More bedroom evolution.
(please excuse another quick iPhone shot!  I keep saying I'm going to learn how to take better photos - and yet Instagram is just so easy - and hides a lot of flaws! You can follow me at MrsR)

We lived with the red walls for exactly one year, and then we repainted with a custom blend that started with BM's Pebble Creek, but had the lavender toned down and the grey pumped up.  I have loved it every day for the last year and a half!  Its constantly changing depending on the light - from smokey and moody to soft and pretty.

The little mid-century desk I found at Goodwill for only $25!  I'm still waiting to come across the perfect chair to accompany it.

The curtains are simple (and inexpensive) Ikea panels.  I added the lovely crewel trim to the leading edges and now I think they look so much more expensive!  I have a fabric roman shade arriving from my seamstress in the next few days and I'm excited to get that window all layered and feeling even more luxe. 

I can't take full credit for the art - the inspiration came from here but now I really want to get a large print of my horse photography for that space.  I'm thinking like 3'x3' or something equally dramatic! (I'm thinking either the fifth or sixth ones down - the "nose shots")  Thoughts?

My headboard got a little makeover today...
 Hope your 4th was equally exciting!
