Take a peek...


at my new room...

I switched rooms this past weekend! My step dad painted it a light gray...

I changed comforters to my down feather comforter, with a white and gray duvet cover (ikea). I bought deep purple sheets (Although they look black for some reason in this picture) to go with it! and I am deeply in love! To top off the look, I turned a full length mirror on its side to go above my bed! I think it added a little something to the look!

I had my step dad leave the doors off the closet, and turned it into my office.

I painted an old desk a light purple, and accessorized with deep purple office supplies.I'm planning on purchasing some purple of gray curtains to cover the "office" when I'm not using it and to hide some of my storage!

I grouped family pictures in different black frames with my white shelves. I added some of my antique cameras to the shelves. I love how this turned out!

Of course my room wouldn't be complete without my vanity and bag of MK make up! :)

One of my favorite touches of the room is this picture frame:

It was going unused, until I used a little creative magic. I spray painted the picture frame purple, and framed some light purple scrap book paper! Now I use it as a memo board by writing on the glass with wipe of markers! I can add little notes, and then wipe it off when I want to change it up! Perfect for quotes or big reminders!

I liked my old room, but LOVE my new room!

It feels so light, airy, and clean! Its definitely the retreat that I need at the end of a long day!

Very Nice!!!! I covered a closet like that once. I used fancy cabinet drawer pulls (they have so many cool styles to choose from, this was a kids room so I used stainless steel butterflies and dragonflies), screwed them in the wall (with a double ended screws, ask the guys at HD what size you would need) and hung tab top curtains off of them. I used another set of pulls for tieback holders. I also got a few more matching pulls and some wire and hung pictures from them. It was fun and different. Love the colors here!! And the mirror...genius!!
