Just When You Think You’ve Finished A Room…

You realize, you haven’t.  A few weeks ago, Mandi from Vintage Revivals (one of my all-time favorite blogs) wrote this great post about what happens when something you’ve decorated isn’t quite ‘right’.  It can be so frustrating when you’ve put so much time and energy into a space, but you’re still not in love with it.  I totally know the feeling!

After I finished my son’s room last month, I still wasn’t happy with his bed nook.  The colors were just wrong, and it didn’t blend well with the rest of his room.

If you missed it, here is what it looked like:

However, I had just spent a month on this project and had a queue of other rooms in my house to tackle.  So, I tried moving things around a bit.

Here’s what I ended up with:

Clintonsroom4First, I removed the motorcycle poster and postcards and replaced them with the fox print. This was actually the spot where I had planned to hang the print at the very beginning, so I suppose I should have just trusted my instincts.

Clintonsroom3Then I made some new bunting using leftover felt that I had, plus a pillow from the remaining chair fabric.


And this is what the adjacent wall looks like now:


I’m happier with it, but I’m still itching to paint those horrible walls white.  What do you think? Is this an improvement?  Leave a comment in the box below or by clicking the link at the top of the post!

    I love his nook. I loved it even before the changes, but if you felt something was off, then you had to change it. I totally get it:”. However, great job!
