I am so excited to reveal my bedroom to you all….this may be my favorite room of all!
When I first started looking around the internet for ideas on house decor, one thing that I was immediately drawn to was chevron stripes. There were so many different ways to use them, and they made such a bold statement. I was especially drawn to using the chevron pattern for curtains, and I found lots of awesome pictures of rooms that did so. Unfortunately, every chevron fabric that I liked was WAY out of my price range, but then I stumbled upon Kristen F Davis’s design blog. She has a tutorial on her blog that shows how to paint curtains with a chevron pattern, which is completely awesome! Here are how my DIY painted chevron curtains turned out:
Next, we decided to make a custom headboard using plywood, foam, and fabric from West Elm. We also bought a new gray and white striped (LOVE my stripes!) duvet cover from West Elm, which matched all of the pillows we had from our old duvet set.
I also decided I really wanted to make my accent wall pop with one of my other favorite colors, orange. We spray painted lamps that we already had orange. I also painted orange chevron stripes on a white tissue holder. I then found Etsy seller JModern and asked her to create some custom, modern artwork for me. I must say, she did a fabulous job, and her art turned out to be the fun, bold statement I so badly wanted!
Also, I’m such a dork, I found a dog bed for Zoey that nicely coordinated with everything!!
Have an awesome weekend everyone!!
