We'll done, totally live-able and still sophisticated.

I'll take a filtered picture over a close up of a candle any day.

A beautiful deep, dark gray with a hint of navy on it would make that quilt pop. I'd also go with a white, plain headboard. Even a blank canvas would work, just to frame the bed against a dark wall.

I'd rather go handmade. Plenty of options on etsy, I love these:

Here's what I would do:
Lose the rug, the two black lamps, the wood bookcases on the right and the leather chairs (sorry they just don't work with this room).

Paint the walls white, change the lampshade to solid pink, paint all the artwork frames a leaf green and get a comfy pale colored chair.

If you have to keep the bookcases paint them white or pale pink and de-clutter them, try to stay away from dark colors.

Just my two cents.

I've found a lot of beautiful pieces on the curb. I've got a Nelson pear pendant I paid $80 for, a Jacobsen plywood stool I paid $30 for, a pendleton blanket I paid $6 for.

I think if your eyes are open you can find good deals everywhere. To the person who said they live in NYC and there are no deals to be had, not true. I hear of plenty of people who stumble upon an old school or office tossing out their old Eames chairs etc.

I'm about to hit my 8 year anniversary, I use to have a framed wedding picture on my nightstand but I swapped it out for a floating frame full of all of our photobooth pictures. They range from when we started dating to a few months ago.

What a great job you did, so much personality and the bedroom is a surprise, I love it!

If I could I would just change two tiny things: 1) Move all the curtain rods to the ceiling, it will make the place seem taller. 2) Remove the artwork from over the bed, it distracts from the gorgeous chandelier you've got there (maybe move that down a link or two?).

450 is not a lot and you've done an amazing job! Good luck!

Yes, I just painted my bathroom. I could no longer deal with the Brown/Gray/Beige scheme. (

It looks a million times better, we did a better job painting than the people our landlord hired before we moved in and I doubt she'll even notice. We did all white, I suppose it's a different issue if you paint something in a color like red, green, black or yellow.

Wait...Basil&Bones 'Hunting for horns is harmless and fun'? I'm hoping you meant 'looking' for shed horns and not killing for them 'cause that's not exactly harmless...

I've been the upstairs and downstairs neighbor. Nothing helps more than rug pads and no shoes.

I had a downstairs neighbor who frequently called the cops on our cat (that's right) we weren't even home and our cat just had the run-around-cat-crazies.

After a few calls to the police they informed her we could charge her with harassment. She was old/crazy us being above her was the very least of her problems.

@Amber If you have an iPhone there's an app for that. It allows you to track and message your phone if lost. You can even wipe the information if you feel you'll never see it again.
