is sharing her bedroom

Welcome Wednesdays

I thought it would be fun to start a new feature here on Today Hilary called Welcome Wednesdays. Every Wednesday I'll share an aspect of my house, whether it's something I recently designed, decorated, renovated, purchased, need to change, organized, like/dislike...

Ok, to catch everyone up to speed about 3 years ago Danny and I purchased the ultimate fixer-upper, a 5 bedroom and 4 bathroom craftsman style house in NJ.

Sounds great so far, right? Wrong.........

This house needed WORK. We've done 80% of everything we wanted to on a major budget and alot of it we did ourselves. I'm kicking myself because I don't have too many before pictures to really show the depth of this project but I think you'll get the idea.

Let's begin in the master bedroom:

I only have this before shot

bedroom furniture, The Door Store (from previous condo)
duvet from IKEA
throw pillows from HSN
curtain, West Elm

aries pillowcases from Urban Outfitters
(Danny and I are both Aries)

lamp from HomeGoods

water bottle from Starbucks
dream journal from Anthropologie
capri blue volcano candle from Anthropologie

vase, Crate and Barrel

good fortune bowl Urban Outfitters
kabbalah candle, White Barn Candle Co.

pot, Crate and Barrel

photographs, HomeGoods

fan, Lowe's

Let me know what you think!

How do you decorate your place on a budget?

Until tomorrow,
