Bedroom Basics

Happy Wednesday!

Before we break out all the red white and blue for our annual Independence Day blowouts, let's cover something that happens more than you would think.  You move into your new apartment right after graduation and you are faced with one problem.  Your walls are white.  Can I paint them? Well, not in most cases. When dealing with this ever so typical issue, I have four items that can quickly disguise this issue without breaking the bank!
1. Colorful Bedspread/ Color theme for bedding
2. Coordinating color window curtains
3. Medium to Large sized Rug
4. Large wall decor piece

Keeping with the Pantone color of the day "Shell Coral", I chose a rustic coral arrangement as an example!  The venetian bedspread and 5' round rug are from World Market.  You can find the window curtains at West Elm, and the metal wall art from Kirklands.

Don't be afraid to play with materials and mix and match different textures! After all, that's one of the many things that keeps the fun in design!
