One of the rooms I was MOST excited to decorate in our new house was our bedroom. David's old bedding was......boy-esque (picture blue and green plaid) and so a BED overhaul was the first project in our bedroom. David was concerned that I would turn the bedroom into a girl's oasis (pink, purple, diamonds etc.) so he was REALLY relieved when we found some awesome bedding at The Bay that was cute and modern without being super feminine. We're both in love with our new bed! :)
Next, we added a ceiling fan to our room. THIS WAS KEY!! We quickly realized that 2 people in a double bed is tight and HOT. Our ceiling fan has been a life saver...especially in the 30+ degree weather we've been having! We shopped around at Home Depot, Canadian Tire and Lowes for ceiling fans and we found that Lowes had the BEST selection of really reasonably priced fans.
Finally, I turned my attention to ART above our bed. I knew that we needed SOMETHING to fill the space, but wasn't sure exactly what I wanted. Some options we considered are pictured below:
BUT THEN.....I stumbled upon THIS bedding!
While it's a little 'much' for BEDDING for my taste, I FELL IN LOVE WITH THE IDEA so I decided to steal the concept for my bedroom art!
After a few trips to Michaels (for frames, Sharpie markers and a roll of white paper) THIS is the result:
