Bedroom mini makeover

I was thinking that our bedroom was "done" in terms of decoration, but then I realised that it was only actually "done" when we were in the UK:

But after a couple of moves and a different headboard, it was really just looking very bland, boring and tired:

Cue me squealing, "Project!" (name that movie...)

I decided I wanted to inject a little personality and interest into our bedroom, but on a budget and without changing the wall colour or curtains - they are to be left as is because we are renting. Here is what I came up with:

  1. I love your makeover. That room really pops now. Is that cover as bright an orange as it looks in the picture? I love, love love it!

  2. Wow! Jen, it looks fabulous! I love the fabric you found for the pillow on the bed, it really does tie in all the colors just like you wanted :D xxx

  3. Your quote is from "Clueless," one of the best flicks ever and one of my absolute faves. Hee. I think your room looks great! Just enough punch to make it feel different. Isn't it funny how something that once felt done, can then feel do bland later! I need to do my room. Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. Do you ever worry about the pictures falling off the walls while you are sleeping. This is not my worry, but the husbands. So we have nothing above our bed! UGH
