My Tula Pink Inspired Room - Part 2

Wednesday, January 25, 2012
My room is almost done!  In part one I showed you the paint colors, some of my new furniture & accessories.  Last week I showed you my new quilt top that will eventually be the quilt for my bed in this room.  Well now I have most of it done so I figured I'd share an update!

These shelf/basket combo pieces came from Home Goods.  When I bought them I had planned on painting them white or coral, but now I think I might leave them as is for a while.  I hung the quilt Rachel gave me and added a few accessories.

 The birds I've had for a while.  I think they came from JoAnns.  The candle was a recent present and smells quite yummy.  The candle holder was another Home Goods find.  {That place has so much good stuff!}

I'm still using a quilt as a temporary curtain... with giant ricrac as the tie back.

I traded the white shams for large 27" square navy ones.
{Pillow forms from local craft store & covers from Ikea}
I also added sheer white curtains above the bed & computer. {also from Ikea}

I wasn't sure where to store my DVDs.  I settled on hiding them behind my door on a slim iron dvd rack from the container store.

When my door is open you don't even know it is there.

My entertainment/storage part of the room is done.  The TV blends right in with the navy wall & when it isn't on you barely notice it.

I love the little boat but I'm not sold on it's location yet.  It actually has hardware on the back to be hung on the wall but I haven't decided where I want it.

The white piece has a ton of storage for all my photos and collectibles.  The tall pieces have glass doors which also helps protect everything.
1. Ceramics I made in High School
2. A photo of me & Lauren
3. A favorite childhood photo of me & my brother
4. A young photo of Elijah & A photo from my college graduation
5. Harry Potter Legos {you are never too old for legos}
6. Some of my M&M collectibles.  Did you know they made MLB M&M dispensers and candy?  I love my Phillies dispenser!

I used the 360 app on my phone to create this photo.  You can click on it to see it larger.

Just a few more finishing touches... and a quilted quilt & I'll be done!

Love it! I like the storage piece as is! I have a stash of Neptune fabric, and now I'm inspired to start sewing with some of it! :)

Love it! And you know I think that those drawers look nice that colour!! It is coming along very nicely!!

Cindy said...

It is the sort of room that would make me almost wish to get sick so I'd have an excuse to spend lots of time in it.

Audrie said...

Love! The colours are gorgeous. I wish I had enough space in my living room because I've always loved that entertainment centre.

Erica said...

Great room, nice colours. I love the LEGO! It was the hit around here at Christmas with my grown children and their spouses/boyfriends. I think I'm going to include some in everybody's stocking every year.

It looks awesome! You've done a great job with it! I would leave the shelves as is. Especially if they are woven baskets. I would think paint will chip off them over time?

Helen L said...

LOVE your room!! The light blue color is so refreshing and calming: could you tell us the brand and name? (I have some painting to do around here!) thanks!!

LynCC said...

You have created a super-lovely room! So peaceful-feeling and beautiful. I love the painting scheme.

Natalia Bonner said...

Very cute Julie! Where did you get that little aqua dresser thing? I want one!

Quiltjane said...

That is looking very spiffy indeed. It is all coming together nicely.

You room is coming along nicely. Maybe the boot could go on the wall above one or other of your night stands. Just a thought.
Have a great day.
Always, Queenie

Those basket shelves were such a great find, we love how they fit in with the rest of the decor and styling in the room!

It looks so awesome! That color is just perfect with the Neptune. And I can't believe how your TV really does disappear. I thought that it wasn't in yet when I first saw the photo before reading what you wrote about it.

It looks like the perfect place to get away and relax after a busy day.
