After we moved in, our bedroom was a bit sad looking. Please ignore the unmade bed and the grittiness of these photos!! I took them on my Blackberry for the sole purpose of showing some friends, and I didn’t plan to share them here. But then I realized I didn’t have any “before” photos on my digital camera, so here you go:
As you can see, not a lot going on. Over the past two weeks we picked up some gray sheets from Target, and some curtains and a sheepskin throw from Ikea. It makes me feel a little icky that we bought real sheepskin instead of faux, but Tony really loved it and it was a good price, so I caved. It does look pretty good, I have to admit!
We also hung a mirror (a Craigslist find that we painted black!) and two shelves above the dresser. Hey look, I even make a cameo appearance in this one!
I’m starting to love the way the room is turning out. But it still needs a pop of color, which is where etsy comes in. The general color scheme will be gray and yellow. We’re going to choose four of these prints to hang above the bed, but we’re still debating which four to get. I love the “Love Lives Cozy Here” picture because I think it’s so fitting for a bedroom, but Tony doesn’t like pictures with words on them.

We’re also going to order two of these super fun throw pillows for the bed, also from Etsy. I love these because they incorporate gray and yellow, but also throw in a splash of blue and green.
I’m super excited to see how the room comes together once we add the wall art and throw pillows. Yay, color!
