Decorating my New Room: Brainstorming Edition

So in less than a month I will be moving into my new house aka I have a new room to decorate! I never put too much effort in my other two rooms because I knew I was only going to be there for a year, but this time I will be in this same room for the next two years so I really want to make it as special as possible. My room for next year has dark hardwood floors, white walls, and I have french doors (#love) Decorating wise here is what I am thinking:


I bought this comforter before first year and it has really worked well for me. I bought it to fit a queen sized bed even though I have been in a twin for the past two year just in case I ever moved somewhere with a bigger bed, and that decision is paying off! The color is so fun, and I plan for the coral color of the bed to be my “pop color.”

If you follow me on tumblr, you will know that I have been stressing out about the bed situation. The house i’m living in is pretty old and the steps are super narrow. The people who lived there before warned us that it can be tough to bring big furniture up the stairs and that she had to build a bed platform in her room. For a while I thought I was going to have to go to Lowes, borrow some power tools, and use a lot of girl power to build something. Turns out that bed platforms can be bought from department stores and delivered to your home! Crazy huh?! It actually works out really well because I’m not sure what other furniture I can fit up the stairs so the fact that there are drawers underneath is huge!

I don’t have a headboard, so I’m thinking I might get a large tapestry to put behind my bed. That’s still up for debate. Here are the two I’m deciding between right now. ( Potentially to match my comforter, but i’m scared that it is way off?)

I’m trying to be as financially savvy as possible, but it is so hard to stay away from Anthropologie right now. I’m really going to stop buying clothes and completely focus on things for the room! Honestly, I just need to go into a Marshalls or Homegoods store and I’m sure I will find what I’m looking for. As of right now I think I still want a rug (something white and shaggy maybe) some type of shelving (maybe put it at the foot of my bed) some fun artsy lighting concept (hanging globes?) and some more wall art. In my head it will be something very clean and chic. My bed and the potential tapestry would be the focal point, and everything else would be black and white. In my head I can picture it, I just need to find the right things to make it come together perfectly!

I have 19 days until I move in so I will definitely make an updated post as I get closer. Eventually I will show y’all the finished product. Let me know if you have any recommendations of what I should buy, and for sure share your opinions between the two tapestries!
