More Bedroom Updates

My titles are the worst.

Now that I got that piece of information out of the way, I want to show you guys the cool pillows I found at west elm this weekend. I had about 10 things to do today (I'm writing this on Sunday), and on the list was to make curtains for our dining area. I did get that done (yeah! Pictures soon!), but something I didn't expect to finish was finish the pillow situation on our master bed. Our IKEA is really close to our west elm here in Atlanta, and as I was driving to IKEA to get a curtain rod to hang the curtains,  I decided to pop into west elm. Dangerous territory. Actually, it always seems that when I go, I either find lots of things I "need," or nothing at all. However, I always enjoy perusing. 

Well, I have been on the hunt for pillows for our bed, and like I posted before, I knew what I had in mind, as far as a color scheme. I love the curtains I hung in there, and knew that I wanted something "Statement making." What's funny/bad, is that I bought one yard of the ikat fabric seen here to have euros made with, but when I brought it home, I wasn't feeling it. I'm okay with it though, because I'll still get pillows made for another room with it (I still love the fabric!).

Anyway, when I popped into west elm, I happened upon the Jacquard leaf euro in "Flax." I loved it! I had seen the bedding before, and really adored it (i actually even considered buying sheets or something to have my window treatments for my bathroom made with. It wouldn't have worked, but I just loved the fabric). So, I got two of those in the euro shams, and also two of the "nomad" shams in king size. I LOVED the peridot color, which is a citron color that is PERFECT in our bedroom. I have long loved the combination of rust and that yellow color. You see it in many a Jcrew catalog. the colors just bounce off and with each other perfectly!!! It was meant to be. It also plays really nicely with the new curtains. 

Without further ado:

the colors are a little weird here. less rich than in person, and the pillow shames are a bright citron YELLOW, not lime.

i really, really adore the combo together!

I kept going in there to look at it. I'm a weirdo when it comes to color combinations. The right ones can really send me over the edge! haha.

andddd, I bought those frames at goodwill last week! I have the exact same ones in our guest bathroom. They are from Michael's but I got these for a steal at Goodwill for only $5 each. Don't forget the headboard that will also go below them. And I have to fill them with photos - thinking black and white. Maybe even wedding photos if i'm feeling romantic. :)

Ignore the tables at the end of the bed. I made a decision on my bench fabric, and I'm going to be building the bench legs out of these Target tables! I can't wait to do/share my bench project with you guys. 

it's really cozy in our bedroom at night, too:

the peach really makes it warm. I love it!

anyway, the end. I love the new bedding!

  3. Random but I just recovered some mid century dining chairs with the fabric on the bottom second from the right, the ikat chevron one. I have some left over fabric so plan to make some pillows, I love it so much! Your bedroom looks lovely!
