Before & After: My Bedroom

So, I've got a little makeover for you today! I'm really excited about this one. A few weeks ago, I did a little makeover in my bedroom during a visit at my parents house. The truth is that my bedroom at their house would be my favorite room in the world regardless what the room looked like. There is just nothing like the comfort of my childhood bedroom. But I wanted to update it a bit and make it a little brighter- and my mom gave me the green light to do so. The goal was to create a calm and relaxing little retreat. The room also serves as the main guest room, so I had to keep that in mind as thought of my plans. 

Here is the before. Palm tree city...


And here is the after...







Do you like it?? It turned out exactly like what I had in mind. You know I love neutrals, so I used white and beige with just a touch of black to create the calming look. The table lamp, duvet, quilt, and pillow shams are from Pottery Barn. I accessorized with things I found from TJMAXX, Marshalls, and around the house. I actually stuffed the duvet with the old palm tree comforter and the Euro pillow cases with $9 Euro-sized throw pillows from TJMaxx- two really easy ways to save a few dollars. I still need to decorate the other areas of the room and add photos to the picture frames above the bed, but the bedding and a few accessories were a good start!
