royale retreat

**I meant to post this earlier but we don’t have internet here in CA**

So I never really told you guys exactly why I was leaving for California.

Basically, I have a new room (and house) to decorate! I’m on a tight spending budget but I’ll whet your appetite with a few photos of my room so far. I hope you all enjoy!!

I now have a duvet cover that matches the floral pillows. 🙂 My bed is soooo AMAZING!!

I LOVE my new bedside tables, lamps, and my alarm clock. This one (round one) is from Ikea, so is the alarm clock. This bedside table is rounder and stockier than the other one so I decided to pair it with a round lamp.

This bedside table is from Pottery Barn. I like how the tables and lamps don’t match. If they did I think it would look too much like a hotel room and way less antique. This more elongated lamp was paired with the lamp that was spindlier. 🙂

The lamps and shades are from Ikea. They sold the lamps I have in white ceramic, but I decided that too much white would get really heavy in the room. However, I still wanted something white– I didn’t want the lamps to be strong accents. The glass base lamps were the perfect find.

The glass really lightens up the room with it’s interesting and playful shape.

I found this Klimt painting at Ikea (yay, I LOVE Ikea!!) I needed something long to fill up a wide wall, but ended up moving my bed where the painting would have gone. I found a new wall for my painting, which matches surprisingly well with my duvet cover.

the beauty of where the painting is, is that it’s opposite a wall of glassed mirrors so I get to see it from any part of my room. 🙂

**UPDATE** I forgot to say the room cost a grand total of ~ 800 USD. Not bad.

Remember to follow me on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram to see what projects I’m up to!
