A Tween Bedroom...Makeover!

 

My daughter's bedroom makeover is finally finished!  We've been working on this room for quite some time now.  It started with a fresh coat of paint in a funky Chartreuse color.  My goal was to design a traditional bedroom with a vintage vibe, and of course vibrant color!  



Our color scheme is Chartreuse, Turquoise and pink!  Our Inspiration for the room was this pillow below with the vintage flowered design.



This Fontanta bedroom furniture the Hubby and I bought over 15 years ago!  It used to be a natural pine...I painted it bright white.  The art above the bed is simple framed scrap book papers...easy, easy!  It helps add height to her bed, since there's no headboard.

And ahhh, the chandy....we love this chandelier and bought it on Ebay for a great price.  I think it's my daughter's favorite part of the room!  Mine too.



The twin bed was looking small in the room since the turquoise comforter is very thin.  So I used a thick white down feather comforter at the foot of the bed.  Ahhh, a little luxury in the kid's rooms...love that!

So that's how I design a chic tween bedroom, for less!  A few thrifty finds, freshly painted bedroom furniture and a chic lil' chandelier...equals one happy little girl ;)

Moo Printing...A Review!

 

Have guys, have you heard of Moo Printing?  Cute name isn't it?  Moo is THE place where you can find and create custom business cards, mini cards, post cards and more!

Some of you know that in addition to blogging here at Finding Fabulous, I also work as a design consultant for my local business Finding Fabulous by design.  Just a few weeks ago, I changed the design of my blog to flow better with my business website. And when that was finished, there was only one more thing I needed...business cards.

That's where Moo came to the rescue!

I just wanted a simple, pre-made design that was stylish and affordable.  I didn't want to have to design the cards to look exactly like my websites (although Moo can certainly do that for you). 

Check out a few of their pre-mades...


Here's the design I chose...
I love em'!  Super easy, no hassle, quick shipping, affordable prices.  Moo Printing made my quest for cute business cards...simple.  Check out Moo Printing!

Frame Galleries & Groupings!

 

Today I'm sharing a few  Frame Galleries I have in my home.  I love hanging frames in groups, because they create large focal points! So instead of hanging large expensive wall art, you can hang affordable frames filled with treasured family photos!

You can even purchase thrift store frames and spray paint them all the same color if your really looking to save!  These frames below I purchased at Target.


One of my favorite things are black and white photos!  I put my favorite color photos on a disc, and head to Walgreens or CVS.  There I can change my pictures to black and white, crop and make other minor adjustments. 


Here's our home office and these are my Framed Coral Prints!  I snagged the prints from Allposters.com and then framed them with inexpensive frames from Garden Ridge.  I love how this grouping fills in the space above the desk adding heighth as well.


This gallery is in our hallway upstairs.  As you can see, it's not finished yet as a few of the photos are not in the frame and taped to the glass. I'm still deciding on which photos to use.  No rhyme or reason with the pattern here...I just laid my frames out and got creative!

Mood Board...Hotel Inspired Master Bedroom!

  

Thought I'd share a mood board I created for one of my clients in Charlotte today.  On her wish list...a Master Bedroom Retreat where she can get away from the stresses of her daily life and just unwind.

Here's the design...



A few items the client already has (like the brown curtains and bed), and the other items are stylish and affordable finds!  

The teal area behind the sunburst mirror is wallpaper which would cover the entire wall behind the bed, although we may paint that area in a similar color.  At around $30 a gallon which can easily cover one wall...paint gives you the biggest decorating bang for your buck.  The overall look?  Hotel inspired, yet simple & chic.
