Dream rooms really DO come true!


Well, I am officially moved in to my new space! It took the greater part of 48 straight hours to do all of the moving, heavy lifting (mostly on my dad and brothers’ end), last minute furnishings shopping, unpacking, and of course setting it all up to look just the way I dreamt it.

When I began planning my room, I first went to all the great sites mentioned in my More, more decor! post, with only small ideas of what I was looking for. Basically, I wanted it to be completely different than my room last year, and certainly different than my room at home; with dragonflies on the ceiling, stray stuffed animals, and a bedspread that completely clashes, that room is a splendid blend of 8-year-old me and 16-year-old me, two girls with very different ideas of “style.” I wanted my room to be calming yet energizing, clean and classic, and include some subtle touches of boho. Most importantly, I needed it to be ORGANIZED. That is the most important factor in staying stress-free, confident, and productive– all of which are my main goals for this year.

After initial online browsing, I came up with a color scheme: varied shades of teal blue, dark grays, and pops of lime green. From there, my mom and I hit up all the go-to spots ie. Homegoods, Target, Bed Bath & Beyond.

Sooo, at long last, here is the final product!

(drumroll……)

My larger dresser with a framed fabric pinboard. I plan to use this for style inspo as well as a reminder board.

My nook! Includes desk area for homework and sewing, dress form, makeup bag (the window's natural sunlight is perfection), and crawlspace for storing ugly stuff.

My smaller dresser and closet. I hung my hats around my closet door as wall art!

Oh hey.

Oh hey.

Truly true. This is my mantra for the year, hung right where I can see it every morning!

My bed is perhaps my favorite part. It is a queen, so I had to turn the bed lengthwise against the wall to open up space. With plenty of plush bedding, it turned out to be like a couch bed! I hung the curtains behind it for an extra unique pop in the room.
