More Patterns

Wow, winter arrived rather unexpectedly this week in Utah when it went from 90 degrees to 45 degrees in a matter of days.  This cold weather is making me think of cozy things like blankets and quilts.  And although it was not my intention to buy any new bedding for my bedroom, I couldn't resist this quilt from my local Urban Outfitters store, when I saw that it was only, wait for it, $30! I knew that the colours would work with the colours I already had on the bed, namely blue and orange, but was a bit worried that with all the patterns going on it may clash.  But I think it actually works and enhances the boho vibe that was already there.  And if the patterned quilt wasn't enough, I also managed to score this rug for only $35.  And it's the same rug that I blogged about here but in blue instead of grey.  Oh, and that rug did arrive, amazingly, and looks great, but the office is such a mess at the moment that I hesistate to show you it.  Oh well maybe just a small piccy.

Here's a couple of piccys of the bedroom before the quilt.

And here it is after.

You may notice that I also have a new headboard.  It's the upholstered nailhead headboard from West Elm, that I came upon for half the price at DownEast (our local outlet store for all things Pottery Barn, West Elm & WS Home).  I'm still waiting on the bedframe which is currently on sale at West Elm, but unfortunately on back-order.  Again, we'll see if it actually materializes.  The current bed will be making it's way to The Cottage which we are getting ready to rent out for the winter.  Come back for a blog post on that transformation.

And here's a small picture of the office with the rug.  It does a good job of hiding the plastic floor protector under the chair.  I'll post better pictures once all of the mess is out of there.

Hubby is still working on the garagemahal and my lastest project is the music room.  Some major changes are going on there, so hope you come back soon.
