Shared Bedroom Loves

We recently moved into our previous rental home.  The tenants moved out and we began renovating the place room-by-room.  It’s a small bungalow, so we have to be smart with our “stuff”.  One of the bedrooms is significantly larger than the other. My step-son loves having sleepovers with “sissy” and so far its been great since her room is currently housing all of our unpacked boxes.  His room is tiny and I’m kicking around the idea of making her room into a shared bedroom and his room into our guest room/office/playroom.  I have a lot of nature inspired pieces and artwork throughout my house, so I want to use that as a jumping off point for their room.  In addition, my plan will also use several neutral prints and some eclectic pieces to “carlyize” it.  Those who know me, know that I love a classically eclectic look.

I drew inspiration from some of these shared bedrooms and spaces (all found on either my pinterest page:  http://pinterest.com/upstyled/ or by searching twin or shared bedroom in pinterest):


Frosty Friday

I have been seriously loving all things white and airy and crisp lately! Maybe its because we are rehabbing our former rental house for ourselves and the teeny tiny rooms need to be open and bright or maybe it’s because it’s 4,000,000 degrees out and I’m longing for some chilly weather  Either way, I’m dubbing this Friday, “Frosty Friday”.

A few of my “frosty” favorites:
