I’ve been scrolling through a TON of pictures these past few weeks and keep stumbling across a lot of great pictures that I’ve never shown on the blog, so I thought I would take a minute to share a few photos of 卡森’s parents master bedroom.
I helped 卡森’s Mom pull some things together for this room over a year and a half ago. The reason that I wanted to show you these photos, besides the fact that the bedding and accessories are just really cute :)…is because I think this very simple bedroom restyle really touches well on a few points that I want to talk about today.
So often we’re saturated in an internet world of amazing, magazine&Pinterest worthy, epic room remodels. For most of us it’s not always possible to spend thousands of dollars and countless hours just to give our bedroom a little bit of a face lift, or updating when it needs it.
Am I right?
I know I sound a bit hypocritical, because I’m always trying to achieve that“perfect look”for our home, but to be honest, it’s part of my “job”and also the reason why a LOT of you even come around these parts in the first place -
话虽如此，我经常收到读者发来的电子邮件，内容如下： “I don’t have a huge budget, or the talent to put together an entire room, but I really want to makeover my _________. Do you have any advice for someone like me? I’m not sure where to start!”
I TOTALLY get it. I tend to feel the same way a lot of the time, hence the reason that it takes us SO LONG to finish projects! （缺乏预算和设计 困境/犹豫不决）。 So today I thought I’d share just a few quick tips on how you can create a brand new look in your bedroom, with just a couple of simple, quick changes!
新的床上用品将比其他任何东西更快地改变您房间的整体外观。我知道有人说’s倒退，但我总是先选择床上用品，然后再选择油漆颜色。 I will admit, I’当涉及到床上用品时，我是相当花钱的。我不’在这方面捏几分钱。对于我们大多数人来说，风景优美的床是人们进入卧室时首先看到的东西，所以我的建议是，获取您真正想要和想要的东西。 （无论’s $40 or $400) Budget for a bedspread, comforter, or quilt that you will be really happy with and that will last for a LONG time! 唐’t settle for something that you just“sorta” like, （因为它是打折的或便宜的）. Your bedroom should be one of your most favorite spaces in your home. A place where you can relax, unwind and that also speaks volumes about your personal style. You can’t put a monetary value on that.
If you’re on a budget, but still want a high-end look with your bedding, try covering the main part of your bed with a less expensive solid colored quilt, and then use a smaller quilt or nice decorative blanket just on the end, to pop the whole look! Sometimes a smaller dose of pattern has a bigger effect -
2. Accent with Color
如果可以的话，这尤其重要’t or don’不想粉刷墙壁。一旦您’我们选择了您的配色方案，然后为您的房间找了几块，可以用来突出空间的视觉趣味。您也可以在这里省钱。重新设置灯头的用途，然后购买新的灯罩，或者缝制…套用新面料的旧椅子，并在您的房间中创建一个可以用作“relaxing zone”.
I’ve noticed that rooms tend to feel more comfortable and inviting when there’s actually specific spaces designated to just… hanging out! 卡森’s Mom told me that she couldn’t believe how much more time she spent in her room after we bought this comfy red gingham chair, because now she actually had somewhere to sit, besides her bed!
Remember when accenting with color, that you don’t have to go super crazy, if you don’t want to. If committing to a red chair and yellow lamp base scares you, then pick neutrals, and accent with more“interchangeable”items, like we did in this corner below. If you take away the yellow and red, you’re left with pretty much white furniture that can go with anything!
您是否曾经尝试过复制房间设计，并最终想到… “This doesn’甚至没有真正为我工作！” I’有很多人说… “I can’不要相信您的客厅里有一个白色的沙发，家里有3个小孩！”我只需要笑，因为对我来说，这从来都不是问题。我不’t know if it’我的孩子都是女孩，因此比戏剧更有趣… or that I’如果他们甚至想将食物带到厨房之外，就会把对上帝的敬畏带给他们 (ha!)…但是无论出于什么原因，我们的沙发 （除了洗完澡后可能会掉出来的一些肮脏斑点，因为一切’s slip-covered) 真的很干净！我的观点？… 唐’只是装饰房间使其漂亮，请记住您仍然必须住在这里！
卡森’s Mom wanted a spot where her and 卡森’s爸爸可以很快坐下来，早上在鞋柜旁边放鞋，所以我们找到了这把小巧的白色椅子，为他们创造了空间。对您来说，可能需要一个书架，一个电视架，甚至只是一个额外的存储柜。我保证有一个“cute/beautiful”解决方案几乎可以满足任何类型的需求，如果您只花时间四处寻找想法，获得创意并跳出框框思考！
或此目的 TV 控制台，用于存储多余的少女配件！
For 卡森’s parents bedroom, we didn’t pull up carpet, repaint or even spend lots of money on new bedroom furniture. We just worked with what we had, and really pulled most of this room together in about a day.
So I have good news, bad news, but then REALLY good news!
Good news: I finally found an online store that sells the Dottie Quilt Collection from my last post on easy bedroom restyling.
Bad news: 我可以’找不到黄色！ r但是如果你去 this link here 有粉红色，蓝色和绿色… also VERY pretty 🙂
REALLY good News: The Dottie quilts that they DO carry are RIDICULOUSLY inexpensive. I may or may not have paid like twice the price for mine. ugh. lol.
UPDATE UPDATE: (yup, 我可以 do that) hee hee
您可以找到黄油（yellow) Dottie quilt here at this link, 但它’价格大约是其他商店的两倍。
