I redecorated the bedroom this year - took me ages to find the duvet cover and drapes that I wanted, but now that it's finally done I think it looks pretty fab.  Here it is before...

before
It wasn't so bad, but it was kind of boring.  I was going for like Exotic Elegance, but it never quite landed.  I think I needed to go way overboard to get that.  
Here's After - I was going for French Chateau...
After!

 I really love the duvet cover - it's from Pottery Barn and supposedly based on "A 250-year-old hand-blocked textile from Provence".  I got the pile of pillows from Pier One, and that bedside table on the right I found at a Salvo for $15 - it looked really crappy but now I think it looks really adorable.  The paint is "Revere Pewter" by Benjamin Moore.  It's just a nice, cool grey.


I LOVE the drapes - they're gold and old fashioned, but, whatevs, that's how I roll, yo. They're pintucked and have a really nice shimmer and the valence has a gorgeous trim. 

So, that is mostly it.  I still need to have framed this little print we bought in Paris last year but, for the most part, I have my Dream Bedroom.  Next up:  Dream Bathroom.  (:
