BEFORESo I went on a mission. I happened to stumble across a duvet cover on clearance at Target. Score! And that's where my color scheme was born. Plum and Gray. Is it Gray or Grey? What's the difference, I never know? Anyway, while the bedding was taken care of I still needed a bed skirt and that became quite challenging. After a month of trying to find one that matched my colors exactly I went with this natural beige color. I loved the flowy sheer fabric and I decided that the beige would be a nice addition. It helped add to some of that romantic quality I was going for. I found it on Amazon. I think it's called Voile.
I purchased the duvet, throw pillows, sheets, vase, lamp, Do Not Disturb sign, and Cafe painting. Everything else I found around the house.
Dried Hydrangeas, my favorite.
A Mother of Pearl candelabra hangs behind the bed.
A painting that a dear friend of mine made and gave me.

I had a lot of fun doing this room up. If I could have painted it would have been magnificent I promise. But, we rent :(. My main focus was to be accommodating while keeping the room simple and romantic. Now I just need some guests, so if your ever in the general North Carolina area...
