Dijon Dreaming (updates)

A few months ago I posted this
Client Inspiration Board:

Dijon Dreaming

Julie & Evan Master by peaceofhome 

I created this inspiration board for some of our dear friends who live in Austin.
Julie is a self-claimed "non spender of money when it comes to clothes and house decor"
Well, she asked the right person for help!
After we picked the color scheme she gave me creative freedom to choose the decor elements,
which made the process so much fun!
 I got started by designing the Inspiration Board, shopped for items online,
then we made a weekend of it, went for a visit, and found even more great items on our shopping trip!

Here is the progress that's been made so far...



changes made:
*cleaner, simpler lines
*removed the side table/ small lamp which were crowding the space
*added a floor lamp with a mustard shade to keep the light for reading
*tossed in a few decorative pillows to bring the white from the bedding
across the room and to tie in the mustard accents
*added a small basket on the right for holding books

the dresser went from a light brown

to a peaceful grey with knobs that pop!

*de-cluttered the surface, but kept their favorite things.
*removed the wall clock that was too small for the space
*willow branches in the yummy dijon vase added a natural element to the room

finally their bed received some dijon and grey treatment, too.


we shopped around on saturday and found those great fabrics,
then i sewed pillow covers and the bolster pillow.
(better pic of pillows coming soon!
along with a pillow cover tutorial!)

love those lamps?
found them on clearance at crate and barrel for just $40/ea!

and notice the window treatments?
we took down the sheets that had been on the windows since before they purchased the house
and added these grey drapes from Ikea for only $40!

they add such great contrast to the light walls and bedding.

This room transformation ended up being rather thrifty,
from the great deal on items listed above, to repurposing the dresser,
making the pillow covers, and shopping at the fav Home Goods for throw pillows, etc.

We still have a few things left to do...
*decor on the wall above the bed
*rug at the foot of the bed
*mirror above the dresser

...but she has a baby due in the next few weeks!
So these tasks obviously got bumped to the back burner,
and all her attention was focused on her sweet baby's nursery!
but someday those finishing touches will be made in their master bedroom.

Until then, I am glad to know that she and her hubby
"sleep better in a decorated room."
