Here are a few more current bedroom detail shots before I take you on a multi-locale bedroom journey...
For those who have seen our previous rooms, you may notice just a few other new things. We hung new curtains and curtain hardware, and also changed out our lamp shades this time around. Total cost for the "decorating" of this room - curtains, hardware, paint, supplies, lamp shades, etc. - was $260.
Decorating our current master bedroom got me thinking about how the room had evolved through the years (by way of multiple houses). We've kept the same furniture all along, but have chosen different wall colors, bedding, curtains, lamps, and have rearranged accessories to mix it up a bit in each house we've lived in. Always on a strict budget, of course! For us, it's all about maximizing impact with a minor investment.
Now for our Chronicles of Bedroom Decorating...
In our very first master bedroom (6 years ago!) in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma every item was new to us. It looked like this:
Lamp bases, bedding, and the accent wall color were changed when we moved to Baltimore, Maryland. I never took shots of our first apartment there, but this is our itty bitty bedroom in the second place:
(admittedly, I picked the wrong color of blue for the accent wall...lesson learned)
Now, another cross-country move later, we're sporting new curtains, wall color, and lamp shades in Boston, Massachusetts:
No drastic changes, but it's definitely a nice affordable bedroom update. Which of our boudoirs is your favorite so far? Anyone else a frequent mover? Apart from the burden of "moving", we love the new places, faces, and decorating challenges!
