After browsing through pinterest for ideal bedrooms, you have to get realistic. We can’t all afford to have Phoebe Howard come design our bedroom, can we? I am a newbie to all this, trying to design a space on my own in a cohesive way. I pretty much used to use what was handed down to me or something that I found on sale at Target. I realize now, that it is easy to find an accessory or piece of furniture here or there that I love, but the tricky part selecting things I love that can all live in one room harmoniously. How to make sure the colors, tones and patterns of things I love will work together seems the trickiest part. But, I have to start somewhere. I started a hunt for reasonably priced accents and additions to complement my existing furniture in some of the color tones I like. Here are some of my initial findings.
01//Caitlin Wilson Hong Kong Fabric
02//Dot & Bo Awakening Dahlia Pillow Cover
03//West Elm Mongolion Lamb Pillow Cover
04//West Elm Elton Setee in Lotus Pink Linen
05//Urban Outfitters Gold Side Table
06//Serena and Lily Coral Herringbone Throw
Doing this post, made me realize that I have some more work to do to narrow down what I want. I’ve got some more hunting and researching ahead of me. In the meantime, I am seriously getting a hankering to make something. So keep an eye out for a project soon!
