Bedroom Makeover You'll Love

Hi friends. I've been doing all sorts of things and Jim is working overtime so I haven't been on the computer a whole heckuva lot. I miss you all!  We're hoping to get another computer soon but until then I may be scarce around these parts. Jim works in the liquor industry and the time between now and New Year's Eve is the busiest season for them all. He has a gajillion websites to get live and he's working his little fingers to the bone! 

What have I been doing?  Painting the trim in my foyer and trying to decide on a color for the foyer, up the stairs, and the upstairs hallway. It's quite a bit of wall and we want something light and neutral but not gray. Jim is a little over the whole gray trend (gasp-faint-"Where are my smelling salts?" ) So I was browsing around Benjamin Moore's Facebook page while Jim was eating lunch and lo and behold I find one of my favorite bloggers being featured!  Woo hoo!

Taryn who blogs at Design, Dining & Diapers recently made over her master bedroom for a whopping $175 and it came out so beautifully!!  Here's a little glimpse of her loveliness.

The gold against the gray is gorgeous. I like how the gold warms up the coolness of the wall color and the geometric curvy stencil is a great contrast with the boxy frames.

She didn't make any grand furniture changes which I was happy about since her furniture is lovely to begin with. I'm not always sure changing furniture that is classic and with simple lines is the way to go.  Her room makeover proves that changes need not be huge or expensive to make a giant impact!

Taryn made a chic and stylish room and I am so happy to share it with you today. I hope you go over to her blog and see the rest of the room!  I didn't want to give too much away here.  Plus, Taryn has lots of eye candy over at her blog and you'll be hooked for sure!

  1. I'm going to have to go and check it out! I've been in a lack-of-blogging phase too. My kids are using my computer for home school and I've been more into keeping my life in a less chaotic state recently then blogging. (go figure)

    Hope you're enjoying the holidays!

  2. You are just so sweet Jenny! Thank you so much for giving my bedroom a big shout out and saying such kind words. I really appreciate it and I'm so flattered. THANK YOU! Hope you have a great week. Happy painting :)
