BECAUSE OF YOU

Because of you, I was able to purchase all of this for my room for Room Service Atlanta!

RSA items purchased 017

From pillows and hangers, to bedding and lamps, because of you guys, in one week I was able to purchase about 70% of the things I need for the space!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

So now, lets get down to the nitty gritty with the plan for the space!

As far as the bedding for the bunk beds, I’m going with the HENNY CIRKEL duvet from Ikea for $14.99

 

HENNY CIRKEL Duvet cover and pillowcase(s) white, gray-blue Duvet cover length: 86

 

For the mother, I’m thinking a white duvet along with this coverlet from Target. 

Home Floral Bedding Collection - Blue/White : Target

Have you guys seen the blue and white items at Target? That is the inspiration for this room! As a matter of fact, here is a picture that I snapped while shopping that I have been carrying around for a while.  I have had a love affair with navy for a while and now I finally have a space to use the color!

okay, back to the room! My plan is to go all out (well, really but not really!), for the mother’s space.  From bedding to accessories, I want her side of the room to be a little bit more luxurious in a way.  My thoughts are this, the parent is the one who has the stress everyday.  From finding a job, to making sure the kids are happy.  Kids, on the other hand, are happy go lucky and usually don’t have a care in the world…especially when they have happy parents.  I can only imagine the level of stress that this mother deals with daily.  I figure if I do EVERYTHING I can to make the mother feel better about her situation, in return I will create a happier parent and a happy parent have happy kids….A win win for EVERYONE!

I have a nightstand that I plan to paint and add new hardware to, I have picture frames that I found at Goodwill that will be painted white.   I’m sure they need more storage, so my plan is to purchase storage containers for under the beds (3 in all) like these.

I have finally found the perfect color! It’s called true navy by Better Homes and Gardens at Walmart! Now, if I can get that color matched perfectly at Home Depot, I can use another gift cardWinking smile

Awesome cheerful but restful and stunning palette!
I love the IKEA fleece throws in the lime...good pop of happy for the kids. I loved that when I saw it last August so I bought one even though it was warm out...
