Do you ever notice that when spring and summer comes around, we are all ready to refresh our homes? Even colors need to be changed to change the mood we are feeling.
I decided that I wanted to change the colors of my bedroom to a more spring/summer look. Although I show a lot of vintage inspired furniture around here, my bedroom is a more European/contemporary feel. I like mixing things and I appreciate all styles.
My bedroom walls are beige and there is a lot of black in the furniture and fabrics I chose. The winter color I use is red. Now I want a blue!
I started with the curtains. I had a maroon valance with gold rope fringe hanging. The are very fancy, heavy and dramatic. They look great around the holidays but I wanted a clean line. Instead of a color I kept the neutral pallet of black and beige. I just went with pattern and texture.
I will accent later with blue in my bedspread and accessories. I like having a neutral pallet because I can change colors anytime I want without a high cost.
This is what I had before
It is hard to get good pictures shooting into a window but hopefully you will see the change.
I will use probably use this again somehow so I removed them and stored them. I kept the bottom panels because I love the texture.
I bought one panel from Target. I cut it in half after measuring how many inches I wanted my drop to be.
They were 1x6 boards. I used store bought panels because the edges were already sewn. This let me staple the pieces to the board. Remember I didn't want anything fancy just a straight edge. I could always add trim if I wanted later.
After I stapled fabric on the top of the board I did my corner so the material would wrap around the board.
I attached the board on the L shape brackets that were already there and for a few dollars and little time I was done!
Now I will have more money for the rest of the room! Time to add my color!!!
