College Girl
Bedroom Refresh

Time for a little room update for my newly minted college girl!

P1070700Orange has been the color since late middle school.

I am starting with this Eileen Kathryn Boyd wisteria geometric fabric.  It has a nice variety of purple shades.  It picks up the gray of her rug and has enough navy to use an accent color.  I’m using it for two big 22″ x 22″ pillows on her bed.

I love this Duralee amethyst fabric for an additional 18″ x 18″ bed pillow, finished with a fun Kravet fringe trim.

Keeping the bed frame, but replacing the curtains with a horizontal navy stripe and new Pottery Barn bedding with a navy trim.

I think I will paint the walls Benjamin Moore #1404 Crocus.  What do you think?

Two clear glass lamps with white shades will replace the orange lamps.

Her bureau is an old family relic.  Should I replace it or just switch out the knobs?
