My Home Renovation: The Study

So I haven't done a post in a while due to the fact that I just bought a new home. A three bedroom with a basement that has an additional room that could be a master. It's been rough moving in (and fun at the same time) as the house was a foreclosure and empty for over a year..which means I had to do a ton of cleaning and updates to the electric and plumbing. I finally got my electricity turned on so now I'm back to blogging :) I've got tons of projects I've got to tackle so I'll be posting before and after photos of my progress.

These next shots were taken of my study. Most of the items were purchased at IKEA and the curtains were given to me by my Mom which she bought at a thrift shop. The floral piece was also given to me by my Mom and is something I remember having in our home when I was a child. I'm going to spray paint it white except for the flower buds which will make it pop against the yellow wall. Also threw in one of my little man enjoying his new

Liam loves his new room :D
This is the new couch I got. It's sooo soft and looks expensive, but wasn't :)

Glamorous Bedrooms

Thought I'd share with you a few glamorous bedrooms I found as inspiration for my bedroom.

Pale blue and beige rooms create a calm and relaxing atmosphere:
This circle mirror gave me an idea for a DIY project:
Purple and lavender rooms mix well with touches of light grey and pale blue. These rooms were accessorized with black furnishings:
Black, white and yellow rooms look chic and sophisticated:
Neutral with pops of red and purple:
Warm wall colors cozy up these spaces:

Over the top Glam. This room is fit for a royal princess:

Kids Forest Theme Room

I've been driving myself crazy trying to come up with a design for my sons room and I finally decided on a forest theme with lots of owls and deers all over. I did this collage up in Polyvore. It's a great way to visualize how items will look together, and something I've found indispensible when it comes to decorating.
