so I am just in the planning stages at this point.
I am wanting to keep the decorating cost to $50 + whatever I can sell from my current décor (bedpreads, art, etc.). This is going to be the most challenging part about this project.
Here is what I am thinking for the paint color:
I am wanting a pinkish grayish tone. Something I can build on. I want it to be sophisticated, but able to work with a lot of different tones of pink too.
(although I really like the paint colors in almost all the pictures)
This wall color is really nice too! I am not sure what it is though, some sort of really pale pink. (I like the color in the picture with the daybed with the pink sheets as well)
I have posted a tutorial for this in the past. I think it is from kojodesisgns. I saw the inspiration at Anthropologie yesterday and liked it a lot. The only thing I am worried about is the balled up parts being too hard.
There is a tutorial for this Anthro inspired bedspread here. I like the ruffles on it. And it would be a lot softer than the other option. I could make this for cheap too from sheets on clearance. And that will keep the cost down as well! If I can make it as a button-on cover that will go over a down comforter I will be extra happy! That way I could wash it easily too!
I am not sure what I will do for art yet. I want to be able to put some bold pieces in there too, but keep it sophisticated as well.
I will most likely be getting some crisp white furniture (I don’t have any right now). I also have a pink rug, and a bunch of frames that I need to use. I would also like to paint my sewing room, which is attached to my bedroom either a bright pink color or some other inspiring color. I also need to think about curtains for my windows and curtains to separate my sewing room from the rest of the room. I am excited!
(I am not sure where I got all these images, if they are your pictures and you want credit, just let me know and I will be glad to give it to you!!)
