Right on TARGET

I'm in the midst of making many finishing touches in my home in order to have my work photographed in order to use these images as examples of my work. Do to the decorating in me it is taking me quite some time to commit to anything I purchase for my home. I think I have my mind set of one thing and then a day later I'll see something that inspires me to go in a completely different direction.

When I first painted my bedroom I was in love with the result. I used Benjamin Ashley Gray and then used a Ralph Lauren CANDLELIGHT technique to give my bedroom a romantic feel and an aged look to my walls. Along the way I ordered some curtains and decided upon some mirrors for the room, but because I felt loss over what direction to go in. I had hit a stand still with it and have become quite stressed about. Had a lost my design MOJO?

This weekend I was going through some old magazines in order to de-clutter, but before I could let them hit the trash I had to give them all one last look thru.

It was in doing this that I realized that the bones in my bedroom where on their way to building a bedroom that looked like this:

Georgina Chapman's Apt via InStyle

The wall colors are practically identical with the help of my
Candlelight technique.

I ordered similiar curtains in Ivory when we first moved into the house:

Curtains from JCPENNY. I orginally paid $34.99 a panel and they are now on sale for $19.99 a panel.

I wanted white bedding for my bed and I was having problems finding anything in a good price range.

Ideally I was in love with the Cirrus Bedding Set from Anthropologie, but at over $300 that wasn't going to happen.

Not one to give up I had been searching for alternatives for quite some time. This morning it hit me to try Target and voila I was able to order a similar style by Simply Shabby Chic for $79.99!

I was also able to score some fabulous gray/blue and gray/beige TANGO pattern pillows at TJ MAXX for $14.99 (set of 2)

* I'm not sure if the pillows are actually going to fit in with my the style of my bedroom, but I couldn't pass them off at the price. I even snagged a pair in the beige/brown combo for my sissy's apt re-do.

I'm so happy to finally be on track again with my original room vision.
