Kelly's New Room

Kelly's bedroom was in need of an update from the paint on the walls to the bedding.

She wanted a yellow and gray room. It was just what I've been dying to design. We started first with new bedding. We found hers here at Target. It was the perfect subtle pattern of gray and white. I had her get a darker gray bedskirt and Euro shams to accent the bedding. Next, we looked on and found the perfect accent fabric here. The other fabric is sold out, but was my favorite accent in the room.  (The wall paint color is Dolphin Fin from the Behr Ultra Home Depot line.) 

I got the rug and lamps at Ikea for $20 each. They were perfect for the room. The lampshade had a basketweave texture that added another layer to the room. I made her new drapes for the bay window and custom frames for the frame wall.

I've been wanting to do a gallery wall in a bedroom but wanted to add more than just pictures.  I fabric backed the frames and mounted Kelly and Mat's initials.  Then we picked six of her favorite couple photos and framed them in the Ikea Ribba silver frames.  ($9.99 each)  In the center, I found this awesome canvas of a tree with a aqua bird.  I loved the pop of color and added the & sign and the "Love" sign to finish off the idea of the room being a couple's retreat room.  It was so much fun to work with Kelly and do this for her.  I hope she enjoys her new retreat.


  1. This turned out so cute! I love the idea of the framed letters - I might have to use that idea for Mya's room! Great job!

  2. Love it! Really like the framed letter too!
