Cory and I have been in our home for a year now, and as most parents, we have put all of our focus into our newborn's room and have neglected our own. So, as of late, it has been my goal to create a soft, warm, and relaxing place for us to retreat to at the end of a long day. We had a few pieces of rich, antique furniture that we inherited with the house from Grandma Korreckt.
To compliment these pieces, I searched High and Low until I found a headboard. I'm a Joss and Main addict; if you are not a member, check it out here and sign up for daily deals: http://www.jossandmain.com/invite/91EB68. They had a Tufted event, and here is what I found....
We are LOVING our tufted headboard!!
I thought of attempting my own, but with GREAT prices like you find at Joss and Main it wouldn't have been worth my time.
My windows are only 36" wide. I found these drapes at Ikea and hung them at 90" high and 72" wide to create height and width to the space. I love how doing this accentuated the natural high ceilings of our home. I intend on doing this in all of our rooms. I also added the stick blinds as an additional texture to this space. It really added more warmth, allowing the natural light to seep in.
Harper's side of the room.....for now!!
New candlesticks from Ikea!!
Things I need to finish this room:
- I'd like to decide on a paint color; I'm leaning towards a light moss. I just want something versatile and neutral.
- An area rug for under the bed. Something with a traditional print might would be nice, or a grass rug for more texture that would compliment my monochromatic color scheme.
- A new light fixture
- Lamps for the night stands
- Perhaps mirrors to hang behind the night stands???
We are really enjoying turning in here at the end of the day!
