If you would like to see what my room looked like before, visit my YouTube Channel for the before video here: http://www.youtube.com/user/MakingSweetCreations?feature=mhum#p/u/3/kiM1GrIcqPs
These are some of my "after" photos of the room. Basically I have had the same linens for quite a few years and I thought it was time for a change. I actually find comfortable bedding difficult to find. I like something that is washable and soft and more simplistic in color and design.
I browsed websites and went to our enormous Bed, Bath, and Beyond to have a look but nothing caught my eye. Last week at Target I decided to look at their Fieldcrest Luxury line of bedding they always carry and I loved the colors they had. High thread counts, simple and modern colors, and washable! I teetered back and forth between a gray color scheme with yellow, gray, and white pillows but decided to stick with the spa blue colors since I already had curtains of that color. I mixed the gray and blue together and found that to be a satisfying compromise.
In the photo shows my lamp shades before I switched them out. I am loving the extra large silver metallic euro throw pillow which is now on clearance by the way! I paid $40 for it and went to Target just last night and they marked them down to $27. I have learned to always carry my receipts for a while, so I was able to get a price adjustment.
Below is the updated lamp shades. They are the large white modern drum shades from Target. I may eventually switch out the base, but honestly it is totally fine for a while. I would like to find some small mirrors to place behind the lamps on the wall and some silvery accessories. I will come across accessories eventually.
