Room Makeover Underway

Although I share a room with a man, I've decided to make the room something I like.Something girly, something soft, something cozy. He won't care as long as it's not over the top so I'm going for it. Here are a few small touches I have picked up or made so far. This is the color I'm going to paint the room. It is a grey-blue and is really soft and pretty, not at all cold.

I don't have any bedding yet. I know I am going about it backwards, but I fell in love with this color when we visted a historic hotel in Victoria, B.C. The room had this paint color and I want my room the same. I'll worry about finding matching bedding later.

Right now I'm working on bringing in accessories. Here are a few pillow ideas I have.

This is a pillow cover I'm making. I finished quilting it tonight and will make it into a slip cover for a throw pillow.

These are some gorgeous handmade hand dyed roses I purchased from Frippelous on Etsy. They came today and are gorgeous, really large and so pretty. They match my pillow cover exactly! I didn't even plan that. I have so many plans for these! I think they would look gorgeous covering a pillow, but since I bought a bunch I may make a few headbands for my girls or brooches for me. So many options!

I purchased these yesterday from freshvintagecrafts on Etsy. I can't wait to get them. I am thinking of sewing them together for another throw pillow cover or string them together to hang on the wall above my bed. I'll have to experiment.

Once I get the pillows finished I'll share pictures with you.
