I've done NOTHING to our master bedroom since we've moved in.
Literally. I've unpacked our clothes. I've put books and a lamp on our side table. The end!
Our bedroom is the biggest cluster of crap that needs to be put away, rugs that don't have a home, two chairs that don't match my current living room decor, a giant container of clothes that don't fit me that I'm too emotionally attached to get rid of.......it's a MESS. Mess is probably an understatement. It's horrible. I don't like being in there, but I'm trying to decorate one room at a time and this room hasn't been high on the priority list. Wanna see why?
My style dilemma came to an end this weekend at TJ Maxx in the form of this gorgeous Cynthia Rowley (didn't pay anywhere near that price that's on the link, btw) comforter and sham set (shout out to my sister Dayna for finding it for me).
Do you hear the Hallelujah Chorus? Because I totally did when she pointed it out. It's perfect. EXACTLY what I've been looking for. Plus, I found these fabulous sheets at Target that just make my heart happy.
They're grey gingam sheets . Another fun fact about me: gingham is my second favorite pattern (anyone know my first favorite??). I've had my eye on these beauties at Target for a hot second. Literally months. Any time I needed to go to Target, I'd walk over to the bedding section and admire them. But I never had a comforter to match them and would tell myself I didn't need them. Then I'd sadly walk away. That ended this weekend! As soon as I bought the comforter, I KNEW I'd be buying these sheets. When I visited Target yesterday, these sheets were on sale (regular $43.99 for a Queen set, marked down to $38.99) AND I had a coupon for 15% Threshold bedding. It was fate.
Side note: while we're talking about bedding, you NEED one of these.
Back to the post: Now that I have pretty sheets and an actual completed look to my bedding, I'm ready to start decorating the rest of my room. Also at TJ Maxx, I picked up a wooden ampersand symbol (&), thinking that I could find a "D" and a "M" to put together and put on our dresser (sweet, right?). It's a minty green and I think the color combination is gorgeous.
Now I'm on the hunt for mint green and yellow and grey! Further inspiration:
Other small snippets of decoration in our house:
Rug in the dining room. It's tiny. I want a bigger one, but I love the design of this one. I'll deal.
Our couch FINALLY came in! When we bought it, the frame was bent, so Corvin's very graciously told us about it and ordered us a brand spanking new one for the clearance price we bought it at. Pumped.
A couple of weeks ago, I posted pictures on Facebook on my living room walls and asked for advice on what kind of rug to get...what color, what pattern, etc.
Navy in the dining room and on a very long wall into the living room and grey on the rest. I like red, but couldn't find any red rugs that just screamed "Buy me! I'll look fabulous in your living room!"
Instead, I found this rug on Target's website. Gasped a little. Fell in love. Bought it. Just got an email that it shipped out today! Cross your fingers it looks good with my decor!!
That's all I have done so far. Maybe in five years, my house will finally be decorated how I want it to be......maybe.
