Change Your Room Instantly and Easily

I have been really content with my house.  I have it basically decorated the way I want, I have it painted throughout, yet I still have room for those things that I might run across that “I need.”

Even though I am happy I decided that it was time for a little change.

We have a canopy bed, which I love, but I have always wanted to add curtains too it like you see in magazines and such.  Not wanting to shop and being on a tight budget, I decided to shop my house.

Here you can see our bed with our Restoration Silver Sage walls (yes, they are blue even though the color is silver sage) and chocolate brown ceiling.  I do love our bedroom!!

I knew I had off white curtains tucked away.  What I had forgotten about was I also had white curtains tucked away.  I have been thinking of this for months now, not knowing I had these.

I took the curtains and added them to the front corners and it completely softened the whole bed. Loved it!

Then I saw this done in a movie and ran home and changed it to this.

So tell me, which do you like better?  I will put in the comments the one I chose and why.

  1. I chose the first option, with the curtains straight down. I liked the 2nd one, but a little too much for me.

  2. Not me, I like the second one better. I do think if you go that way you need to move the picture over the bed though.

  3. I like the second one too, Amy. I think the curtains pulled off to the side soften up the otherwise sharp angles of the bed.

  4. It’s funny but the second one seems so “girly” to me. I actually still have them that way to see what my husband has to say about it. I really liked it when I saw it in a movie that way, but I guess I just like the plain way better. I know, I funny that way. 🙂

  5. I like it with the curtains straight down, simple but soft.
