Brave, not beige.

Have you seen that Ikea commercial with that "Be brave not beige" song? I am notoriously beige and my sister and friend Jessy thought that commercial was just hilarious and thought I should listen to that girl's message! Well I managed to "out beige" myself. My bedroom was ridiculous. EVERYTHING was some shade of brown or cream. And not in a peaceful monochromatic way. So I took a stand and decided to be brave and introduce beautiful (and spring worthy) orange and green! I have to say my mood is lighter and happier already! I also brought in bamboo for Justin, he's very zen and has been dying to get some in the house. Let me know what you think!
The new room


Below are 2 pictures I found at Tarjay that are painted silk


Here's my dresser arrangement, it's next to a big floor lamp which looks nice but I wanted to get the detail of the dried, bold flowers.

I love it! Thank god you got some color in there. Aren't you the girl who was nagging me to buy shirts in a color other than black and white? At least I have a lot of red in my house. :-)

Hi! You don't know me, I found your blog through a friend of a friend of a friend... I love your new bedspread! Orange is my favorite. Where did you get it?

I tried to buy that beautiful bedspread, but they don't sell it online and we don't have an Ikea in Colorado :( Bummer.
