I have been searching for something that inspired me, something that would serve as a jumping off point for the room. I was hoping that something inspiring would be bedding, because that is such a huge focal point and large space. I had fallen in love with a few patterns from Pottery Barn, but to be honest..the thought of spending 300 dollars on bedding, makes me sick. I know it is bedding and it is so important, but why can't I get it an affordable price!?! So frustrating.
This weekend in Hilton Head, I ventured over to Home Goods and I found my diamond in the ruff! I found this beautiful duvet set!!
A King Duvet with 2 Shams on clearance for $35!!!
I found this awesome HUGE purple pillow on clearance for $14 and it totally pulls out the purple color in the duvet set! SCORE
Just wait...it gets better! The hubs and I have been talking about finding a large dog bed for our pup Zoe for our bedroom, but without knowing what direction I was going in I didn't want to spend money on a bed for her that did not match our new room. I came across the most adorable bed I have seen and it had all the colors that I needed to match the new duvet and pillow. I had to get it and I am so glad I did...#1 becauseshe is one happy pup, and #2 because of the cute little birdies on it!
I also was able to purchase a beautiful pillow top mattress pad and an awesome ivory bed skirt with a Christmas gift that I had returned to Kohls. So it looks like our room is finally starting to come together!

There is still SO much to do, like paint, curtains, wall decor, create a headboard, dresser (either buy or refurbish one), lamps, and I am sure the list will only continue to grow! But I am very excited about out starting off point and I can't wait to share this journey with you! If you hold out a bit and wait, you really can find something beautiful and amazing and more importantly in your budget!!
Thanks for reading! :)
