If I’m not browsing fashion sites, you'll find me pinning pictures of floral-wallpapered stairs, turquoise-striped walls, and colorful custom-made bookshelves lining the doorways — the key word there being "pinning" not "painting." I'd love to repaint, rebuild, and replace all our furniture, but my practical husband won’t let me until we buy our own place.
So, while I pine after (and pin!) all the hard furniture installations I'd love to do some day, I like looking for easy ways to make my bedroom décor reflect my styling tastes. This summer, I'm all about mixing eclectic prints and bright splashes of color with my clothes, so I'm searching for a bright new duvet, along with other printed accents that can give me the home makeover I crave. And since the hubby insists on staying on budget, I'm heading to T.J.Maxx to see what I can find. See how I'm giving my room a refreshing summer update with just a few choice items, ahead.
