WYWO: season 3- the finale

So here are the final results of the guest bedroom make-over! I think the most dramatic difference was simply painting the walls. I chose to paint only the main back wall and the adjacent wall that the door is connected to. The other two walls (there’s actually a closet opposite the bed, and then the other wall has a small window) I left white. The second thing that had big impact was to put some floor-to-ceiling curtains along on the entire wall with the window. It helped camouflage the window size (which is a little small), and it added some subtle drama.As I mentioned before, the initial inspiration was this room that I saw on AT:Chicago, but color-wise, I went in a different direction. I found this incredible bedding from Calvin Klein. Ye-ah. It was pretty much the most expensive thing in the room! But I just loved it and it was so perfect for the parentals. The room was so small, that really, it was pretty much the focal point of the room, so I figure, why not splurge a little, (it was for the parentals right?) It was on sale when I got it (although apparently not anymore), so that helped (got it at Macys).
I liked the print because the colors were so muted and it was also a little traditional. It was very borderline “Grandma” with the way the floral print was, but at the same time, it was very modern (well, it was Calvin Klein, hehe). I decided to not touch the headboard. I didn’t have the budget to get a new one, and frankly, it was in good condition, and with the walls so dark, it kind of blended in. I decided to play up the different wood tones, so I looked for a light wood but clean lined dresser. I found one from IKEA. For the lamp, I had this idea for one with a clear glass base, but finding one within budget was a little hard. I finally found one at Sears. It was originally $89.99 but was 25% off- and the coolest thing was it’s touch-sensitive! So basically, you just touch any part of the metal, and it turns on or off! Like magic!Here’s the info on the rest of the pieces if anyone is interested:
