Years ago (back in 2009) while my little sister, Daniela was away on a business trip I took the opportunity to re-do her bedroom at my parents house from this:
With $500 I updated the room and made it more fitting for her. You can see the full reveal here, but here is a little peek:
It’s been this way for years now and in that time my sister moved out to her first apt (see her budget friendly living room design here), moved to London for graduate school and then moved back home while searching for a job. Said job was found and she is currently still living there while she saves up $$$ for her next apt.
So, I decided it was time to give that bedroom a new updated look. I want to leave the paint color the same and work with a lot of the same pieces, but move things around a bit and go with a new color story for the space.
Here is my jumping off point:
The kantha throw was what started it all. I stumbled upon it at Century 21 and was a steal at $40. I couldn’t stop thinking about the pattern on it so, I went back the next day and bought it. I didn’t have a client that needed it and I didn’t need it in my own home so I decided it’s time to re-do Daneila’s room again and use this as my inspiration.
The fabric finds where steals from the Duralee Outlet and I was lucky enough to get a beautiful new patterned duvet from Crane & Canopy called Larkin. New lighting has arrived, a new dresser has been sourced, and I’m designing a new headboard as I type.
Can’t wait to get it all done and show you all the new look! Stay Tuned.
