As most of you already know, in January of this year I closed my little inn and took over the entire house. Let me tell you, this has been a huge blessing. I’m loving it. During the past few months, I’ve been slowly making changes to take the house from little inn to my home. You’d think this would be a pretty simple process, but I’ve been really dragging my feet for some reason. Honestly, I think I’m suffering from a case of “I have so much I want to do, that I don’t know where to start, so I’ve barely started at all.” Does that make sense? I’m a little overwhelmed.
Lately, living in a space that is in a state of transition is starting to drive me bananas. So, I’m now putting together a Master To-Do list. If you follow Young House Love, you know that they do something like this, and it seems to be really effective. Hopefully, such a list will provide a starting point for me to get some projects started. Then along the way, I get to share them all with you.
One of the spaces that’s pretty high on my list is my bedroom. I’m not sure if I ever really mentioned this, but what used to be the Garden Suite in my old inn is nowmy bedroom. A few years ago this room got a mini-makeover including paint, curtains, a fun peg rail, and lots more. As much as I love it, I want to inject a few modern elements to make the space look and feel a little more like me. I don’t like to refer to a room as being masculine or feminine (Guys can like flowers and pink, too,), but this space needs less aprons and florals for my taste.
Anyway, I was at Target the other day and picked up a few gold accessories and some frames in hopes of finding some inspiration to get my bedroom changed around.
Gold and I have become BFFs lately, so I was instantly enamoured with this set of lanterns. I seriously want a set for almost every room in my house, but that’s obviously going a little overboard. I also had to have a couple brass animals. I ended up getting the rhino and the elephant. Love them!
Another one of my favorite elements from the Threshold collection is their pillows. Remember the ones I got for my kitchen? Not only are they gorgeous, but the price is perfect. I brought home two of these yellow striped pillows for less than $20 each.
I also want to start incorporating more artwork and photos into my home. Nothing makes a space more personal. So I picked up two frames. The selection of frames was amazing, but I was especially thrilled to find these distressed natural wood frames. Introducing a little natural wood element into a space adds a bit of texture and creates a really homey feel. (And yes, I realize these frames having nothing in them. Oops!)
So, while I have a long way to go (stay tuned for my Master To-Do List), I’m making a little progress and feeling inspired. While I love the Internet, it’s still so very important to get out of the house and find some unique and original inspiration. Don’t you agree?
