Room Pin-spiration

Happy Friday the 13th!

Now that winter has hit, the holidays are over, & I’m spending more time inside my house I’ve realized its time to start working on the decor again. We’ve lived there for almost 3 years & all the rooms have their main elements. Furniture is  done, the walls are all painted, & the layout is complete (small rooms make that easy).

I feel like most of our rooms though are missing a little something. Rugs are needed, curtains might need to go up, & smaller touches can be added.

Adding to my new found obsession are these design blogs:

So where to begin?

I’ve been looking at inspiration to spruce up the bedroom. The only problem is that in the (hopefully near) future we’ll be getting a new bed & then new linens, so I’m limited on how radically to change the room.

But I have started an inspiration board on Pinterest to get an idea of how I want the final room to look, then see what I can add in for now:

White linens with pops of bright colors in preppy designs, clean lines with the bedside tables (already have), & a comfortable but neutral headboard.

For now I might start looking at rugs in neutral colors since they’ll fit in with my future aesthetic, replace our ugly full length mirror that was left in the house, & try to figure out what to do with this odd corner in our room:

Using Better Homes & Gardens’ Arrange a Room, I was able to do this: 

It looks bigger than it is, but the door on the right wall is to a closet. There’s a radiator across from the end of the bed, so I’m left with this small area in between.

What do I put there? Any suggestions?
