Decorating our Room + Cox & Cox

When MR.P and I moved into our house I decided I wanted to decorate one room at a time.  I knew that my brain couldn't handle more than one BIG project at a time.  So now that our living room is done, I am moving onto our room!  When we got married I let MR.P pick out the duvet.  I wanted him to feel like the room wasn't super girly.  He picked out the perfect one!  It's a darker sage green that looks solid, but its not.  It's made up of large circles intertwined together.  Perfect for us!  Not too girl, not too masculine.  I don't usually like bed in a bag sets, so we just bought the duvet.  Then we picked out some pillows from Pottery Barn.  I wanted to include some stripes, some different colors, and some depth to the room.  After a few trips we found the perfect pillows :)  For the last few years our room was paired with dark wood and green curtains.  It worked while living in an apartment.  Now that our room is a little larger than a 4x5 the room needs a little more depth.  I decided I wanted to add some vintage looking frames and accessories.  I felt that would be an inexpensive way to make the room more what I am looking for.  It's amazing what accessories can do!

I also decided to add these drapes.  They were a bday present given to me by my wonderful sisters-in-law!  I couldn't have been more excited about them!


So the bedroom is coming together slowly, but surely.  I'll definitely share pictures soon.  BUT, I did want to share this awesome site with y'all.  As I was reading Brunch at Saks I came across Cox & Cox.  I am so sad, BUT SOO excited to say I am in love with this new find. If only I lived in the UK.  Oh well.  I'll just get some inspiration.  Here are a few things I hope to find similar for our room.

This shadow box would look perfect with all of our wedding stuff in it.  My sweet younger sister made me one with our wedding invitation, program, my headband I wore, pearls, and a picture of us.  I want to switch it out of the black frame and put it in this one.  We have a "P" in gold next to it that would look great!


These frames would look great on the opposite wall in our room.  I've been at a loss for what to do with that wall until I saw these.  I just LOVE them!!

 

Just love this site and the inspiration it helped me with.  I really do promise to share pics of our room soon.  It's just not really clean at the moment ;)

I love Grommet panels... funny thing is we just ordered some from amazon. Isn't it so cruel how most panels don't come in pairs? I can't wait to see it!
