    Girl Bedroom Decor Ideas

    We did a little redecorating in one of our upstairs bedrooms and wanted to share some girl bedroom decor ideas we used in this project. This bedroom was my son’s room and he decided to move to the basement. You know how teenage boys are with wanting their own space. We then decided the upstairs bedroom would be a great place for our daughter when she comes home from college. I happen to think it’s the best bedroom in the house since it has an 11ft vaulted ceiling and plenty of natural light.

The house had a typical split foyer look, even though it wasn’t a split foyer. This look was created by the cantilevered second story and the low roof pitch. The cantilever we could live with, but the roof pitch had to change! I’m going to give you some insight into how we increased the pitch of the roof and roughly how much it cost.

    Our Favorite Living Room Floor Lamps

    I’ve been wanting a floor lamp in our living room for a while, and I finally took some time to do some shopping to find the perfect one for this space. I ended up finding one at World Market that had recently been discontinued, but I was lucky and got one of the last ones! I love how it looks in our living room and ties in with all of the other black accents.
