Bedroom Re-Do, take 2

My bedroom makeover is well underway now.  The green headboard has been replaced, new curtain sheers are in place, the side table is being painted and a new duvet cover has been purchased...it's still white though, no change there.

The color scheme I am working around is from a pair of Hot House pillows that were graciously given to me by Kristine over at Living with Style.
 

Now comes the challenge of finding coordinating fabric and curtains on a budget.  I seem to have champagne taste on a beer (think Ice House beer that is) budget.  The beer budget is because I tend to change my mind with the wind. This is the second, or third time I have redecorated my bedroom in two years and its surely not going to be the last.  

The details so far: the head board is navy , the curtain sheers are a bright white, the blue and white striped chair I recovered is in there and the Hot House pillows are in place on the white duvet.  

Now the hunt is on to find curtains- any color suggestions?  

and coordinating fabric for big pillows- any suggestions? 

I also have to finish painting my dressers white, finish the paint treatment I am doing on the side table and to get the room put back together.

I took tomorrow off to get some of this stuff crossed off my list. Am I crazy for doing that?  Yes.  But what can I tell you, I'm a girl obsessed with decorating and will go to great lengths to be able to do it.

Hot House Flowers is so great. And that colorway looks so YOU! I love a stripe with florals, thought about that?

LindsB said...

Jennifer, I totally forgot that my striped chair is in there too! Thanks for the reminder about stripes, I just updated the post with the chair now- thank you!!

Rachel said...

It sounds really good so far! Really crisp with punches of clear colors!!
I'm not sure what to tell you about pillows and curtains.... I would probably wait until I had it all in there to see what I thought it "needed". But at first thought, I'd probably use orange pillows - but that's because I love orange!!! ;-) Maybe orange pillows and navy curtains?

Can't wait to see it all re-done!

You had me at Hot House Flowers! It sounds fantastic! I would throw more color on the bed...bring in orange. Love orange!

Jaime said...

I like that orangey color for other pillows- it'll really pop! :)

LAKEITHA said...

Yeah, I say bring in some orange too! I LOVE that fabric!

Jess said...

I used the same blue striped fabric on a set of french chairs! I love that print! I'm sure it's going to be really a lovely room once all pulled together-- can't wait to see photos!

what a gorgeous cushion, amazing, congratulations!

Abbie said...

My first instinct is to say, "add orange", and I see everyone else agrees! You could also add in some sage green

What about the same color olive that's in the pillows, on the stem?

Staley Mc said...

I love that floral fabric on the pillows! I agree with everyone else saying bring in some orange!

carlee said...

I like it all. Love stripes and florals mixed. And Navy, yum. I'm coming over soon to see it!

Ms. Bright said...

SO many options!
Coral, Peacock, Chartreuse!

Anything you do will look stunning, I'm sure!

Mi Vida Bonita said...

Ohh it all sounds great, i can't wait to see! Ahh I just love home projects!!!

Susie @ Maddie's Nest said...

What a great fabric! I agree that some orange would look great in here!

GracefulElegance said...

I am in love with that pattern...so great! And I adore the nail head trim on that chair!! I am soo stuck on my bedroom right now, one of the rooms we have not tackled yet and it just seems to have a hodge podge of everything and anything in the room!

ashlina said...

:)

Chelsea Talks Smack said...

Wow, i love this!

Emily said...

I heart your striped chair. That pillow also is fabulous with all the colors! Didn't change a thing yet because i'm scared. still owe you an email!

Kristin said...

Meg's more our home decor expert, so no advice from me...but I'm totally diggin' your color palette lady!

Southern Aspirations said...

oooh so excited to see how it turns out! Agree with some orange! and fabulous fabric.

Laura@JourneyChic said...

Well, orange an navy are a great combo, and I know how much you like orange! Large solid orange pillows, perhaps with some blue trim, would look really cool. Just be careful with the shades of blue and orange - you don't want them to look like something from the Syracuse University store! :)

Marija said...

Your plan sounds great - and that fabric is perfect! I predict you keep it this way for awhile this time! Marija
