Michaela's Room Tour

Hello MBG readers! this is Michaela Warner - I'm here today to show you my bedroom makeover. What's a girl to do when she finds herself at her parent's home for the summer with a bedroom calling her name for a redesign?! Redesign it, of course!  As an interior design major and graduation soon approaching, I'm always seeking out design projects, so this summer I took on my own bedroom.  The inspiration for my room was the beautiful palette of colors seen above. 

I'm head-over-heels for Caitlin Wilson Textile's pretty fabric, so those were the hues that determined the direction of my color story!  Fresh minty walls and rejuvenating peachy pink accents - that was enough to make me go for it!

 

My DIY side came in handy when redoing my bedroom, as I needed to stick to a budget my wallet would be happy with.  I refinished the white dresser (a Goodwill find for only $70), gave the nightstand a fresh coat of dove gray paint, sewed the curtains with my sweet grandma's help, and put together a collection of architectural paintings and prints by talented artists for the gallery wall above my desk.  

Now when I'm blogging & working on client projects, I have something extra pretty and inspiring to glance up at every once and a while.  As a lover of all things handmade, I made sure to hunt down my favorite etsy shops and add some specialty pieces to my room.

I'm a firm believer in absolutely adoring the place you call home by filling it with treasures you love.  I'm also pretty sure a certain english cream golden retriever will make you smile almost every time you see her.  Meet Hope, she's my personal assistant & sometimes we take breaks to read the latest House Beautiful together :)
