A hint of fall in the Master Bedroom!

Hello friends!

I’m sorry it’s been a bit that I have written a blog here! But the wait was worth it, I am so excited to share with you our master bedroom with some added touches of fall:) This is actually the first that I have brought fall decor upstairs, and I don’t regret it!

I am realizing that I am becoming much of a minimalist, which is totally ok! I am so thankful because everything feels and looks so much more simple, clean and bright! So as you can see I added some simple fall decor to our bedroom, and let’s just say it made it so cozy and inviting!!

You may think something else also looks different….. Yes!! We sold our bedroom furniture on Facebook and bought every piece in here for the same amt on amazon! Steal!!!!!!!!! The iron framed bed made for the space to be more open and not so enclosed feeling, and the white nightstands aside created a very clean and bright look! No more chocolate brown in our room! The lamps, accent pillow and area rug all added warm tones to the grey and white, we are loving the mixture! As they all flow together, we are really glad we chose to purchase the grey dresser (matching our side storage unit), and then getting different nightstands in white, it allows for a settle and flowy look, everything isn’t so matchy, matchy. I will be honest though, I had a very tough time deciding if I wanted everything to match or mix , and for those of you who are asking yourself the same question mix it up!!!!!!!!!!!!

Swapping out the old, and bringing in the new!

Honestly, I didn’t originally put too much thought into the curtains in our kitchen, we just found a pattern that went with our wall color and called it a day. After some time though, I began realizing the small curtains were taking something away from the bigger and taller windows, as well as making the small window above the sink feel “more crowded”.  So something needed to be changed!

Before

Being that I am moving towards being a minimalist, and want for a neutral and bright home, it made for an easy decision. So I decided, why not make it easy and add white curtains, so that’s what I did! I purchased these curtains from Walmart (2 panels for $12). They were a little too long, so to add more of a shabby chic look, I folded over the ends, and I now love how they turned out! We added the ring clips to the original rod, and I also love how they look with the simple white curtains! Instantly these new curtains made the space feel more open, showed off the tall windows, and present a clean look!

As for the window above the sink, I took down the rod above the light, and instead bought a $2 tension rod from Walmart, ring clips and added this sweet curtain at the midway of the window. I am so glad we ended up doing this, because it just totally changed the feeling of our space. It also allows more privacy at night by pulling the curtain across. It’s simple and made the window to both feel and look bigger!

That’s all we I did. Nothing to extravagant, just a few tweaks here and there to change up the room by making it brighter and more inviting! Thanks for reading!

A $35 transformation!

Hello! I was so excited to see that drop cloths were coming into trend, They have so many uses…… including being used as curtains and furniture slipcovers! I do not regret this $35 purchase, instead I am bragging about it! We had a hard time finding the right slipcover, because we have reclining furniture, but the drop cloths fixed the problem!

Why did we choose to add slipcovers?

  • We wanted lighter colored furniture
  • Having 2 dogs, they preserve the quality of the furniture

There are many ways to fixate this on your furniture:

  • Using a no sew method and just tucking away, allowing a more flowy look
  • Sewing and having a more fitted look

I purchased these drop cloths from Lowe’s, you can also get them at stores such as: Home depot, ACE, Walmart etc. Click here for the drop cloth products. For our 3 person sofa we used a 9×12, and our love seat we used a 6×9. In store the only sizes they had were: 6×9, 9×12, and 12×15. Depending if you want a more fitted look vs flowy look that will determine what size you will purchase.

I wanted that flowy look, so it was easy peasy for us!  After washing the cloths we placed evenly on each piece of furniture so that the cloth went JUST to the floor, and then started tucking away.

I highly recommend this to all! It easily gives that farmhouse look, changes the feel of the room, is easy care, and most important it’s SO affordable!!
